Rock N Jump Feb 28th at 10am


Posted by MrsDockery | Posted in Information | Posted on February 21, 2017

It’s time to Rock and Jump in Elk Grove Tuesday February 28th at 10 am. The gym let us invade their “Tot Time” so the cost is $15 per couple (plus $2 for Rocking socks if you don’t have a pair). If you are a single jumper we will pair you with someone else for the discount. The best part is they will let you jump for 2 hours!!!

It will save you some time to sign the waiver ahead of time online, otherwise you can do it there.

It’s time to share the love for your school! January 22-28th is National School Choice Week and we want you to promote your love for Elk Grove Virtual Academy. We are going to be rewarding all students who participate by marking a lesson complete in either ART, ED TECH or Language Arts. We are also going to be drawing two winners, one for a Target gift card and the other to win a Movie Night bundle! Hopefully by now you’re wondering how you can help promote your school, right?!

Every student who does atleast one of the following activities will have one lesson marked complete for them. If you complete any of the other activities you’ll also gain an entry towards winning one of the two prizes! Here are the three ways you can get entries:
*Post a review of Elk Grove Virtual Academy on
*Stop by Feickert Elementary on Monday, Jan 23 or Tuesday, Jan 24 and grab some of our EGVA fliers. Leave these around town (at your dentist, at the library, hang them at the grocery store, etc). Snap a photo of the flier left at one of these locations and send the photo to your teacher.
*Complete the attached poster with why you love your school. Snap a photo of it and upload it to your parents social media account (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram). In the posting you will need to put a link to our school website, . Send your teacher a photo of the posting to get an entry!
We can’t wait to see you promote your school next week!

If you click on the reservation link after 9:01 a.m., you will be placed at the end of the waiting room line.
