Principal's Message

Dear Vista Families,

 

On behalf of the Vista Fundamental Staff, we would like to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year! Our school motto, “Together Everyone Achieves More” captures the tradition of collaboration that exists within our school community. We support an environment of collaboration between students, families, staff, and the community. Our collective experience and resources provide a strong framework upon which to enhance the learning of all students. We look to continually develop these relationships while providing opportunities to create new partnerships within the community.  

Vista Fundamental School is dedicated to academic excellence within a structured learning environment that maintains a high level of commitment by students, parents, and staff. This ongoing partnership between home and school is a critical attribute of the fundamental philosophy. A consistent educational program exists within a nurturing and challenging atmosphere. Emphasis is placed on the achievement of the California Academic Standards as well as the values of accountability, punctuality, diligence, personal responsibility, respect for authority, courtesy and teamwork.

In order to best prepare our students for future educational experiences and the careers of tomorrow, Vista’s staff will continue integrating a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) into the curriculum. Collectively, we will emphasize and enhance our STEM focus while supporting the continued integration of technology within the instructional setting. Each classroom is equipped with a Smartboard as well as student computers. Students also have access to a computer lab, Chromebook carts each equipped to support a full class of students, and a third grade classroom with a class set of IPads. We are currently developing our STEM lab and Makerspace to provide learning opportunities for our students to support the STEM focus areas while providing students with opportunities to develop unique and innovative products. We seek out opportunities to partner with organizations and businesses to enhance our STEM and Makerspace programs.

Vista Fundamental believes in the importance of personal responsibility. We provide a safe environment for students to engage in a variety of learning environments. In order for our students to effectively maximize their instructional time, we ask for you to respect the procedures in place to maintain the safety of all students and staff on campus. Our student handbook outlines important information regarding the specific expectations and protocols for students. Please refer to the handbook if you have any questions or concerns.

The strong traditions of Vista Fundamental allow for students to develop strong academic skills while exploring the new possibilities that reside within their own potential. We look forward to an exciting year of learning and exploration!

 

Sincerely,

 

Mrs. Julie Ellis
