Art Docent & Artsonia:

Artsonia is the world's largest kids' art museum. Our dream is that every child will have a special art gallery online, reflecting their masterpieces from pre-school through high-school, preserved for all time! Click on the image to the left to visit ArtSonia.

Physical Education:

P.E. doesn't just happen at Sierra Hills, it is a part of our core.  Physical Education is very important in the lives of young children.  It helps children with improved physical fitness, provides skill and motor development, helps improve academics, as well as many other benefits.  Students at Sierra Hills receive Physical Education instruction on a weekly basis, and work on a variety of activities from skill development units for catching, throwing, coordination and flexibility, as well as activity units for games, rules, and sportsmanship.  Our P.E. program provides two areas for enrichment.  Not only does it provide the physical components, but it allows for true small group reading instruction.  When students are at PE, half the class stays with the teacher for differentiated reading instruction at their specific level, with their specific needs.  


Sierra Hills School is currently in the planning stages of returning to having weekly music for all.

Running Club:

Our amazing parent club supports and runs this amazing program for students to participate in organized running/conditioning.  Students have the opportunity at each lunch recess to run laps on our paved course, each mile earning special running charms for their necklace.  Students have been know to run over 40 miles in a year at SHS, and loving every minute.

Owls Nest:

Our Owls nest is open before school from 7 until 7:45, and then resumes afterschool from the end of the day, until 5:30.  This amazing program provides time for a snack, play, arts and crafts, as well as time to read and get homework done.  We also have opportunities in the afterschool program to attend mini-courses including art, sign-language, drama, and more.
