Indoor Recess

With unpredictable weather, recess can be a challenge.  SJV students in 1st-4th grade got grooving and moving  with GoNoodle!



STEM Day with Austin Peay University

Austin Peay University joined SJV today for our STEM field day.  The upper elementary grades discovered the importance of STEM to run a cookie business. The students had to use their science expertise to explain how objects float in order to engineer a boat to float from the start of the Mississippi River in MN all the way to NOLA to deliver delicious cookies.  In small groups, the students used a budget, graph paper, and experience to design and build a boat.  Then the students tested out their boats!  The winning group’s boat held 47 cookies. Fun was had by all!
