Vedder Elementary is a special learning community where students, staff and parents are engaged in meaningful learning each day. Vedder's mission is to be a community that inspires strong character and powerful thinking. Our goal is, "How will a school wide focus on powerful thinking foster literacy, numeracy and social responsibility?"

It is hard to image that we have now completed the 2014-15 school year. What a year it has been! We have been witness to the dedication and perseverance of our students in their academics which has resulted in many new and fulfilling achievements and personal bests. We have also watched our students involve themselves in an extensive number of clubs, athletics, musical productions, and fundraising endeavours.
All of our students’ achievements were made possible by the support that they receive from members of our school community. “Thank-you” to the teachers, educational assistants, and support staff who work tirelessly to make learning at our school a top priority. “Thank-you” also to all our parents and guardians who support our students in so many ways. Whether you attend games or concerts, volunteer in a classroom, help and encourage with homework, provide morning wake-up calls or serve as a daily taxi service…we know that your efforts and encouragement have contributed to your student’s success.
At this time of year, we also need to say some goodbyes. To our grade 6 students, we send you off to Middle School by saying “thank-you”. Thank-you for making our school a better place for just having walked through the halls. We wish you all the best as you move forward. We also need to say, farewell to some of our amazing staff. Ms. Snell, Ms. Graves, Mrs. Fitzgerald, Mrs. Jackson and Mrs. Robinson, we send you off with our best and warmest wishes. Finally, we are saying farewell (for one year) to our amazing Ms. Schott and Mrs. Hugh. Although we will miss them, we know that they will have a year full of adventures.
Wishing everyone a wonderful and safe summer. We look forward to partnering with everyone in September as we continue helping our Vedder students to grow in significant ways by…inspiring strong character and powerful thinking.
