Cathy Gallegos Principal

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year. Now in its second year of housing 4th, 5th, and 6th graders, Sierra Vista has really come into its own. We are excited to announce that our school moved from a “D” grade to a “B” for the 2017-2018 school year. It truly was a concerted effort between students, parents, faculty, and staff.

We have continued with our modified block schedule which affords teachers with extended time to teach in greater depth and vary their instruction. On Mondays and Thursdays, teachers emphasize language arts in the morning and math in the afternoon. Tuesdays and Fridays are dedicated to math in the morning and language arts in the afternoon. Wednesdays focus on science and social studies. Students study Spanish and participate in one elective on a daily basis. Every classroom is equipped with a document cameras and touchscreen television. 

At Sierra Vista, we are concerned with more than just a child’s academic development. Sierra Vista is continuing their efforts at making Kids at Hope an integral part of our school culture. Kids at Hope is a system for transforming schools to foster optimistic attitudes.

I am looking forward to working with you and your children this year. Please contact me if you have questions or concerns.
