News and Announcements






Vaughan Elementary and the Vaughan PTSA are proud to announce the first annual Vaughan “Rocket Blast” fundraiser! 

What is the Vaughan “Rocket Blast” fundraiser?

“Rocket Blast” is Vaughan’s own fundraiser similar to other fundraisers we have conducted in the past.  However, instead of soliciting sponsors and support for running laps, you will work with your student(s) to contact as many family and friends as you can and ask them to support your student(s) in the completion of fun, creative obstacles, our “Rocket Blast”.   This fundraiser will last for approximately two weeks beginning with a Pep Rally and concluding with the “Rocket Blast” event.  During these two weeks, we ask that you work with your child(ren) to donate to the school’s “Rocket Blast” efforts. Thank you so much for your support of this fundraiser. We know that with your help, "Rocket Blast" will be a huge success for our students and school!
