Dear Vine Hill School Families:
I welcome all of you to a new school year at Vine Hill School! I am so honored to be your new principal and I am confident this will be a fabulous year for all. The partnership between parents/guardians and the Vine Hill School community is well known throughout the county and I know it is a great contribution to the success of our school. I look forward to getting to know all of you and your children. I would also like to welcome to the Vine Hill School community the following staff members: Maria Gauthier, office clerk, Mackenzie Keller, library, Melissa Stark, computer lab, and Kelly Shulman 1st grade teacher.
This summer our maintenance department has been working very hard. The playground areas and the area behind the classrooms have been regrated and repaved. This will help keep our school "puddle free" when it rains. You will notice the front office has been redesigned so that we now have a private area that will be used by the district nurse when she visits. The City of Scotts Valley is in the process of putting in sidewalks along Vine Hill School Road and Tabor Drive. We anticipate the project to be completed by November. This will greatly improve safety for our students who walk to school.
We are looking for parents who are interested in being a part of our School Site Council. The council is made up of 6 parents of Vine Hill students or members of the community who do not work at the school. If interested please contact Julie Ebert at email@example.com.
Our monthly online newsletter contains of important information and we encourage you to read it. We will continue our Friday morning flag ceremony and our kindness philosophy, assemblies, and program. Make sure to mark your calendar for our 1st PTA meeting of the year from 6:30-8pm on September 16th in the teachers' lounge. Our Back to School Night is September 4th at 6: 15pm. I look forward to seeing everyone there!
We are committed to excellence at Vine Hill School and I look forward to working with you and your child.
Vine Hill School Principal
