Loma Vista ESA Students @ Kindness Campaign Red Carpet Event

In March 2017, Solano County Supervisor John M Vasquez and District Attorney Krishna Abrams challenged all students in grades 7 through 12 to show what kindess looks like.  With the Kindness Challenge, students were asked "If you had the Power of Kindness, how would you use it?"  Loma Vista students in the Encore program responded with a short video that has been entered into the competition.  On May 8, 2018 at the Solano County Events Center, 601 Texas Street, Fairfield, there will be a screening of the entries and awards ceremony beginning at 7:00 pm.  The video features Meeya M, Malachi R, and Aliyah J.  Good job by Mr. Eddie Barragan and Destiny Ferrera.

LVESA Farm Partners with Sustainable Solano

LOMA VISTA FARM has been a resource for environmental education and experiences for Vallejo's children and community for over four decades. SUSTAINABLE SOLANO has been working towards community sustainability since 1999. These two natural partners are coming together to create a Permaculture Demonstration Public Garden. On Saturday November 18 the public was invited to work on the installation of the demonstration garden at VCUSD's Loma Vista Farm.

Permaculture is centered on earth care, people care, and fair share. Sustainable Solano and VCUSD provide opportunities for the public to learn about how these permaculture concepts apply to this garden and our community, as well as how it can be applied to your own gardens.  If you have questions, please contact, Sustainable Landscaping Manager, Nicole Newell at nicole@sustainablesolano.org

Principal Britt Hammon

Principal HammonHello Friends and Family,

There are many things which make Loma Vista Environmental Science Academy a special place for learning. We remain committed to working together as a TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More), to utilize the knowledge and skills each Team member possesses, to communicate, and to partner effectively with parents to ensure their child's success in school. Our vision continues to be to create a learning community where every child will achieve to his/her highest potential. Loma Vista is a safe place where children are free to learn, grow, make mistakes and learn from these mistakes. We provide a challenging program to all students in a caring way, with support systems for all levels.

We are very pleased with the progress we have made developing as an Environmental Science Academy over the last four years.  All classes and students visit the Loma Vista Farm each week and participate in hands-on cooking, animal care, vegetable farming, and science lessons taught by their Teachers, Farmer Rita, Farmer Alisha, and sometimes the Principal!

Loma Vista is also home to only one of two working farms in the country. The Loma Vista Farm is an outdoor classroom that provides children with standards based hands-on learning opportunities to bolster their academic skills in reading, writing, math, social science, language arts and science. To learn more about the farm, please visit the Loma Vista Farm website which can be found on the top of this page. For your convenience, the farm website is http://www.lomavistafarm.org.

We are very lucky to have a dedicated STEAM lab for our students in grades K-5.  Our students work on long-term projects which incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. LVESA has won STEAM awards two years in a row. We have Mrs Imelda Enos and Ms. Rebecca Carcamo who work with our students and classroom teachers.

When choosing a school for your children, please consider Loma Vista.  As a K-8 school we are able to offer a close-knit family-centered school which offers many supports to students and families.  Our Academic Support Provider, Kathi Hill, is our school-community link who works to remove all barriers to student success. 

Looking forward to our Partnership,

Britt Hammon, Principal

It's always a great day to be an Owl!
