Principal's Message

 Good Afternoon Vintage Families,

Vintage Parkway Elementary School is a grade K-5 school built and opened in 1992. It is nestled in a picturesque setting overlooking the Delta. Vintage Parkway Elementary School is proud to be home of the Dolphins. We strive for educational excellence and are committed to making each of our students successful.

We celebrate our students’ accomplishments. We offer an Early Literacy Program, Title I Program, before-and after-school intervention classes to assist our students in reaching academic excellence, as well as adult education classes in English, parenting and nutrition.

Vintage Parkway has approximately 540 students and 23 teachers. The facility has 27 classrooms; a library with a computer lab; a support services building; a multi-use room, complete with stage, theatrical lighting and an upgraded sound system; various sports facilities; and special education classrooms.

We have been utilizing technology in the Kindergarten through 5th classrooms via Google Classroom and the use of Chromebooks and Kindle Fires. In addition, our students in grades 3-5 attend weekly technology classes to learn typing skills, word processing and many other educational uses. We will continue to integrate technology into the classrooms in the next few years.

Throughout the school year, we celebrate with special days such as Literature Day, Harvest Carnival, Winter Wonderland, Spirit Days, Multi-Cultural Walk, and Family Day. We have a Student Leadership Club with fourth- and fifth-grade students who provide school-spirit activities and service to the school and community. We also use the Conflict Management Program. We have selected 4th and 5th graders who have been trained to facilitate small student conflicts. Our school has after-school interventions in the areas of math, computer science, social emotional learning, language arts, homework and reading assistance.

Thank you for your continued home/ school partnership.

Principal, Vintage Parkway

 

“Every Child deserves a Champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best they can possibly be”.                              Vintage Teacher of the Year

She instills values of respect, responsibility and kindness with all of her students. Miss Kelly believes in inclusive practices and utilizes various learning strategies such as visual, auditory and kinesthetic supports to ensure all students access the lessons and curriculum. Katherine is always looking for ways to expand her learning by joining Book Clubs and implementing new methods to increase student engagement and learning. She is part of a collaborative grade level team, she is a Mind Up lead, teaches at our family engagement events, is on the Read Across America committee, attends PTA events, and PTA Board meetings as our teacher representative. We are honored to have Katherine Kelly as our Vintage Parkway Teacher of the Year.
