Assistant Principal's Message

  • Dear Students and Families,

    I am so excited to be at Virginia Avenue Charlotte DeHart Elementary School this year! The year has
    started with so much enthusiasm and joy that makes me so happy to be a part of this school and
    community.
    VACDES is such a special place with loving faculty, staff, and families. We want to make sure all of our
    students work hard and feel welcomed and cared about here. I look forward to working with the
    families this school year as our students become “Local Leaders Today, Global Leaders Tomorrow”.

    Dr. Lisa Pluska
    Assistant Principal
