Principal's Message

star.jpgThis semester we are implementing Student-led conferences where students take the lead during conferences and take ownership of their learning.  We look forward to collaborating with all families during this time.  Please make every effort to meet with your child's teacher.  Family support is the key to success.  The month of March begins ELPAC testing which takes place of CELDT testing. 

     2018 holds many aspirations that we can only achieve with your continued support.   Thank you for being such an important part of our success at Vernon City Elementary.  We are proud to be second in English Language Arts in SBAC data in comparison to neighboring schools as well as third in Math in comparison to neighboring schools.  Our Transitional Kindergarten – Second grade students will continue to take part of Literacy Academies which has supported academic growth for students. Our staff is committed to academic success for all students.  This is achieved with your support.  Please communicate with teachers if you have any concerns or need any support.   We look forward to a great year. 


     I encourage all families to become active volunteers at our school site.  You must complete the on-line application at https://volunteerapp.lausd.net.  Mrs. Mora, our Community Representative,  is available to support the application process.

It is imperative that students attend school everyday.  When students are absent they miss out on instruction and we miss them.  However, if your child is sick, please keep them home and send a note with them when they return to school.

Student led conferences will be held beginning Monday, February 26th - Friday, March 2nd.  Students will lead conferences and take ownership of their learning.  We look forward to all families taking part in student led conferences.  Please ensure that you communicate with your child's teacher to provide a time that is convenient to meet.  Dismissal all week is at 1:50 p.m. except for Tuesday, dismissal is at 1:28 p.m.


Parent Portal
The Parent Portal is an online system that will provide families with detailed student information.  Our goal is to ensure all families have access to the portal before the end of May.  Please stop by the office for information.  The computer lab will be open during conferences to support parents with logging onto the system.  Families will need an email to register.  Here is the link to begin the registration process.  http://passportapp.lausd.net/parentaccess/


Read Across America Week
This week we will celebrate Read Across America by pairing it with Spirit Week.  On Friday, March 2nd all classes will participate in activities in the auditorium.  Our wonderful community representative, Mrs. Mora along with several amazing volunteers will help with all activities.  We wouldn't have such great opportunities without the support of our parents.  Thank you parent volunteers!
