Principal's Message

 Good Afternoon Vintage Families,

It is hard to believe we are in the month of April. I can’t think of a better way to be welcomed back from Spring Back, than the smiles that our students have shared with us this week. We have had a wonderful week back. Classrooms have been filled with lots of learning and activities.

Our 3rd - 5th grades will begin the Smarter Balance testing on April 15th and end the week of May 6th. The tests will be in the areas of Language Arts and Math. Fifth graders will also take the Science test. Results of the testing will be shared with parents. Your child’s teacher will let inform parents which specific 4 days your student will be testing. Please try to have students here on time and schedule appointments on other days if possible.

There is no school on Friday, April 19th or Monday, April 22nd.

Our next Spirit Day is Friday, April 26th, Tie- Dye is our theme.

We are happy to welcome Mrs. Terri Bryson to the Vintage team as our new Assistant Principal.  She will be supporting both Vintage and Oakley Elementary.  Mrs. Fruit will continue to support families in her new district position.

We appreciate your help in getting your child to school each day and on time.

Thank you for your continued home/ school partnership.

Erin Roberts

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  

Katherine Kelly is that Champion. She build relationships with students and their families in a positive way. Her first graders adore her and work hard in her classroom each day. 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.
