Dear Villa Park Elementary Families,
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year. It is my honor to serve as principal of Villa Park Elementary. I look forward to continuing the collaborative work with our community, staff, and parents on our commitment to academic achievement as well as maintaining our long-standing traditions.
At VPE, we teach our students the importance of following the PAWS (Be Polite, Be Accountable, Work Hard, Be Safe) in order to maintain an optimal learning environment for every student. We will continue to prepare our students for college and career with the implementation of AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) strategies in each of our classrooms and GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) strategies in our 4th thru 6th grade classrooms.
We are proud to announce the expansion of our Robotics program and the addition of Esports and Drone Academy in our upper grades in order to increase student engagement.
With your support, VPE students will continue to excel personally and academically. I look forward to seeing all of you soon. Go Bobcats!
Martha I. Arceo
