Welcome to the Vine Middle Magnet School Family!
This is an exciting time for us!
We have grown as a school family, and for the 2018-2019 school year, we will gain approximately 170 new Golden Bears. Our building will be another step further on our misson to be a true Community School. We have wonderful opportunities to engage learners, the community, and each other to continue to shape what teaching and learning can look like at Vine Middle Magnet School.
Vine Middle Magnet School: Over 55 Staff and Faculty, 500 students, countless parents, stakeholders and community members, and one vision: To Empower All Golden Bears be the Best Versions of Themselves.
How will this be accomplished? We will do this through executing our Action Plan: To Increase the Challenge, Connections and Community for Vine students. This will be a journey towards a consistent pattern of behavior that results in constant improvement and progress.
We must intentionally increase the Challenge in our classroom instruction and behavior expectations while providing Connections to students’ lives and support to reach those high expectations. We often celebrate great moments in our lives, like anniversaries, graduations, birthdays, victories, and other milestones. We will look for moments to celebrate students and staff as often as we can with intentionality and purpose in order to create an environment where all have a sense of belonging. In this way, we will bolster our Community within and without school walls.
We know it takes a village to help students succeed and perhaps our greatest goal this year is to fully engage our families, our neighborhoods, and our surrounding communities. Students achieve more when they are supported by family and community partnerships, and when they view school as a place where they feel safe, cared for and supported. You can help us in our mission by providing input to our faculty and staff and be engaged in your child’s school experience and the Vine Family. Come for parent meetings anf project nights, ask about our work, walk through our halls, plan with us and your child, and attend school events! Help us to To Empower All Golden Bears be the Best Versions of Themselves in all aspects of Vine Middle Magnet School.
I am looking forward to getting to know our new students and learning how we all can contribute to the Vine Community!
