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 Lowry's HOLIDAY Message...



On behalf of our Staff, I want to wish the entire Vine Street School Community a very happy holiday season!  I hope this season brings good health and good cheer as our first semester of our school year concludes and as we prepare to spend time with family and friends. 


December, as you know, promises to be a brief yet bustling month of teaching, learning, and other important events, including our December Morning Assembly, “Coffee Talk!/Cafecito!”, Parent workshops, Attendance Incentive and Recognition, ELAC and SSC Meetings, our annual Holiday Photos Fundraiser, and our Annual Winter Holiday Program Rehearsals and Parent Performances!    


We all return to school on Monday, January 7th, 2019, to begin our second semester as we continue working diligently toward the achievement of our goals:


1.     100% GRADUATION




3.     100% ATTENDANCE






Let us savor the opportunities afforded to us every day to make a positive difference in our students’ lives and let us enjoy a wonderful Holiday Season. 


This holiday Season, let us rejoice in our good fortune and be grateful for all that we have!                                                          

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