Dear Van Hise Families,

Mary Seidl

Welcome to Van Hise Elementary! Our school community works to create an environment where all families and students experience a sense of belonging and fully participate in the life of the school. As partners, staff and families work together to ensure that all students are academically engaged in rigorous learning and support a shared understanding of how students learn. As a result, children excel at Van Hise in both math and reading across all grades. Teachers and staff are organized into highly effective teams with shared ownership for each and every one of our students. At Van Hise our warm, inviting culture promotes positive relationships for children, families, staff and community members. Our students and their families are engaged, happy and surrounded by excellent, caring educators. 
We look forward to your joining our wonderful school community. We invite you to visit often and volunteer at VHE. The partnerships that we form between students, families, community members, and staff provide a foundation for learning, engagement, and relationships to thrive. We hope to see you around at Van Hise Elementary – where children come first!
