General: Updated 5/30/2018
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:
Enrichment: Updated 5/30/2018
Heber Valley Camp: Mark your calendars for Heber Valley Camp on August 22-23 and our Summer Bash on August 24! This is programming which means you will be paid to attend the event (instead of attending work). The computer labs, fitness center, and cafeteria will also be closed during this time. Our theme chosen by our SBLs is “Outer Space”. There will be great food, fun activities, and plenty of time to make lasting memories with your friends! Make sure you sign up so we can prepare enough transportation. If you are interested in staying the night or if you have any questions, please talk to a Rec Therapist.
Enrichment Bucks: Enrichment will be initiating 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. More info coming soon!
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 this summer 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.
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 Robert Seely.
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 Robert Seely and he’ll get you trained.
We also have a small practice room, CB 228, that is available for students to practice in when the music room is being used. Just ask a staff member to unlock it for you and let them know when you’ll be done practicing.
Student Activity Room Use: The purpose of the SAR is for social interaction not lounging or napping. Please keep the SAR looking nice by cleaning up after yourself. You must shower and have clean clothes on when sitting on the bean bags and keep any food or drinks off the bean bags. 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 5/30/2018
MTech Tours: On Tuesday, June 13, we’re touring the pre-engineering programs at the Orem MTech campus such as welding and machining.
If you’d like to go, just tell someone in the Education Dept. so we can schedule additional vehicles. Meet us in the Atrium at 2 PM.
Big Read Contest: The new Summer Term Big Read Contest goes to August 20th. Record all of your reading pages on the intranet, Big Read section or enter your pages in the front desk binder, under the Big Read tab
Mellow Monday: Our next Mellow Monday will be next June 11th from 11:45-12:30. Come and meet our therapy animal friends in the Student Activities Room.
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
Residential: Updated 5/30/2018
Student Mentors: We need student mentors for the new students who will be joining us in January. Please contact Craig, Jeanine, 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.
General Residential Items:
Nurses Note: We didn’t exactly avoid the flu here at Scenic View this winter. . . Anyone caught Spring Fever yet??
If you’ve caught the fever already, go out outside and get some FREE, NATURAL VIT. D!! Did you know that Vitamin D is sometimes called the “sunshine vitamin” because it’s produced in your skin in response to sunlight. Vit D is important because it helps keep your teeth and bones strong and helps your immune system. It also helps fight certain diseases, reduce depression and helps with weight loss. “It’s SPRING FEVER. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want ~oh you don’t quite know what it is you want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so” -Mark Twain
SPECIAL NOTE: If you have a concern or a conflict with someone at ScenicView, it is best to resolve the conflict with the individual directly. If you feel uncomfortable doing so, you may involve an appropriate staff member to help you. Please do not gossip about the person you have a conflict with.
Vocational: Updated 5/30/2018
Temps work from 9-12 every morning, Monday through Friday. Students should be able to learn technical skills for their assigned tasks. More importantly, students will be able to learn executive functioning/employability skills that employers value from their employees. Learn these skills to be more successful at work. Each student should be prompt, appropriately dressed for the type of work he/she will be assigned and should be ready to work. Learn to please your supervisor and be more productive for whatever task you do.
Please prepare adequately every day: Any student employees should communicate with their supervisor and their vocational staff member about any concerns you may have while at work.
