STUDENT CLUBS & ACTIVITIES
Here at Marina Vista we are dedicated to providing an excellent school experience for our students. In addition to our academic programs we have many extracurricular activities at MVE that we encourage our students to participate in. The following is a list of how your student can get more involved in their school experience:
Student Council:The Student Council is a governing body made up of 3rd-5th grade students at MVE. Students are elected in the fall and remain in their positions during the course of the schoolyear. Their responsibilities include planning, and hosting school fundraisers and student activities, as well as giving input in how to spend our All Student Body (ASB) funds and how to improve our school experience for our students. Students must be in good academic standing and exemplify our school rules and lifeskills in order to participate. Please contact our Student Council Advisor, Ms. Ronda Heath, for further information.
Book Club:Every year at Marina Vista our Library Technician hosts an after school Book Club for students who are interested in reading for fun. The club rotates grade levels and students can sign up when it is their grade level's turn. Students meet weekly to read together and to discuss the selected book. Please contact Mrs. Letha Arms for additional information.
Lunchtime Intramurals:Every year, students are offered the opportunity to play in Lunchtime Intramurals in the Spring. Sports, such as basketball, soccer, and flag football are offered to the 4th and 5th grade students while structured play games (Red Light/Green Light, tag games, etc.) are offered to 1st-3rd grade students. Students sign up during their P.E. classes with the P.E. teachers and are assigned to different teams. The purpose is to give students structured opportunities to engage in sports during lunch and to develop their athletic skills and sportsmanship.
Art Club:This year, Marina Vista is excited to offer an Art Club to our students. The Art Club meets after school once a week and is open to students in 4th and 5th grade. Students explore different art techniques and create a variety of art pieces. This Spring, they will hold our First Annual Art Show that will be open to any artist in grades K-5. We hope to be able to honor our young artists and their skills, why improve the art skills and foster the love of art for others. For further information, please contact Mrs. Katheryn Gillen or Ms. Michelle Ngo.
Newspaper Staff:Every year some of our 4th and 5th grade students meet after school on Fridays to publish our school newspaper. Our newspaper includes informative articles about things going on in our school community as well as fun games for the students. The newspaper staff meets after school on Fridays and students must apply to participate in the fall. It is a yearlong commitment. For more information on how your child can get involved, please contact Mr. Jonah Tice.
Girls on the Run:Girls on the Run is a national program that aims to build self-esteem and fitness for girls in grades 3-5. Every year at Marina Vista, Girls on the Run is offered twice a year. Girls are selected to participate through an application process and practices are held after school. At the end of the season, the girls run a 5K race in San Francisco to celebrate their successes.
MVE Family Nights:Every year, Marina Vista hosts Family Nights such as P.E. Night, Math Night, Science Night, Literacy Night, Game Night, etc. These are great opportunities for our students and parents to learn about our programs all while having a great time. It is also a good time for parents to meet other parents and teachers and to become active members in our school community.
Glee Club: Coming soon to Marina Vista will be our first official Glee Club. We are just getting it started and are excited about having this opportunity for our students. Details to follow.
