The Mission of Mt. Vernon Elementary is to promote highest student achievement through mutual respect, responsibility and partnerships within a safe learning environment in order to enable students to achieve their goals and become responsible productive citizens.
I am extremely proud to be a part of this very special neighborhood school that is rich in history and tradition. My aim and focus as principal continues to center on highest student achievement for all students as we integrate technology and best practices in every classroom to reach our academic goals. Our school exemplifies a strong sense of community and fosters a warm, family atmosphere.

Student recognition plays an important role as we celebrate achievements of our school family. Each grading period Honor Roll and Principal's List students participate in a recognition ceremony. Other recognition programs celebrate the successes of students who are most improved and also those with monthly perfect attendance. Students exhibiting the Commitment to Character traits of honesty, respect, responsibility and motivation are acknowledged on the school's TV news. It is truly an honor to serve as principal at this great school.�
