  • Sierra Verde STEAM Academy
    Sierra Verde is a S.T.E.A.M. Academy, meaning that in addition to teaching the CORE content areas, we also place a high emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.  Our theme is I3: Integrated, Innovative, Inquiry.  Throughout your classes you will notice that math will also be a part of science, and that social studies will be included during language arts.  This is what integrated means; your teachers will involve all the subjects together to help you learn the big picture.  Your teachers will be asking you to generate new ideas, problem-solve, and reflect not only about what you are learning, but to consider how you are learning.  Working as a team will be a key part of you education, and our goal is to prepare you for the skills necessary to be successful in the 21st Century. 
  • Parents, nurse pic
    We think good attendance is vital, but not when it may jeopardize the health of others.  Please keep your child at home if he/she shows any signs of illness (i.e. diarrhea, vomiting, a fever, rash or a communicable disease).  If your child has a fever of 100.1F (37.83C) or over, he/she needs to stay home twenty-four (24) hours after the temperature has returned to normal (without the aid of medication).  Please do not medicate your child for a fever, and then send them to school.  There are still contagious and may spread their illness to the other students and staff.
    Thank you!

  • Dear Parents,
    ALL classrooms at Sierra Verde School are nut-free areas. This includes foods processed in a factory that also processes nut-containing foods. Unfortunately, most bakery items, including cupcakes and donuts, are included in this group of foods, so they are not allowed. If there are other allergies in your child’s room, you will receive another note in January outlining these additional precautions. To keep all our students safe at school, baked/processed birthday or celebration treats brought to school to be shared in class must be one from the attached document.
    Thank you for your help.
