Principal's Message

My name is James Luttrell.  I have been married to my wonderful wife, Shayna Luttrell, for over 12 years.  We are the proud parents of three fantastic boys, Jackson, Nickson, and Jameson.  This is my first year serving the Vine Grove learning community as the Principal of Vine Grove Elementary School.     


Vine Grove Elementary School has established a reputation as the Top Elementary School in the area.  Our Reading and Math scores consistently rank as the best in this region of the State of Kentucky on an annual basis.  We have established a very ambitious goal of preparing all of of our students for an ever changing job market.


Although we are proud of our academic achievements and will continue to strive for excellence, our ultimate goal at VGES is to help our students to become successful.  We feel that the best way to prepare our students is by making learning fun and exciting. Our classrooms are student centered with teachers empowering students to take ownership in their learning.  Students are challenged to think, to create, and to explore through engaging activities, rigorous lessons, and innovative technology.


Academic success is celebrated at VGES through our Brag Tag Program.   We will continue to do "Whatever it Takes" for our students to be successful.  


The thing that I am most proud of about our fine school is the fact that we love kids.  We love getting to know all of our students and establishing positive relationships that are crucial in preparing them for success.  We look forward to establishing a partnership with parents and guardians to help us to best meet the needs of "our kids."


I am excited about the 2018-19 school-year and the wonderful achievements that we have in our future.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you ever have any questions or concerns. GO TROJANS!!!!!
