As principal of Francis Vigo Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone to the 2017-18 school year. It is exciting to have students back in the halls and classrooms filling the school with energy and enthusiasm for learning and to be part of a school community where parents, teachers, and students work together to support the academic and social growth of our students.
The mission of the VCSC is Educational Excellence Everyday. The Vigo School staff strives daily to provide students every opportunity for academic growth through rigorous instruction supported by technology. It is our goal that students acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to becomelife-long learners and build a strong foundation for their future success at Clark Middle School and Lincoln High School.
Vigo is a Title I school and receives additional funding for teachers and staff who make the thirty minute daily Response to Instruction (RTI) time possible. The faculty also includes special education teachers, a school nurse and school social worker to further meet the needs of students and families.
Vigo School is home to the VCSC preschool. This class is available to four year old students preparing to attend Kindergarten the following year. Further information about the VCSC preschool can be found on this site.
We hope that you will find our website informative. To keep up with school news, announcements, and events, please watch for our monthly newsletter that is sent home with the students and our Vigo Facebook page.
We look forward to working with our Vigo students and families this year. You are always welcome to call the school office if you are in need of further information or would like to schedule a visit to our school.
