Congratulations to our Sixth Graders!
Congratulations to our sixth graders, who will have their promotion ceremony this Friday, June 21st. The promotion ceremony will run from 8:30 am through 10:00 am in the MPR at Flora Vista. Light snacks will be served immediately following the ceremony. REMEMBER: Parking will consist of street parking only, so plan accordingly!

"Go not where the path may lead,
go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
News This Week:
Civics in Action:
Last year, you might recall seeing Flora Vista 5th& 6th graders out on our grassy slope recording crossing data and driver/pedestrian incidents. These students had decided to pick back up what had been a longtime safety concern in our community - the need for a crosswalk at Wandering Rd. The students then requested and were provided the opportunity to speak to the Encinitas City Council’s School District Liaison Committee. Councilmembers, School Superintendents, and City Staff listened and asked questions as our students spoke passionately and articulately about our pressing safety need. Like a lot of good ideas, the crosswalk was not immediately approved or funded. However, we just received word from the city that the project has been approved and submitted for completion this summer! We are so proud of our young civic activists, and grateful to our teachers, parents, and EUSD leadership for supporting our students’ passion for improving their communities! Lastly, a huge “Thank you!” to the City of Encinitas, for recognizing the need and putting multiple teams on this project to get it accomplished this summer!
Check Out Our New Native Plants Garden!
Next time you're standing near the gate outside the Kindergarten playground, check out the new native plants garden against the front wall. This beautiful new garden is the result of hard work from Ms. Goyette's fourth grade class. The students researched, designed, and planted a native plant garden as part of their California studies. It looks great now and will be even more amazing once the plants are established.

This is just a little insight into what's to come with the larger community garden project, so be sure to stay tuned to see what else is coming!
