Dear Senita Valley Parents/Guardians, Our 7th school year is nearing the end. We have had a wonderful year, full of exciting events, fundraisers and most importantly our students have grown. We are so proud of them! We received the “A” rating from the Arizona Department of Education again for the 6th year in a row. We also were awarded the Golden Bell Award from the AZ School Board Association for our E3 program (Everyone Exploring Enrichment). Thank you for your support throughout the year!

SVE Awarded ADE School of Distinction for Excellence in Civic Engagement!

The goal of civic literacy is to ensure that students have a fundamental knowledge of the general framework of their government, acquire and demonstrate the skills and traits necessary to participate as active and responsible citizens. Arizona’s Common Core Standards in English language arts and mathematics support the goal of civic literacy in various ways. Reading and comprehending complex informational text allows students to acquire extensive content knowledge about historical events, democratic ideals, processes and institutions. Communicating precisely, constructing viable arguments and critiquing the reasoning of others empowers students to paraphrase information, articulate complex ideas representing various points of view and practice the art of civil discourse. Identifying and analyzing a problem in the community provides students with the opportunity to apply what they learn through performing community service that is linked to the formal curriculum and classroom instruction.
