Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. We are so excited to be offering a second Scholastic Book Fair this year. 

Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings to school the books kids want to read. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair in the VHEC Media Center. We look forward to seeing you and your family!

If you have any questions, please contact Elizabeth Hester (hesterej@vestavia.k12.al.us) or Kristen Comer (kmdcomer@gmail.com).

Vestavia Hills City Schools is committed to aiding students and staff in creating a 21st century learning environment. We are beginning our second year of implementing “Bring Your Own Device,” or BYOD. For purposes of BYOD, “Devices” are personally owned wireless portable electronic equipment used for instructional purposes. Students in BYOD classrooms may be allowed but not be required to bring and use personal, portable, electronic devices starting at the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year. In order to comply with Federal regulations, all student owned devices will be subject to Internet filtering policies.  VHEC is a 100% BYOD school.
