First Trimester Awards Assembly is Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Please look for a YELLOW note in your child's backpack on Friday, November 17th.  If your child receives an invitation to the Awards Assembly, it means they have earned either Student of the Month, Honor Roll, or an Attendance Award.  The YELLOW note will have the time of the assembly for each grade level.  If you have a question, please check with your child's teacher.  If your child does not receive a yellow note, they are not receiving an award for the first trimester.  Keep working hard, and look forward to Trimester 2!

SUSTAINABLE SOLANO AND LOMA VISTA FARM TO PARTNER

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 from 9 am to 4 pm the public is invited to come 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. 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. Build together: plant trees, dig swales, and mulch as you create the first layer of the Permaculture Public Garden. Share a table and meet new friends over pizza and drinks provided at lunch.We will end the event with information about the overall design, use of secondary water, and details and tips for how to involve children in the creation/learning process. This event is FREE and open to the public. If you have questions, please contact, Sustainable Landscaping Manager, Nicole Newell at nicole@sustainablesolano.org

Loma Vista Farm

The Loma Vista Farm is a working farm and outdoor classroom which supports the academic and environmental programs of Loma Vista Environmental Science Academy, a public K-8 school.  Support for the animals comes from the Friends of Loma Vista Farm. The Loma Vista Farm is an outdoor classroom for LVESA students and available for field trips by contacting Principal Britt Hammon (bhammon@Vallejo.k12.ca.us) at (707) 556-8550 or Farmer Rita at (707) 556-8550.

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!

Middle School Puts A Scare into Loma Vista

Once again this year, Mr. Henderson and the Loma Vista Middle School Teachers and Students have put together frightful fun for our school community.  Students and family members were taken on guided tours through the middle school with the intensity of the "scare" increasing with the age and willingness of the visitors.  There was lots of screams and peels of laughter, from the youngest of our babies to Grannys and Gramps.  Until next year, may the spookiness be with you!
