SV Week 31 Update
A Great Start to 4th Quarter
As we head into April, our Spring Testing window opens Tuesday April 2 for our 3-8th graders. We have a new test this year named the AASA which will be administered to all 3rd-8th graders in the state and it will include writing, reading, and math for all students. Additionally, our 5th and 8th graders will take an additional science test (AZ Sci) as part of the AASA testing that all students must take in Arizona.
Our kids will continue to shine, and there is nothing for them to "study", we just ask for your help in ensuring that they arrive with their having eaten breakfast, with chromebooks fully charged, on time, and stay for the duration of the school day during our testing window. Please do not schedule any appointments during this window so that our students get every opportunity to take their time and do their best on these assessments. As a reminder, we also have breakfast available for all students at no charge this year for all our students starting at 8:10 am.
8th Graders work on Stop-Motion animation in Mrs. Scofield's STEM class using her new tripods.

Student Environment Input Form
DVUSD guidelines do not allow a specific teacher to be requested, but may allow parents to provide input on their child’s needs and the type of teacher that may best serve their child’s needs. It is our belief at Sierra Verde that teachers and parents can provide the best education possible for our children by working together. The responsibility for assignment of students resides with the principal and teachers working together to place students in a learning environment that best meets the needs of the student. Also keep in mind that teachers may change grade levels and/or schools. Therefore, providing detailed information regarding the preferred learning environment and your child’s needs is critical.
