    Due to some nationwide shortages while trying to obtain bulk orders for our school breakfast and lunch program, menus may be altered or a lesser variety in our day to day menu.  If your child is very selective with their food choices or have particular food allergies, it may be wise to pack your child's lunch in the event menu items are impacted.  Complete meals will be served; however, our daily menu may ever be changing until shortages are no longer an issue.

A new school year brings many opportunities, changes and challenges, but nonetheless, EXCITEMENT!  We are looking forward to new learning opportunities to grow and learn 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 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!!
