Last night, School of Dreams administration was made aware of a threat to the school posted on social media. We take all threats seriously. Therefore, we are working closely with law enforcement and others to get to the bottom of this. As a precaution we have asked law enforcement to patrol around SODA throughout the day as we gather more information.

Dear Parents/Guardians, Between the dates of 1/9/23 and 1/12/22, we will administer iMSSA Assessments to our students in grades 3-8. These assessments are important tools that help us as educators and parents to understand how our students are learning and progressing through the students academic journey. In addition, iMSSAAssessments provide insight to your students readiness - or being on track for readiness- for university and/or the workplace. Cognia assessments are based on academic standards that reflect what your child is expected to learn for the students grade level in our schools. The assessments are untimed tests that include Reading, Language/Usage, and Mathematics. The results from these assessments will help teachers identify the areas in which your child is doing well and learn what additional support or instruction might be needed in other areas. The results will also help your child’s teacher monitor students' academic growth through the school year. You can help your child by sending your child to school each day well rested and ready to learn. We appreciate your continuing support. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child's teacher or the testing coordinator (jjpowell@sodacharter.com) to discuss how you or the school staff can help your child do their best.

Two students from School of Dreams Academy who were the top two spellers from our school’s Spelling Bee back in November attended the District Spelling Bee Friday, January 6, 2023 at the Belen HS Auditorium. Students competed against 8 other schools from Valencia County area. Ariahna Law, an 8th grader, came in 4th place overall, spelling benefited or benefitted as her last correct word. Maiya Mershon, an 8th grader, took 1st place overall. Maiya was in the 3rd round of spelling and all the spellers were eliminated before her, making her the last speller to have to spell correctly. Once she spelled masa correctly, she needed to spell one more word as the champion bee word. Her word was Sanskrit. Sanskrit is a classical language belonging to the Indo-Aryan branch of the Indo-European languages. It arose in South Asia after its predecessor languages had diffused there from the northwest in the late Bronze Age. Maiya will be moving on to the New Mexico State Spelling Bee for a chance to win a spot to the National Bee. Congratulations ladies on a fantastic job! Mrs. Jennifer Nilvo is the SODA Spelling Bee Coordinator and Sponsor that worked with the students for spelling bee.

Congratulations to Team Bio Bosses, the 2022 New Mexico Governor’s STEM Challenge winners being selected by WSP Golden and winning $5,000 that goes to the students on the team and $500 for the teacher. Mrs. Nilvo is the sponsor for the Governor’s STEM Challenge Team, the SODA STEM Research Teacher, and the 22-23 DoD National STEM Ambassador. The team consisted of Gianna Nilvo (11th grader), Porter Hassel-Wells (9th grader), and Brody Brown (9th grader). Gianna and Porter attended the event and presented to the judges. There were 27 participating industry partners ranging from LANL, Chevron, Sandia Labs, NRAO, Virgin Galactic, Boeing, Meta, Molina, Presbyterian, and many more. The Governor’s STEM Challenge presents a question for student teams to solve: Imagine NM as a state known for sustainable and green manufacturing. What innovations or developments could be produced to foster our schools, jobs and communities? The team had to come up with a problem to solve, and design, engineer and build a working prototype, and then test it. The SODA team looked at how there are many chemicals present in cleaning products and personal care products, as well as pharmaceuticals and regular chemicals used in homes, school settings, farming, manufacturing, and industry businesses, which can end up washed down the sink drain finding their way to into water bodies where they may impact the environment and even back inside us. The hypothesis for this engineering design was if a pH probe indicator was coded and placed into the drainage pipes of a sink system, then a valve will be signaled to close when a pH is indicated at ≤ 7, rerouting the acidic liquids. A sink drainage system prototype was engineered that used an Arduino to code a pH probe and motorized ball valve to communicate when chemicals are poured down the drain and divert the fluids into a holding tank 100% of the time with at least 80% of the acidic fluid volume diverted into the holding tank. These chemicals would then be denatured, prepared, and repurposed into items like biofuels or biocleaners. Today, the adequate supply of uncontaminated groundwater and water coming from wastewater going back into surface/ground water is crucial for the health of our NM families, but also for the growth of agriculture production and cutting-edge industry in New Mexico. Some of the team members will be presenting at the upcoming Central New Mexico Regional Research Challenge for spots to State and Regeneron ISEF, Junior Science and Humanities Symposia for a spot to National JSHS, and Central NM Junior Academy of Science for a spot to state starting in February 2023. @VillageofLosLunas @LosLunasDataCenter @SocietyforScience @DoDSTEM @SODAStemResearch
