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 Thanksgiving Message

 

During this Thanksgiving season, let us give thanks for our health, our families, our friends, and our being fortunate enough to be able to work with and positively impact future generations of students.  In good health, we are able to put forward our best effort every day as students and as educators. 

 

With a strong, supportive, and understanding family, we are able to remain focused on and hopeful of achieving our personal and professional goals, even during the toughest of days.  With the support and encouragement from our friends and colleagues, we are able to grow confident in and appreciate the important role each one of us serves in our school on behalf of our students. 

 

From Principal to Students, Parents to Teachers, and Community Partners to Staff, each one of us is an important part of our school community.  This Thanksgiving, let’s continue to focus on and reflect on what we can all do together to build our school into a model of urban excellence, health, family unity, collegiality, and friendship. 

 

This Thanksgiving Season, we give thanks for all that we have and we ask ourselves, “Who’s got it better than us?”  NOBODY!”

 

 

COME TO VINE STREET SCHOOL!
