Vista celebrated Arbor Day with Five new trees! Thanks to PG& E, Star Nursery and Vista Leadership we planted five trees on our playground. Students decorated rocks to "plant" with our new trees, created a thank you banner and read an Arbor Day poem. Students and staff can now enjoy a shady area on our field.
Vista students learned bike and pedestrian safety in our community presented by the Safe Routes to School program. Kindergarten students practiced on an obstacle course on how to stay safe by paying attention to traffic around us and our surroundings.
Red Ribbon Week was designed to create an awareness concerning the problems related to the use of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs. Red Ribbon week started in 1985 as a means of honoring DEA agent Enriquie Camarena, who lost his life in the line of duty. Today, Red Ribbon Week is a time for school and communities across the nation to come together in the fight against drugs. At Vista we will be doing activities that focus on the many aspects of Health and Safety. We would like to have parents from each class bring in red items (about 25) one day during the week to remind their class of the importance of staying healthy and safe through a drug free life. The red items can be anything from apples to pencils. Examples: Red licorice, erasers, apple slices, fruit roll ups, pencils, ribbons, fruit snacks, popsicles, red juice boxes…
Vista Student Showcase night was a success, over 200 parents and students attended this parent night to view their child's projects and progress. Girl and Boy scout representatives were on hand for sign-ups and Dance Trax was available for information. Thank you to all for the support of our neighborhood school.
Rez Life helped Vista learn about Mohave song and dance on Indigenous People Day. Students were completely silent as they listened to the melodic rhythm of the singing voices and the shaking of the gourds.
