Welcome to Vine Hill Elementary School. In our student's quest for personal growth and development, social responsibility, knowledge, and life long learning skills, Vine Hill School strives to promote: development of self-esteem and integrity, respect for the environment, appreciation for the world's interrelated cultures, involvement in a rapidly changing and culturally diverse society.
I am so surprised by how fast time passes here at Vine Hill. I can't believe it is already the end of 2014. I want to wish all of you a Happy Holiday season. Enjoy the time with your children over the winter break. I look forward to seeing you when school begins again on January 5th.
Here are some items of interest I would like to share with you. The teachers and I participated in some advanced Writer's and Reader's Workshop training this month. We learned many teaching strategies that will help us as we continue to implement Common Core.
Ms. Johnson and Mr. Andrews treated us to a music performance at our Kindness Assembly. The children did a wonderful job and enjoyed receiving their kindness certificates. I am so impressed with our Vine Hill Bears and their commitment to be kind and respectful to all.
Michelle Stewart, our esteemed Director of Curriculum and Assessment sent me the following information to share with you. Please save this date: 1/22/2015 at Scotts Valley High School at 6:30 pm. David Foster from the Silicon Valley Math Institute will be with us to present the newest information for teaching the Common Core State Standards in the area of Math. You will hear from one of the best about strategies to help your child, why the new standards are so important, and what you can expect in the future. Watch for a flyer in January!
Happy Holidays from all of us to all of you,
