    Dear VSY Families and Community, 

    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!  This year, our theme is Adventures in Learning at VSY.  We will continue to focus on the Montessori life skills, kindness, environmentalism, cultural studies, and student voice. We have planned many school events and activities to ensure your children will have a fantastic year of learning. 

    I want to congratulate the VSY students and staff on our “A” grade for 2021-2022 school year.  We had wonderful achievement levels and fantastic learning gains. That success was the result of hard work and a team effort between teachers, staff, students, and families. This year we will combine a focus on the new Florida B.E.S.T. Standards and the Montessori philosophy as we prepare your children for their future and help them to become engaged global citizens.   

    We encourage you to get involved in your child’s education and school life this year. We are planning many opportunities to bring our community together during the year and I hope that you can join us.  This includes Parent trainings in Montessori Education, Family Events, Book Fairs, Parent PE, Arts Alive, PTA Meetings, School Advisory Council and the many volunteer opportunities schoolwide and in-class.   

     Please join us on social media as I continue to share all the amazing happenings at VSY and celebrate our staff, our students, and our school.  Our goal will be to provide you with a window into the daily life at VSY as we work to provide students with exceptional learning experiences in a Montessori environment. You can find me on Instagram @msfeltonvsy and on our school Facebook page Virginia Shuman Young Montessori.  You’ll find Ms. Campolo on Instagram at @mscampolovsy.  Please join us by following today!   

    I am eager to work with you to support your child throughout their years at VSY.   Please do not hesitate to email or call me should you need my assistance.  I invite you to contact me at or 754-322-9050. 

     Let’s have an AMAZING year! 

    Cyndi Felton
