Recently, our 5th grade students were able to work with our local Parks and Recreation Department by sprucing up a local park. They were given a very large pile of playground bark and asked to move it into the play area. It was a warm day but our students worked together and closely measured out the material, trying their best to keep the areas as level as possible.
With shovels, wheelbarrows, and teamwork, our students were able to accomplish exactly what they had set out to do! The park looks great and it now has a safer area to play. Way to go Bobcats!
We also received a letter from the local volunteer coordinator, thanking our students for their hard work.
BASIS Independent Silicon Valley's Music Program and Art Department recently hosted its annual Winter Fine Arts Gala at a nearby facility. The Winter Gala is a festive tradition that celebrates the arts as well as the creativity, passion, and hard work of our Bobcat students.
On display was a collection of student work from BASIS Independent Silicon Valley’s 2D Studio Art, 3D Studio Art, AP 2D Art, Grade 5 Studio Art, Grade 6 Art History Studio, and Digital Photography classes. Attendees were also treated to an evening of traditional classics, pop anthems, and epic cinematic music. This delightful experience was presented entirely by our student music ensembles.
Take a look below at a few snapshots from the evening and of our student's work.
Last week was Spirit Week, a fun and dare I say, spirited time on campus. Food trucks and daily lunch activities and a pep rally, oh my! Our kids dressed in themes all week, and thoroughly enjoyed themselves-Bobcats know how to be both serious and playful.
Take a look at some of the photos from Spirit Week, below!
Inspired by the blissful feeling of uncovering connections, our blog Eureka! Silicon Valley is about sharing moments that capture the essence of what it is to be a BASIS Independent student, teacher, administrator, or family.
