SVA’s annual Art Exhibit showcases student art work and celebrates the arts. A special guest speaker is invited to speak to parents regarding the exhibit’s theme and how it applies to their home life.
Every Wednesday, students work on different art, craft and cooking projects in mixed grade level groups. Through Art Orbit, students learning is enriched with experiences that include sharing materials and skills with peers of varying age and ability levels.
To encourage the love of reading, SVA holds an annual book fair and character dress up day. In addition, they are treated to a professional story teller.
To highlight the different career opportunities, students are treated to presentations and hands on learning experiences from professionals in a variety of fields.
The genesis of this reading project is to inspire our students to achieve literacy, receive academic support and gain life skills from the community. Community members such as the Sunnyvale PD, Sunnyvale Mayor, and local Imams visit classrooms and read a book to the students followed by a question and answer session.
SVA students enjoy multiple field trips during the academic year that relate to their unit of study. For every unit, teachers are highly encouraged to take their students on a parent sponsored field trip.
Classroom teachers invite guest speakers on a regular basis to talk to their students about their area of expertise. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to see the connection between their academic standards and their real life application.
