SHOW & TELL 
Photo of the Week: Eighth Grader Kayla B., presides over a mock trial at the Superior Court of California, North Justice Center.

Eighth Grade Visits Orange County Courthouse
The 8th graders visited the North Justice Center in Fullerton and witnessed first-hand the administration of justice.  They observed actual court proceedings, visited the jury assembly room, glimpsed the inmates' intake and holding areas, met representatives of the District Attorney's office and the Sherriff's Department.  Our eighth graders then participated in a scripted mock trial with the objective of teaching the students the role of various participants in a courtroom setting (judge, attorney, witness, baliff, clerk, etc).  They then met with a judicial officer to talk to the students about the legal consequences of one's actions.

iPhones, iPads, Blackberries, Droids...I'm Lost
Today, cell phones do so much more than make phone calls and send text messages, but how do we know which of the thousands of apps are actually worth downloading? And once they're downloaded, how do we use them? Join Bob Cohen, Smartphone expert and esteemed technology coach, for an interactive workshop to learn how to make the most of these new technologies.

Third Grade Musical Showcase 
Our Third Graders can also recognize famous masterworks by great composers.  They also improvised dance movements that reflected a specific pattern by Beethoven.  For the last two weeks they have been choreographing a complicated dance to music by Saint-Saens'  work, "Danse Macabre".

On March 31, the Third Graders showed that they are becoming literate musicians.  They did the following things in 6/8 meter:  play instruments to the beat, use the Gordon Rhythmic System to read and speak rhythms, dictate rhythms, and learned to listen critically to discern one rhythm from many other rhythms.
