Message from the Principal

Mrs. Tamika Jackson



It is with great anticipation and joy that I welcome you back for another wonderful school year at Vollentine Optional Elementary School. I look forward to and commit myself to giving the very best I have for this phenomenal school community. I continue to feel extremely blessed to have the privilege of working alongside knowledgeable and supportive parents, staff, and faculty who hold high expectations and continue to raise the bar for students and themselves. I continually challenge myself as well to grow and place high expectations on students both academically and socially. I am confident that our school year will be a phenomenal one as our students grow in their knowledge in all academic areas. I look so forward to being a small part of all of your children’s lives. Like the desires I hold for my own children, I want the very best for each of your children. Please do not hesitate to share your thoughts regarding your child’s school success. Your concerns, ideas, and comments are appreciated and respected. Communication is vital to their success and to our overall growth and sense of community here at VOES.

As always, Vollentine Optional Elementary school is a place where hope transforms into actions.
