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 October Message


Summer has once again faded into Fall. As we enter this season of the harvest, let us reflect on our many achievements these past seven weeks:


Our teachers have worked very hard to implement our new English Language Arts (ELA) program; our school received a Perfect score on our recent textbook audit; our Kindergarten,

4th, and 5th Grade Unicorns are learning how to write computer software code with 9 DOTS “getCoding!”; we welcomed over forty (40+) parents at our first “Coffee Talk/Cafecito!” last month and we welcomed a large turnout at our Back-To-School Night and Scholastic Book Fair! Most students are wearing school uniforms! More parents are supporting our “Vine Victory Laps!” program. We recently recognized our Students-of-the-Month, Perfect Attendance winners, and ”Vine Victory Laps!” champions! We elected our new English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) and we will soon elect our (School Site Council) (SSC) and Local School Leadership Council (LSLC). We recently revised our Safe School Plan (SSP) and we will soon open two new “Mad Science!” laboratories just in time for Halloween and just in time for the return of Dr. Frankenstein..!


Together, we continue to build our school into a model of high academic achievement and social justice. Remember to tell friends, family members, neighbors, and acquaintances…



Dr. Kurt S. Lowry, Principal
