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.
Dear Vine Hill Families,
I want to thank all the families who filled out the School Survey this year. The School Site Council and I have been closely analyzing the survey results. I will be featuring responses to the survey in the next few newsletters. This month I want to respond to concerns about the playground and issues around how students treat each other.
We are working as a staff to fine tune our school wide message and strategies about how we all treat each other. Three staff members attended a training in September called Capturing Kids Hearts and brought back information to share with us. On October 31st all teachers in the district participated in a training called Building Champions. Both Capturing Kids Hearts and Building Champions have helped us to implement new strategies that foster a sense of kindness and help our students problem solve and treat each other respectfully.
I am pleased to announce that we will be hiring a play coach thanks to our PTA. This person will provide structure during lunch recess that will help our students to learn how to cooperatively play organized games.
I am excited to be attending my first Vine Hill Auction and I look forward to seeing many of you there. The auction is such an important and fun event for Vine Hill parents and staff. There are so many programs and support here at Vine Hill because of our PTA's financial assistance and the parents who support it.
