A Message from Our Principal

Dear Veterans Park Students and Families,

Sheri Prendergast

I am thrilled to be joining the Veterans Park community for this school year. I feel privileged to be part of this amazing school, and I am beyond excited to meet everyone in person. Thank you for your warm welcome and kind words of encouragement as we begin our new year. It is evident that VP is a special place filled with dedicated staff, supportive families, and incredible students.

I look forward to partnering with you to provide students with the academic, social, and emotional support to help them achieve their highest potential. I am confident that this year will include learning experiences that will enhance each child’s development and include lots of laughter along the way! Please do not hesitate to contact me via phone or email if you have any questions or concerns.
