    Dear Solana Vista Families,

    School News:


    Spread Garden Love: Our garden program is up and running again! Thank you to Whitney Peterson for her wonderful work with our students as she exposes them to the world of harvesting, cooking and tasting! Sadly, on weekends, many visitors think our garden is “free game”. Much of our “harvest” is picked, plants are uprooted, and equipment is disturbed. If you are hanging around the soccer fields on Saturdays, please politely remind visitors that the Solana Vista garden is for the Solana Vista students, and they look forward to picking and tasting what they have grown!!

    Spirit Days: Fridays are Spirit Days at Solana Vista. All students are invited to wear Spirit Wear or Solana Vista school colors (blue and silver/gray). Go Waves!

    A Few Reminders:

    Don’t Forget! Students must wear CLOSED TOED shoes to school. We welcome running, climbing, and playing at recess and those activities are best down in athletic shoes. In addition to recess, students participate in PE multiple days each week. Please see our Dress Code for more information.

    Mark your Calendars:

    9/22: Dad’s Club Ice Cream Social @ 1:00

    9/27: Picture Day

    9/29: School Assembly @ 8:35

    A Little Something to Think About:

    As mentioned last week, one of our goals this year is to help our Solana Vista students learn that our brains are like muscles and, with practice and training, our brains will grow and get stronger. Last week, I invited you to visit a website that had ideas for parents who wanted to know more about having a Growth Mindset.

    This week, I am sharing a website called: Top 10 Growth Mindset Resources for Parents. From videos to printables to an online course to poster ideas for bedrooms…just pick one resource to explore and make it a family challenge to grow your minds together! Even we adults can work on this one!
