Photo of the Week: Happy Mother's Day - First Graders Honor Mothers

The first grade classes shared some special time with their moms to commemorate Mother's Day a bit early.  Each child served their mother a drink and treat. The children also read a note they had written to their moms telling them how loved they are. Happy Mother's Day to our wonderful moms!

5th into 6th Grade Presentation
Date: Thursday, May 12th
Time: 8:10 to 9:00 a.m.
Venue: Edgewood Campus

I would like to personally invite you to a short presentation to help you understand some of the changes you can expect as your child moves into 6th grade. The transition into junior high is exciting and yet can be challenging for both students and parents alike. This forum is designed to give you a better understanding of what to expect as your child enters sixth grade. Hope to see you there!

4th Grade Return From Sacramento
"Wagons Ho!" to Sacramento! 
"It was an amazing trip!" Candy Promprasert said soon after returning.  

The 4th graders of Mrs. Howe and Miss del Carmen's class, joined by Mrs. Reynolds and Mrs. Lottes, spent two nights and three days visiting San Francisco and Sacramento.  Some of the tourist hot spots we  visited during our one-day tour of San Francisco were Pier 39, Chinatown, and the Exploratorium.  

We spent the next two days in Old Sac, as well as visiting the Capitol Building, the Railroad Museum, Sutter's Fort, the Gold Bug Mine, and an old-time schoolhouse.  

When asked about the trip, our students had a few things to say... 

Athena P. said, "I enjoyed going to Pier 39 and it was really fun going down into the mines." 
Huda K. stated, "My favorite part was going to the beautiful Capitol building." 
Shreyas P. said, "My favorite part of the trip was panning for gold because I've never tried it before!"  
Emin T. shared, "I liked when the zoo ladies had the ferret crawling all over them." 
Aycia S. said, "The carriage ride around the city was fantastic!"  
Megan T. stated, "I liked the boat ride around San Francisco Bay."  

The fourth graders want to tell all the younger grades that going to on this trip is definitely something to look forward to!
