Learning Leading Innovating

Welcome to South Redford

Welcome to Vandenberg!  We offer a wide range of opportunities for innovative learning at all grade levels. Our quality education begins with a tuition-free full-time preschool program. The “Success for All” reading program in preschool through 5th grade provides reading instruction targeted to each child’s needs and has proven results for increasing reading proficiency. The innovative Next Generation Classrooms in each school provide a setting for personalized targeted instruction as well as collaborative learning. The district’s state-of-the-art technology, featuring Chromebooks, and hands-on experience with 3-D printers, maker spaces, and robotics clubs, supports our students’ opportunity for a top-notch STEM education. The Mandarin Chinese program, which begins in elementary school, and the student exchange program offer students an opportunity to experience the rich and abundant culture of the Chinese people.

Weekly Schedule & Attendance

Hello Eagle Families, We look forward to connecting with you tomorrow for the materials pick up. We have many resources for you! Elementary Week 3+ Schedule Included and attached here is the Elementary Week 3+ Schedule which will begin on Monday, September 21st. The start and end time are the same. Your child will now have access to Special area class activities. They will also have the small group times listed for Language Arts and Math. We are constantly monitoring the scheduling to support the highest quality instruction. A Note on Attendance Attendance is taken daily by classroom teachers every time your student attends live remote lessons via Zoom. If your child must be absent from live remote instruction, their teacher will initiate contact through email, Canvas, Dojo, telephone, or other communication method. Once a two-way instructional interaction is held between your child and their teacher, attendance will be marked present. Thank you, Lisa Hughes Vandenberg Elementary School 24901 Cathedral Avenue Redford, Michigan 48239 313-532-0300
