LOS ANGELES (Dec. 12, 2017) — The Board of Education today approved instructional calendars for the next three school years that start classes before Labor Day and give students a week off at Thanksgiving and a three-week winter break between first and second semester.

First semester – Aug. 14 to Dec. 14
Second semester – Jan. 7 to June 7
Winter recess – Dec. 17 to Jan. 4
Spring recess – April 15 to 19
First semester – Aug. 20 to Dec. 20
Second semester – Jan. 13 to June 12
Winter recess – Dec. 23 to Jan. 10
Spring recess – April 6 to 10
First semester – Aug. 18 to Dec. 18

Viva Technology and Southern California Gas Company
Great Minds of S.T.E.M.
Thanks to Viva Technology and the Southern California Gas Company, the fourth-grade students of Sunny Brae had a blast last November 3, 2017, with hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math activities. “Viva Technology™ is a national K-12 education program designed to engage students, teachers, and parents with STEM challenges that stimulate their interest in the application of technology and provide STEM-focused career pathways. The program creates awareness, supplies STEM resources and provides access to STEM career pathways.”
Sunny Brae Students Ran for a Cause
Students, parents, teachers, and PTA participated in the LA Cancer Challenge last October 29, 2017 at UCLA. The team raised $1,080 for this worthy cause.
Lifted from the Sunny Brae E.S. Tigers page:
“Our team is so excited to be participating in the LA Cancer Challenge at UCLA. The LACC helps the Hirshberg Foundation raise money to fund research and programs designed to improve patient care, offer better treatment options and, ultimately find a cure for pancreatic cancer. Together we can make a huge difference in the battle against pancreatic cancer. “

Fifth Grade: Social Studies Field Trip to William Hart Museum
The fifth-grade students led by Mr. Grimaud, Ms. Bentson, Ms. Leparulo, and Mr. Higgins toured the William Hart Museum featuring an impressive collection of Western artwork by noted artists Charles M. Russell, Frederic Remington, and Joe de Yong, as well as artifacts representing multiple Native American cultures. They all explored the Spanish Colonial Revival Style Mansion and the Ranch House located in scenic William S. Hart Park, where they visited a live collection of farm animals, a herd of American bison, a vast picnic area, a series of hiking trails, and a charming Western-themed Gift Store.
