Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Violette Elementary School! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring:

  • On time daily school attendance to make the most of the day’s learning experience
  • 30 minutes of daily reading outside of school to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
  • Daily conversations with your child about school experiences 
  • Frequent communication with your child's educational team 
  • Celebrations of your child's successes at school

If you have any questions about the supports available for children and families at Violette, please attend our weekly parent get togethers at 8:15 AM every Thursday or reach out to me, your child's teacher, or our School Community Liaisons for more information. 

The wonderful Violette staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. We thank you for sharing your child with us.

Please remember to activate your ParentSquare account and check it regularly to receive updates and messages from the district, the school, and your child's teacher. You can also visit our school Facebook page or the Violette Elementary PTA Facebook page. 

I look forward to working with you to make this a great year for you and your family. It is my great honor to serve as your child’s principal and I look forward to working with all of you throughout the year!


Sarah Van Dam, Principal
