Message from the Principal

Welcome from JV  

Welcome to Veterans Memorial Elementary School where we are proud to be a Lighthouse Leader in Me school! With this emphasis on leadership, students are provided opportunities to excel in classroom, across campus, and in our community. Our faculty is committed to our school vision: “Develop tomorrow’s leaders today”! We are dedicated to creating and maintaining a learning community committed to high quality teaching and learning in order to support the success of every student, teacher, and staff member in reaching high standards of performance. Here at VME we refer to this leadership culture as “Unleashing Greatness”. Each day, our teachers and staff strive for a focus on student engagement, rigor in the classroom, and innovative learning. Our families also play a pivotal role in the success of our students and there are many ways to be involved in our school. Please consider joining our SAC (School Advisory Council) or PTO (Parent Teacher Organization), both which meet monthly. The Veterans Memorial PTO continues to organize and support the traditions that make VME such a special place by organizing events like The Growing Connection, Fall Fest, Thanksgiving Feast, Mother/Son and Father/Daughter Events, all which help foster our school’s Patriots Pride. Veterans Memorial Elementary School has been recognized as a Gold Level Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) School, a Florida Power Library, and a Blue Zones School. If you are interested in seeing the greatness happening at VME, follow us on Twitter at @VMEPatriots, “like” Veterans Memorial Elementary School on Facebook, and visit our school website. It is my honor and privilege to be the principal of such an amazing school. We are looking forward to a fabulous school year of “Unleashing Greatness”!
