Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!

Michele Rodriguez, Principal

Michele Rodriguez

I’m so excited to meet all of you and begin this new school year as your principal. I'm proud to say that I am a Jeffco graduate and I have been fortunate to have spent the majority of my career as an educator right here in the Arvada community. I served as a teacher, curriculum specialist, assistant principal and now a principal. Working as an educator and a lead learner has always brought me such joy and I look forward to each and everyday when I can spend it with all of you.

In addition to being an educator, I’m also a mom of two boys. Family and relationships are at the heart of how I lead. I know that Vanderhoof is a community that believes in strong relationships as well and I want to continue that partnership as your principal.

This is our 50th year as a school and we have so many things to reflect on and celebrate. Vanderhoof is full of rich traditions and has an amazing legacy of always being a school that supports students academic and social emotional needs. I look forward to continuing this legacy by serving in this role. Please feel free to stop in anytime to talk.

P.S., I would like to express our sincere gratitude to the PTA for the amazing gift of renovating the staff lounge. What an incredible way to welcome our staff back to the school year.
