Principal's Welcome

Principal's Welcome

Welcome Back to School Vandenberg Families:

We are so excited to have students back in our building filling it with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is important to us to have every child feel welcomed, connected and a part of the Vandenberg Family!


Our learning community at Vandenberg Elementary agree to live by these expectations:  







We believe that any action or behavior falls under one of these priority expectations


Together, teachers, students and parents/guardians make a strong Vandenberg family!


Please help us by discussing these expectations with your student.


We also believe in having high expectations for students and ourselves, accountability, building relationships, modeling expectations and having a positive mindset. We expect students to attend school regularly, arrive on time, try their best, and respect the rights of others. Vandenberg teachers are dedicated to making this school year a successful one for you.


We value our students and families and look forward to working together in the upcoming year!

Yours in Education,


Lezlie Larsen
