Sierra Vista Jr. High | Sierra Vista Life, 9-20-19
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.
SSA: If you signed up and turned in your permission slip for Safe School Ambassadors, we will be having our training on Monday and Tuesday next week. Report to the MPR first thing Monday morning.
Lunchtime Intramurals: Lunchtime intramurals are coming back in October Sierra and Mr. Drabinski wants your opinion. What sports would you like to see at Sierra Vista? What type of sports/activities would you like to see during lunch? Is volleyball your sport? Do you want to play hockey? Does it sound fun?
