Black History Month at SVA
Written by Jared Stewart, Education Unit Manager
ScenicView's annual Black History Month celebration has passed, but we'd like to thank everyone who helped make it a huge success! This year, the focus of the weekly assemblies was on SVA's Empowerment Statements.
Emily Uasila'a shared poetry and points from the life of Pulitzer Prize winner Maya Angelou, who taught us to "find joy in the journey", and showed that "I am worthy of respect and connection".
New in 2016: SVA's New Logo
To usher in 2016, ScenicView Academy adopted a brand new logo design based on the suggestion and idea of Chase Carson, a recently graduated ScenicView student.
Let’s Get Connected

New year…new term…new start.
This past week, ScenicView Academy students and staff were a little less serious as they participated in several different Welcome Week Activities to get to know each other, build relationships, and have a little fun at the same time. New students were welcomed, awards were presented, and recognition was given for all the hard work that has been accomplished these last few months.
It is no coincidence that this is how 2016 begins.

Dear Parents/Guardians of ScenicView Academy Students,
I am pleased to greet you through this letter, and hope this finds you doing well. There are many exciting things going on at ScenicView Academy (SVA), and I want to share some of them with you. First off, many of you are aware that Doug Gale retired June 1, 2015. He served SVA very well as our Executive Director for 14 years. He still continues to serve us as he was appointed on our Board of Trustees. Prior to my appointment as the Executive Director, I was at SVA for 7 years as the Clinical Services Unit Manager. I am excited to serve you in this new capacity.
