Welcome Letter from Principal

Dear West Vine Street School Families,

Welcome to the 2022 - 2023 school year! We are thrilled to welcome our students and staff back to school. We hope that you were able to relax and make special memories with your friends and families. Now it is time to look forward to a wonderful new school year as we are “Anchored in Achievement” at West Vine Street School!

 Our incredible staff of educators have been in school throughout the summer to prepare classrooms for the new school year. We are grateful to our amazing custodial staff as they worked all summer getting our school in pristine shape. Our secretarial staff, Mrs. Demetra Sutera and Mrs. Meredith Vernott, are working hard to ensure a smooth start for staff, students, and families. 

West Vine Street School is such a special place to learn and grow. We are proud of our beautiful school and have high expectations for each and every student.  Our students are kind, compassionate, and eager to learn.  Together with our dedicated staff, we strive to make connections with students to help them feel valued, accepted, and safe. Our West Vine motto of “Forward Thinking, Fostering Passions, Developing Responsible Citizens, and Preparing for Tomorrow’s Opportunities” will continue to guide our mission to provide a rigorous and joyful inclusive school environment. Our overarching goal is to encourage active student engagement to foster a lifetime love for learning.

 We are excited to return to our normal school operations this year. We are aware that we will need to continue to address unfinished learning by using an acceleration model to fill in gaps in knowledge. Instruction will be focused on specialized skills and content needed to learn grade level materials while providing the appropriate tools needed to grasp concepts. 

Partnering with families is crucial to promote a healthy transition to school both socially and emotionally.   We recognize that students may be feeling anxious with the start of a new school year and we will continue to place a strong emphasis on social emotional learning while focusing on building classroom community.  We encourage families to stay connected and informed by following our district website and announcements sent through Parent Square.
