"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

Student Mock Elections Come To Van Nuys MS

Van Nuys Middle School students came to the polls on Thursday, November 3, 2016 and participated in a Mock General Election for the Presidency of the United States and other local election items. Students had the choice of casting a ballot during nutrition or lunch and they came by the hundreds.

The purpose of holding Student Mock Elections is to encourage students to become active voters once they are old enough to cast a ballot.

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!”
