School Snippets (new 1/16)

Bear Byte from Mrs. Ebert:

I have been thinking a lot about our role as parents and educators as we help our children grow. Something that resonates with me is the importance of helping our children to become independent. For our younger students this can include allowing them to open the car door on their own, buckle their car seat, load their backpack at home, and be responsible for their homework folder. Older students can help with chores, provide input on outside activities, help manage their time to complete homework, and be responsible for packing their backpacks and remembering them on a daily basis. All students should learn to care for their jackets and bring them home and be able to hang up their own backpacks at school. I know as a parent we often want to protect our children and sometimes to save time may do things for them that they could do on their own. Let’s all strive to help our children become more self-sufficient and independent in 2018

The 5th graders are off to “Science Camp” at Camp Koinonia!

Our students are enjoying educational field trips such as Ano Nuevo and the Santa Cruz Natural History Museum.

Teachers are participating in professional development, “Accessing the Language of Math using ELD Standards”.

All of 2nd grade will be participating in Ice Day on January 24th.

Our new benches are built, the old benches have been refreshed and repainted, and our shade/rain structures are well on their way to being installed.

Happy New Year!  SVMS is happy to announce the opening of our new school office.  The beautiful, new building is on the curve of the roundabout. It is easily accessible to parents, students, staff and community members.  We are grateful for all the hard work it took to make this happen! 


SVMS is excited for upcoming Talent Show.  More than 20 acts will perform on Friday, January 26th at 6:00 pm at the SVHS Student Union.  With the expert direction of Alexie Neall and Paul Sampson, the SVMS students are looking forward to a great show!
