Vado Elementary

 Vision Statement

Our vision of Vado Elementary is a place of learning in which children receive the most effective differentiated instruction to meet the divers individual needs. The Dual Language Program will preserve and foster bi-literacy and our students' biculturalism. Our students make gains in literacy, language and mathematics assessments. 


Mission Statement

The students, parents and staff at Vado Elementary are committed to provide a safe and inspiring environment that is conductive to academic and social success. Student achievement will be obtained by attending school every day and being held accountable for their own learning. Parents will be encouraged and empowered to support their children by demonstrating active participation. The school will employ highly qualified educators to implement a curriculum that supports best practices which will benefit our students through scientific research based assessments, common core standards and data analysis of district and statewide assessments.

Dismissal Procedures

To ensure a safe dismissal we ask for parents to advice office staff of any transportation changes before 2:00 pm, therefore providing staff ample time to notify teachers of the change. For the safety of your child we will not allow students to  get off/on the bus when no verification has been made by the office staff.
