    Dear Parents/Guardians:

    Due to the safety protocols and recommendations put into place, our principals and district personnel have recently discussed options for the students for Halloween.  We will not be having parties, but we will plan for the students to have a day to enjoy the season.

    *Students are permitted to wear their Halloween costume to school on Friday, October 30th

    *Students are not allowed to have weapon look-a-like items such as guns, sword, and knives.

    *Inflatable costumes are not permitted as they cannot be worn on the bus and they are not feasible in the classroom setting. 

    *No face painting because of masking.

    Our PTO will be providing an individually wrapped snack and juice.

    Thank you!

     

    Ms. Leslie Henry

Welcome to Vinton Elementary!

A new school year brings many opportunities, changes and challenges, but nonetheless, EXCITEMENT!  We are looking forward to new learning opportunities for growing and learning together as a school community!  Vinton Elementary has a student population of approximately 390 PreK-5th graders and counting!  Our teachers and classrooms are equipped with the knowledge and tools to provide a top notch education inclusive of technologies to keep up with the ever changing advancements in this area.  We have one to one Chromebook devices in grades K-5 and TeachSmart technology in PreK.  We have various online programming including Renaissance, Study Island, ALEKS, Reading Eggs and Math Seeds to name a few.  We also offer up to date curriculum resources that are aligned directly to our state standards.

Vinton Elementary has an AMAZING teaching staff that are highly trained and motivated to meet the academic and social emotional needs of each child.  Our support staff compliments to provide additional supports to our students, school and community.

We are continuing our Leader in Me initiative.  This framework helps teach 21st century leadership and life skills to students and will help create a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.  Areas of emphasis include LEADERSHIP, RESPONSIBILITY, COMMUNICATION, INITIATIVE, SELF DIRECTION, and TEAMWORK!!  We are SO excited to see our students LEAD and SUCCEED!! 

I invite you to come partner with us by joining our PTO, attending special events and volunteering in our school!  I look forward to working with you this school year.  Keep in touch and share any ideas, questions or concerns you may have.  We look forward to having you as part of our TEAM!!

Respectfully,
