On September 2, 2015, Rio Vista Elementary unveiled the school’s Hidden Garden in a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.  In partnership with EnrichLA, Rio Vista Elementary worked with parents, volunteers and community leaders to revitalize the garden space.  Community leaders, LAUSD leaders, elected officials and corporate sponsors from Comcast NBCUniversal joined the parents, students, teachers and staff in cutting the ribbon to commemorate the joint project launching the new garden space.  Students and guests danced to a song led by EnrichLA’s ranger Jeff.  Guests including LA City Councilmember Paul Krekorian, LAUSD Board Member Scott Schmerelson, and LAUSD Local District Northeast Superintendent Byron Maltez also planted seedlings in the garden as gift to the students.  Instructional Director Maria Nichols and LAUSD Board Member Mr. Schmerelson had an opportunity to sample fresh fruits and vegetables from the garden’s summer harvest. Board members of the Rotary Club of North Hollywood, Studio City Neighborhood Council, Studio City Beautification and Studio City Chamber of Commerce were instrumental in providing support for the garden project.  Board members enjoyed the stroll through the garden and marveled at the beauty of the pumpkins, squash, tomatoes, eggplant and fresh herbs.  Principal Pia Sadaqatmal shared, “This is a day to celebrate a gift from the community – a new space for student learning. In this beautiful space, we celebrate a shared commitment from the community to support the success of all our students.”


Thanks to Enrich LA, Rio Vista families and volunteers for this beautiful edible HIDDEN GARDEN!

Thanks to our community partner Comcast NBCUniversal and the Comcast Foundation for providing new computers to all classrooms!
