This Week at Vine




To keep our students safe please remember:

       1)   Do not stop until you have pulled up as far as you can.

       2)   Students need to exit the vehicle from the passenger's side.

       3)   Students can walk on the sidewalk and enter the main gate or              the kindergarten gate.

       4)   Do not block school buses. 


If you need to get out of the car to help your child(ren), please park rather than enter the "drop off" zone.  


Kennedy Center/Stephen Sondheim Inspirational Teacher Awards

In many people's lives there is at least one teacher who inspired them, and helped them become who they are today. In our early years, when we are still being formed, they often see in us more than we see in ourselves, more than our families see and, as a result, help us to evolve into who we ultimately become. These inspirational people are not often recognized for the life changing role they have played. These are the teachers who define us, teachers who widen our horizons and encourage us to explore. These teachers are touchstones to paths of achieving more than we might have otherwise accomplished, in directions we might not have gone. To celebrate the significant role of teachers in society, The Kennedy Center/Stephen Sondheim Inspirational Teacher Awards will spotlight some of the country’s most inspirational teachers and recognize them for their contributions.

A message from Dr. Aguilar-Torres

Dear Vine Families,

We have just completed the first trimester. Hopefully, you were able to attend parent/teacher conferences the week of November 2nd. If you didn’t, please contact your child’s teacher to arrange a meeting. 

So far, we have had an EXCELLENT year. We are continuing to implement a rigorous cross-curricular writing program and rigorous task design strategies in all of our classrooms.  Our focus this year will be to incorporate technology as a tool when learning.

I along with every member of the Vine staff is committed to ensuring that we provide the best possible education for your child so that someday they can go off to college. As many of you know, this is not something you can just wake up one day and decide to do. It takes years of preparation to be able to compete academically at the college level and it starts here in elementary school. Our country has hundreds of colleges and universities where our Vine students could thrive and contribute their ideas someday. Students will be allowed to show their college pride by wearing a t-shirt or jersey from any college or university on Wednesdays (only).  NO PROFESSIONAL SPORTS JERSEYS. 

For those of you who are lucky enough to be able to volunteer in our classrooms, we would love to have you. Make sure you come by the office to pick up the District Volunteer form. I will sign it and then Nancy will instruct you as to where to go next. Thank you in advance for all of your help. If you have already submitted this paperwork in the past, then you can start volunteering immediately.

Our students are working hard to prepare for the end of the year SBAC test. Continue to encourage them to read every night. 

Enjoy your Thanksgiving week break (November 23 – 27, 2015).

Thank you,

Dr. Aguilar-Torres
