Many activities add to the Loma Vista student experience, built into the school day and available as optional opportunities before and after school. The school celebrates many traditions (weekly school-wide assemblies, on-site and off-site enrichment assemblies and field trips, a credentialed Physical Education teacher, a Halloween Parade & Pumpkin Chunkin event, Dr. Seuss' birthday and 5th grade Outdoor Science School camp in the local mountains, and more! The school PTO offers a variety of community-building events. The school's Learning Garden brings each classroom out into nature and provides students with opportunities to learn about where food comes from, how to be good stewards of our earth and even some business lessons. There is something different each year!
