Science Camp: As part of the 5th grade Science curriculum, all 5th grade students are expected to attend Science camp at Walden West. We will have parent meetings to explain the costs, fundraising opportunities and other details. We will give students and parents an opportunity to raise money for individual student accounts by selling candies.


Environmental Eco-Action: Vinci Park's 5th graders take part in an Eco-Action project to help clean up our community. Our classes have taken part in the "Adopt-A-Creek" program of the Santa Clara County Water District. Each class will make a clean-up visit to Upper Penitencia Creek, just a few blocks from our school.


Educational Field Trips:The teachers schedule field trips for their classes. Some trips may be for the entire grade level while others for just one or two classes.
