CHARACTER CLUB

The Vestavia Central Character Club meets once a

month before school to address the importance of

good character. The students get a small breakfast

snack while listening to a speaker address that

month’s character trait. It is lots of fun, but more

importantly the students are learning lifelong skills of

good citizenship. We hope your child will become a

part of this wonderful VHEC tradition! We will be

sending home a sign-up sheet for T-shirts, so please

look for that in your child’s backpack. Also, please

sign-up in your child’s classroom at open house to help

send breakfast snacks for Character Club. Please

make plans for your child to join us for our first

meeting ... Friday, September 5, 2014 at 7:20 a.m.

BYOD at VHEC

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.
