Vine Street Elementary  

Our Mission

Vine Street Elementary School strives to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of each and every student to ensure that they are college and career ready at the end of high school.  The school, parents, and the community work in partnership to develop each student's academic excellence, social responsibility, and personal integrity.  All stakeholders are committed to the implementation of State and District grade level standards.


We will carry out our mission with commitment to create a community of lifelong successful learners.  Successful learners will be able to access information through the appropriate use of written, oral, and technological resources.  All students will demonstrate proficiency according to State and District standards.  They will be prepared to apply their knowledge in order to function independently and to contribute to our global society.

Principal's Message

Principal Lowry's April Message


As we enter the final quarter of our school year, it is important for us to model, practice, and reinforce on a daily basis our shared and high expectations for teaching, learning, and relationships that can and will transform our school into model for all public schools.  An important part of this effort t is for all of us adults to teach and model the importance of finishing strongly.  It is not how we start, but how we finish that counts the most.  In order for us to finish strongly, I ask our entire Vine Street School Community to re-focus our attention and energy on the following:



·       Let us maintain our focus on CA-Standards-based Instruction


·       Let us model and expect excellent attendance and punctuality


·       Let us continue to value precious instructional time


·       Let us teach/re-teach respect for authority and property


·       Let us prepare all of our students for SBA TEST SUCCESS.



Our 3rd-6th Grade Unicorns will participate in our annual SBA Test that begins the week of April 30th and continues through June 1st.  While the SBA tests will not wholly define the health of our school community, it is extremely important that our students perform well on it.  The SBA tests provide our students an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge of grade level CA Standards and skills.  For our students in Pre-K/Kdgtn.-   Gr. 2, our teachers and students are also preparing for a strong finish, both academically and with regard to attendance. Remember to tell friends, family members, neighbors, and acquaintances…

COME TO VINE STREET SCHOOL!

Mensaje de abril del Director Lowry:

A medida que entramos en el último trimestre de nuestro año escolar, es importante para nosotros modelar, practicar y re enforzar diariamente nuestras expectativas para la enseñanza, el aprendizaje y las relaciones que pueden y van a transformar nuestra escuela en un modelo para todas las escuelas públicas. Una parte importante de este esfuerzo es para todos nosotros los adultos para enseñar y modelar la importancia de acabar con firmeza. No se cómo empezar, sino cómo podemos terminar es lo que más cuenta. Para terminar, pido encarecidamente a toda nuestra comunidad escolar Vine Street, re-enfocar nuestra atención y energía en lo siguiente:


• mantengamos nuestro foco en la instrucción basada en los estándares de CA

• Hacernos modelo y esperar una excelente asistencia y puntualidad

• sigamos valorando el precioso tiempo de instrucción

• enseñemos/re-enseñar el respeto por la autoridad y la propiedad

• preparémos a  todos nuestros estudiantes para el éxito de la prueba de SBA.


Nuestros Unicornios del 3ª-6ª Grado participarán en nuestra prueba anual SBAC que comienza la semana del 3ro de abril y continúa hasta junio 2do Mientras el ensayo de SBACno defineenteramente la salud de nuestra comunidad escolar, es sumamente importante que nuestros alumnos salgan bien en él. Las pruebas de SBAC proporcionan a nuestros estudiantes la oportunidad de demostrar sus conocimientos a nivel del grado en los estándares de CA. Para nuestros estudiantes de Pre-K/Kdgtn.- Gr. 2do, los profesores y estudiantes se preparan también para un buen final, tanto académica como en lo que respecta a la asistencia.

Recuerde informar a sus amigos, familiares, vecinos y conocidos…VENGAN A LA ESCUELA VINE!
