Vinci Park School provides a safe and caring environment where everyone enjoys and celebrates childhood and respects diverse values, talents and ethnicity. We promote a variety of experiences that nurture social, emotional, intellectual and academic growth, which contributes to the development of independent, cooperative and responsible citizens with high self-esteem and a life-long zest for learning.

Joining the PTA is a great way to support your school.
PTA membership shows your children that you care about their education.
Your membership helps support valuable enrichment and programs that our school otherwise could not afford.
Volunteering at Vinci, my first year as Food Committee Coordinator for Family Fun Night and last year’s Volunteer Coordinator for the Board, has given me an opportunity to give back to our dedicated teachers and staff and also help bring in much needed funds to help with the many events and educational materials our Vinci students and educators need and were able to partake in throughout the school year. It’s also helped me grow as a person and allowed me to forge new relationships with some of the staff and parent volunteers. I encourage every parent to volunteer when you can and show our students and staff that we support their growth and appreciate their hard work! School is cool and so is being a PTA volunteer!
