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 June Message


As we conclude another academic year here at Vine Street School, I want to thank our entire school community – our Vine Important Parents (VIPs), our Teachers, our Staff, our Volunteers, our Community Partners, and our Students for making this year so very special.




As we begin to make plans for a wonderful and well-deserved Summer of rest, family, friends, and fun, let us also be prepared to return to school and to work in August fully rested, prepared, and ready to demonstrate our commitment and ability to educate all of our children to their fullest potential.  Together, we will educate your whole child, academically, socially, and emotionally, and we will continue to work hard and develop innovative ways to meet the unique needs of each one of our students, as well as support your efforts as Vine Important Parents and Partners (VIPPs).




Lastly, I want to encourage all Parents and Families to remain highly engaged in their child’s learning and development during the Summer!  Each day presents all of us with opportunities to ask questions of our children about their day and about their goals and dreams.  Your support for, extraordinary commitment to, and high expectations of all of our students will truly enhance their school experience and pave the way for a successful future! 




Have a Wonderful Summer and remember to tell family, friends, neighbors, and acquaintances…






Dr. Kurt S. Lowry, Principal

Al concluir otro año académico aquí en Vine Street School, quiero agradecer a toda nuestra comunidad escolar - nuestros Padres Importantes (VIPs), nuestros maestros, nuestros voluntarios, nuestros colaboradores en la Comunidad, y a nuestros estudiantes por  haber hecho este año tan especial.

A medida que empezamos a hacer planes para un maravilloso y merecido descanso de verano, la familia, los amigos y la diversión, también nosotros debemos estar dispuestos a volver a la escuela y a trabajar en agosto completamente descansado, preparada y dispuestos a demostrar nuestro compromiso y capacidad para educar a todos nuestros niños a su máximo potencial.

Por último, quiero animar a todos los padres y a las familias que siguen siendo altamente comprometidos en el aprendizaje de sus hijos y el desarrollo durante el verano! Cada día nos ofrecen oportunidades de hacer preguntas a nuestros hijos acerca de su día y acerca de sus metas y sueños.
