Activities of the Month: Updated 3/4/2019
General: Updated 3/5/2019
Transportation Change: Change in transportation to the Salt Lake Airport. Beginning in January 2019 ScenicView Academy will no longer provide rides to or from the airport. We recommend that you use Express Shuttle their phone number is 801-596-1600 If you plan ahead and travel with other students, the cost will be less expensive. The other option will be to take Frontrunner to Salt Lake then take Trax to the Airport. Craig or Josh can help you with this schedule. A more expensive option would be to take Uber or Lyft to the airport. If you have already paid for a ride to ScenicView in January we will honor that reservation.
Utilize Your SVA Email: Please, please, please check your emails. Thanks!
Community Meeting announcements can now be found on the recreation bulletin board located next to the weight room. Please take time to read them each week as there is important information on here.
Google Calendar: Students please update your schedules using Google Calendar. Thanks!
Sign-up Sheets: Keep an eye on the sign-up sheets on the recreation board for upcoming on-campus, off-campus, and student initiative activities. Remember to flip through the pages on the clipboards so you don’t miss out on any activities and be on time to activities you sign up for. Speak to a rec therapist if you have any questions.
Good news! To provide students with more opportunities for shopping, visiting the library, and socializing off-campus, the SVA shuttle is now running every weeknight, and with limited service on Sundays! The service runs just like a bus with stops at specific locations at specific times.
The current M-F schedule is as follows:
Starting April 22nd the shuttle will only be going to the University Place Station, next to the Orem Mall. The Shuttle will start at 6:30 PM and the last run will get back at 10 PM. You will be expected to use the bus to get anywhere beyond here. The 850 and UVX stop here, this is a major transportation hub.
Enrichment: Updated 3/5/2019
New Bikes: Good news! Enrichment has purchased some new bikes for students to use as the weather gets warmer! These are a great mode of transportation for quick errands, sodalicious runs, hanging out at the Riverwoods, etc. If you would like to check out a bike, please speak with a Rec Therapist.
Enrichment Bucks: Enrichment has started passing out Enrichment Bucks, which will give you $ off of the total price of Student Initiative Activities. These will be handed out by Enrichment Staff when we notice students practicing social skills, being an example of our Empowerment Statements, getting out of their comfort zone/trying something new, etc.
Student Initiative Activities: Keep an eye on the calendar for Student Initiative Activities each month. These activities are marked with ** . Most of these activities will cost $5 or less for you to attend. There will be some activities coming up that will cost more than $5 to attend and we encourage you to start saving/budgeting your money if you would like to attend these activities. Check the calendar for more information. Below are upcoming activities that will cost more than $5 to attend. Start budgeting your money now if you are interested in these activities!
Activities: Check out the calendar on the Announcement board for activities each day. If there is a * next to the activity, it means sign up is required to attend. If you have work or classes during an activity, you are not excused from these responsibilities. You must go to work or class unless given permission by a Rec Therapist, your service coordinator, and your work supervisor/teacher. We encourage you to sign up and attend activities that are not during your work/class time. If you have any questions, please speak with a Rec Therapist
Music Room Use: Please don’t use any equipment or instruments in the music room, unless you have been shown the correct way to handle and play them by our music instructor. The music room is open for practicing any time a lesson is not being taught there, however, please leave the music room as clean and as tidy as you found it. This will prevent instruments from getting broken. If you would like to try a new instrument just talk with Stephanie and she’ll get you trained.
Student Activity Room Use: New SAR guidelines have been posted. Please review these rules before using this room. The purpose of the SAR is for social interaction not lounging or napping. Please keep the SAR looking nice by cleaning up after yourself.The SAR will remain unlocked, but if it becomes apparent that it is used for napping or it is not being taken care of, the room will be locked during business hours and will only be opened for specific use of the room by students
Educational: Updated 3/5/2019
New Library Hours:
Borrow A Book: Have you noticed the new "Borrow a Book" bookshelf in the residential building by the stairs on the 2nd floor? Students and staff - borrow a book for as long as you need it, then just put it back on the bookshelf for someone else to enjoy. If you have any books you would like to donate, just bring them up to Jane or someone in Education. You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book! ~ Dr. Seuss
Book Bunch: COME JOIN US FOR A INTERACTIVE HOUR OF FUN READING ON FRIDAYS FROM 1:00-2:00 IN THE STUDENT ACTIVITY ROOM. EVERYONE IS WELCOME!

Student Mentors: We need student mentors for the new students who will be joining us in June. Please contact Craig or Suzanne if you are interested in becoming a mentor.
Clean Up After Yourself: We need students and staff when you are eating, cooking or doing other things that may create a mess, to clean up after yourself. Often there are spills in the Resident Building Dining Room that get left for others to clean when each of us should be responsible for the cleaning. This includes using the training kitchen. Please take time to do the dishes when you have finished cooking.
