STEM Exploration at Valley College

Sixth and seventh grade girls had an amazing STEM field trip to Valley College! on Friday, February 5. They participated in three different hands-on activities including coding and creating their own Star Wars game, learning about binary numbers, and learning more about themselves through career exploration.  Thank you to the Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio who generously sponsored this amazing field trip for our students.

Honor Band students had to earn a spot in this ensemble by taking a live audition in which the requirements included preparing a predetermined piece of music; eight of the twelve major scales; a chromatic scale showcasing the full range of their instrument (or as close as possible); and sight-reading a piece of music.

The concert begins at 7pm and is free to the public. It usually lasts around 90 minutes.

Have you noticed our new emblem on the Administration building?  This marks our school as a Gold Ribbon Award School!  Last spring, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson awarded Mesa View, one of only 373 secondary schools in California, the new Gold Ribbon School Award.  This puts Mesa View in the top 8% of all high schools, junior high schools, and middle schools in the state.  This recognition replaces the former "Distinguished School" award and is a prestigious honor.  Read the official letter by clicking here.  Thank you to our students, parents, and staff who all contributed to earning this award!
