"The most influential of all educational factors is the conversation in a child's home.     -William Temple      "The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."     -   Martin Luther King, Jr.         "Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom."    - George Washington Carver     "The purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open one."    -  Malcolm Forbes   “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”     ― Nelson Mandela     “Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.”  ― Robert Frost     “Only a generation of readers will spawn a generation of writers.”    ― Steven Spielberg     “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”  ― Aristotle

Hippocrates Circle

Congratulations!!!
55 students were selected to participate in the Hippocrates Circle Program. This exciting program will introduce students to a possible career as a physician. It does not cost anything to participate, just some of your time.
There is a "Kick Off" event for the 55 selected students and their parent(s)/guardian(s). This event is mandatory because it sets the stage for the rest of the events. Students will not be allowed to continue in the program, if they do not attend this event.
The “Kick Off” event will be held on Thursday, February 9, 2017 from 5:30pm to 8:00 pm. It will take place at our school- Van Nuys Middle School.
Physicians and Administrative staff from the Kaiser Permanente, Panorama City Medical Center have organized a series of activities that will be held during this school year. Students will have the opportunity to meet some of the Kaiser doctors and learn about what they do. Our school is very supportive of this program. The Hippocrates Circle Program is a once in a lifetime opportunity! Remember, our community needs more doctors. We need you!

When 'Jeopardy!' comes to school - LA Times Article 10-29-16 (Click Here)

It was a cloudy weekday evening at Van Nuys Middle School in the San Fernando Valley. Fallen leaves dotted the campus, and a brief drizzle speckled windshields.

After school ended, over 100 students crowded into the auditorium, faces painted blue, pom-poms in hand, to cheer on their friends in a simulated version of the game show “Jeopardy!”
