Message from Principal Laura Vera

Vandalia Elementary, home of the Vikings, is a campus where students, staff, and families work together to improve learning for all students.

Vandalia Elementary School is a place where children are at the heart of everything we do. Staff, students, and families are dedicated to providing quality work which is engaging, results in students learning meaningful content, and challenges every student to learn more. The staff focuses their energies on the school’s vision and ensuring that our children develop the self-esteem and positive character needed to participate fully in our community of learners.

Our teachers and staff have tremendous passion for the students at Vandalia. That's evident based on the positive relationships that we have established with our community. Parents are our partners. We treasure all the ways families contribute to the success of our students: helping with homework, assisting teachers, working with the PTO and other school committees, communicating with their child’s teacher, and sending their children to school prepared and excited to learn!

I am very pleased to serve students, families, and staff. I look forward to continued teamwork with the Vandalia learning community as we strive to increase learning and achievement for all.
