Principal's Corner

VPS Principal

"I would like to welcome you back for the 2016-2017 school year. I hope your summer has gone well and you are excited for another great school year at Vilonia Primary School. I feel extremely fortunate to be working with such an exceptional group of students, families, and staff members.

I anticipate an exciting year as we collectively strive to foster a culture of learning as we engage in the educational process together. It is our vision and mission as a collaborative community, to provide an engaging, challenging, safe and respectful environment to passionately educate the whole child to become a successful, lifelong learner.

The elementary years are critical times of development for students and families alike, and I look forward to working with all of you to make this year successful. I am a lifelong educator who brings a firm commitment to students and families as well as a love of learning and problem solving.

The staff is committed to working with students and their families as a team. The rigorous curriculum is directly aligned to the Common Core State Standards. Our school provides both enrichment and intervention supports to help students reach their fullest potential. We pride ourselves in knowing each child by name and need.

Research shows that parental involvement in a child’s education develops higher levels of academic achievement, positive attitudes, maturity and responsibility. I encourage you to take part in our school as much as possible by joining our PTO and P.I.T.C.R.E.W. volunteer programs. You can also join us on Facebook at Vilonia Primary School PTO and Vilonia Primary School P.I.T.C.R.E.W. to stay informed and up to date on our activities and events.

The staff and I look forward to another exciting and challenging year, filled with many opportunities for learning and growing!"
