ENERGIZE Behavior: This week, the teachers and staff here at Sierra Vista are on the lookout for any Plainsmen that are demonstrating the behavior expectation of ENERGIZE. When a teacher or other staff member catches you doing this, he or she may award you with a bit of flair to showcase on your back pack or binder. Teachers or other staff may also award you with a Together We Succeed Ticket. Students who earn these tickets can turn them into the ASB office and will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win a prize.
Los Angeles County Science Fair: We are excited to announce that we will be competing in the Los Angeles County Science Fair! This is a great event for any students with big ideas in science, math, or engineering. It is a great opportunity to showcase your talents and skills.
