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.

Educating the Children of Hollywood for Over 100 years!

Principal's Message

Principal Lowry's MAY Message...


Spring has arrived and is in full bloom!  The last full month of our academic year is upon us and in literary terms, we have begun “writing” the ‘final chapter’ of our school year. Of course, we have much work that must be done, for learning and striving never cease.  This May promises to be productive and busy and we greatly appreciate your support and efforts, too!  Thank you.



We look forward to supporting our 3rd-6th Grade Students’ participation in our annual Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBA) Testing program that began Monday, April 29th, and continues through May 31st.  We are also proud of our 6th Grade Students who are preparing to host a fantastic Science Fair and who will participate in Ballroom Dance performances here at Vine Street School and at a District-wide competition on May 8th!   Bravo! Bravo!  Our annual Spelling Bee, International Dance Festival, ongoing 6th Grade Activities, Parent workshops, Yearbook Sales, Spring Orchestra Concert, and our daily teaching and learning bring the month of May to a festive conclusion. 



I want to encourage all parents to remain highly engaged in their child’s attendance and learning, and to ask questions of their child on a daily basis about their learning.  Your commitment and high expectations will truly make a difference in your child’s school experience and future!   I just have one question for all of us here at Vine Street School…


“Who’s got it better than us?”  NOBODY!”




- Dr. Kurt S. Lowry, Principal



Mensaje de MAYO del Director Lowry...


La primavera ha llegado y está en plena floración! El último mes completo de nuestro año académico está sobre nosotros y, en términos literarios, hemos comenzado a "escribir" el "capítulo final" de nuestro año escolar. Por supuesto, tenemos mucho trabajo que hacer, para que el aprendizaje y el esfuerzo nunca cesen. ¡Este mes de mayo promete ser productivo y ocupado y apreciamos enormemente su apoyo y sus esfuerzos también! Gracias. 




Esperamos poder apoyar la participación de nuestros estudiantes de 3er a 6to grado en nuestro programa anual de exámenes de Evaluaciones Smarter Balanced (SBA) que comenzó el lunes 29 de abril y continúa hasta el 31 de mayo. ¡También estamos orgullosos de nuestros estudiantes de sexto grado que se preparan para organizar una feria de ciencias fantástica y que participarán en las presentaciones de baile de salón aquí en la escuela Vine Street y en una competencia de todo el distrito el 8 de mayo! ¡Bravo! ¡Bravo! Nuestro festival anual de ortografía, el Festival Internacional de Danza, las actividades en curso de sexto grado, los talleres para padres, las ventas de anuarios, el concierto de la orquesta de primavera y nuestra enseñanza y aprendizaje diarios llevan al mes de mayo a una conclusión festiva. 



Quiero animar a todos los padres a que sigan participando activamente en la asistencia y el aprendizaje de sus hijos, y que hagan preguntas a sus hijos a diario sobre su aprendizaje. ¡Su compromiso y altas expectativas realmente harán una diferencia en la experiencia escolar y el futuro de su hijo! Solo tengo una pregunta para todos nosotros aquí en Vine Street School ...


"¿Quién lo tiene mejor que nosotros?" ¡NADIE!


- Dr. Kurt S. Lowry, Director
