Programs

Programs are a fundamental part of our PTA as we seek to provide opportunities for student and parent growth and enrichment. 

 

Programs for the 2021-2022 school year include:

 

 

Reflections:  This National PTA sponsored arts recognition program gives students a chance to express themselves and find their own voice in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, photography, music composition, and visual arts. The theme this year is "I Will Change the World By". 

 
 

 

Diverse Abilities Days:  Students will rotate through stations during their specials time to explore many different ways our students learn. 

 

 

 

Multicultural Night:  This is a fun evening for the whole family to come and explore some of the different countries and cultures represented at Vaughn. There will be food samples, performances, crafts, and more!

Red Ribbon Week Program - 10/27/2021

 

Red Ribbon Week Speaker 2021

 

Vaughn Elementary had Keith Davis come to the school on Wednesday morning, Oct 27th for an interactive, inspiring, and motivational presentation for all grade levels.   Keith Davis is a former college and professional football player who has learned many lessons about winning and losing over the course of his life. After a football injury ended his National Football League career, Keith decided to dedicate his life’s work to motivational speaking in hopes of being a positive voice for today’s youth. His resounding message to students is that with effort, a focus on education and the excellence they already possess, they too can be champions.

 

Keith shared his personal testimony of growing up in a rough inner-city neighborhood in Los Angeles, California. Regardless of his circumstances, and with the help of a mentor, Keith decided to P.U.S.H. (Persevere Until Success Happens) for a better future. His drive and determination helped him overcome obstacles both in the classroom and beyond. By working hard to improve his remedial reading skills, Keith achieved his dream of receiving a football scholarship to play at the University of Southern California (USC), and was the first person in his family to attend college.

 

At USC, Keith was an All-Conference player and the team’s lead tackler. He won two championship rings, one of which was a Rose Bowl Championship. Keith held the highest grade point average on the football team and graduated with a degree in Business Finance. He then signed with the New York Giants and was one of the strongest players on the team, bench-pressing 515 pounds and leg-pressing 1,800 pounds!  He and his colleague showed off their strength by doing push-ups with a student and Howard standing on them!  The message being no matter how little you may be, or big, all your dreams are equal and can be achieved.
