Principal's Message



 Happy New Year! I hope your family enjoyed Winter break. We look forward to achieving the goals set forth for 2019! 2019 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 a uniform implementation school, please ensure that students are in uniform daily.  It supports a focus on engaging in opportunities to expand their knowledge base for future college and career readiness and not on what they are wearing.  We have an amazing staff who are committed to providing students with optimal experiences.    

We will continue to work collaboratively with all families for continued success.
