  • Friday is a Jeans day for PTO Outreach.  Students may bring in two dollars or bring in two pieces of gently worn uniform items to wear jeans and a uniform top.  This is not a Friday where students may purchase a dress down pass. The money and gently used uniform items will support our PTO outreach projects and our clothes closet.  We are using our clothes closet quite a lot for students who are coming to school out of uniform. Please make sure your student is in uniform when coming to school.

  • Benefits of a Bilingual Brain

    Research has consistently documented the power of immersion education to help students attain high levels of language proficiency. We are very fortunate that our school community has embraced this notation as Sun Valley Middle School is now offering a robust bilingual experience for a group of six grade learners within the Dual language immersion program. This particular program fosters bilingualism, bi-literacy, as well as enhances awareness of cultural diversity and academic achievement.

  • Sensory Study of Ratios

    Sixth grade SVMS students have been exploring many hands on learning opportunities to investigate equivalent ratios in math. Students had the opportunity to taste test recipes using different ratios, adjust the ratios of each recipe to match, and discover how making multiple batches of the same recipe created a final product that still tasted exactly the same, due to equivalent ratios.
