Flora Vista Receives Top Honors in Civics!
Flora Vista is the ONLY elementary school in California to receive the top honor for Civics Education, the Award of Excellence!Congratulations to the FV students and staff for, in the words of CA Chief Justice Cantil-Sakauye, "creativity and commitment to civic education...giving students the skills they will need as active participants and leaders in our democracy." At Flora Vista, Civic Learning is a focus - and also a vehicle for students, as they develop solutions to real-world issues that matter to them, on topics ranging from local to global issues!

We would also like to thank our FV families for supporting your students’ passions and efforts to make our school, community, and world a kinder, more equitable, and more sustainable place for all!

Flora Vista's Annual Survey is HERE!
Every year at Flora Vista, the principal, PTA, and EEF conduct a survey to gather feedback about the parent-funded programs offered at Flora Vista. With 7 important questions, the annual survey informs both short- and long-term planning. Parents, staff, and students all have an opportunity for annual input.

Some specific notes about the survey and the programs:
  • In addition to the content below that is taught by the classroom teacher, past and currently funded enrichment includes Science Lab, Music, P.E, and Drama.
  • The survey focuses on content not teachers (as teachers may change year-to-year), and informs both short- and long-term planning.
  • Sites need to consider the availability of qualified, credentialed candidates and facility space.
  • Health & Wellness (yoga) position is not included in the survey, as it is funded 100% by EUSD. Sites have the opportunity to determine the content of the second slot taught by the Heath & Wellness instructor (in addition to yoga). This year, P.E. was taught in the second slot, supplementing the P.E. time with the classroom teacher.

Thank you VERY much for adding to the dialogue and helping us provide even more meaningful programming for our Flora Vista students. And now, on to the survey – please click on the link HERE to begin!
