Ag in the Classroom

Mrs. Shelton's 3rd grade students have been enjoying the Arizona's 5 C's curriculum kit provided by the Arizona Farm Bureau's Ag in the Classroom program. The students are learning that Arizona is famous for: citrus, cotton, copper, climate, and cattle. The students are making daily connections to life and activating prior knowledge. These engaging lessons and cooperative hands-on activities are a great way to promote careers in the agricultural industry and inspire young inventors. Here you can see the students ginning cotton (separating the seed from the raw cotton boll.) After 25 minutes of ginning, one student said, "No wonder Eli Whitney invented a machine for this! I'm exhausted!"



MVP's Barrett Summer Scholars
Several students from MVP applied for the Barrett Summer Scholars (BSS) program and were just recently accepted. This program provides opportunities for students to experience college firsthand and prepare for enrollment and success at Arizona State University (ASU) and Barrett, the Honors College. Students will live on campus this summer, engage in college-level coursework, and participate in a community of peers from across the state.

Mayor Joens Attends COCSD STEM Fair
Christian Contreras, an 8th grader in Mrs. Rhoda's science class at MVP, had the chance to explain his Molecular Model Project to the Mayor of Cottonwood, Diane Joens, at the COCSD STEM Fair.  The Mayor was impressed and says that she got a nice review of molecular bonds and chemistry.
4th Grade Goes to Desert Botanical Garden
On March 19, MVP 4th graders went to Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix to learn all about the adaptations that AZ plant life has to make in order to survive in such extreme conditions.  A very special thanks to our community for their tax credit support that allowed such a beautiful hands-on learning experience!

 
7/8 Grades California Physics Trip
Forty 7th and 8th grade students and five staff members from Mountain View Preparatory took a road trip to California during spring break.  While there, the students participated in an amazing physics lesson where they built roller coasters (pictured), learned how the Tower of Terror works and the fundamentals of California Screamin' at California Adventure.  They then spent the rest of the day park hopping over to Disneyland.  The next day they visited the California Science Center where they got to see the Space Shuttle Endeavor.  A big thank you to Project Exploration for always providing us with safe and exciting adventures.
Dr. Seuss Day

MVP students, parents, and grandparents enjoyed a Dr. Seuss-themed green eggs and ham breakfast on Monday, March 2, 2015. Many parents also spent time in their children's classrooms reading books with the students. Pictured here are MVP third grader, Gabrielle Islas, and fifth grader, Anthony Islas, with their grandparents.
