Congratulations and kudos to Dr. Chun on his national recognition.
- Third Grade and Kindergarten Students Team Up for Reading - They are called Reading Buddies at Carmichael Elementary School in the Sierra Vista Unified School District, and they think that reading is awesome. One time per month the students in kindergarten sit with their third grade Reading Buddy to work on a project, such as creating a book, making a holiday gift, or just celebrating reading. The teachers have promoted this program as they feel that the students encourage each other to improve in their reading skills, and increase their love of reading.
- Bringing Cheer to the Community - Early in December, students from every school in the Sierra Vista Unified School District participate in the community's annual Christmas Parade. The Sierra Vista Chamber of Commerce hosted the day's events and hundreds attended. This year, the younger students from Carmichael Elementary School, some as young as Kindergarten, rode in the back of a trailer singing holiday tunes all along the parade route. Among the first to walk the parade route was the Joyce Clark Middle School Band, and the school's choirs followed-up not too far behind singing Christmas carols and waving to the crowds. Next came the older students, the Buena High School Choirs sang out Christmas songs as they walked the parade, and the Buena High School Student Council members, who decorated their float in just a few days, won the Judge's Award for Outstanding Design for their entry. Congratulations for all of the Sierra Vista Students who participated in this community event.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Routine for Young Students
Learning is a structured task, and so it benefits a student to have a schedule which supports their learning goals. A schedule that provides for extracurriculars, homework, projects, family time, and free time can be flexible. The goal is to have a pattern that a child can count on each week when they know that they will have time to take care of their responsibilities. Building that into the routine can ease a lot of stress for a child and will help develop their time management and study skills.
