On Saturday, under the beautiful sunny sky, over 60 students, parents and volunteers gathered in the Grandpa Allen Garden area for another successful garden party. Our school gardener, Ms Zia organized the event and along with friends and community members worked hard to transform the garden area. "It feels so good to be working outside together" - Zia
The volunteers and the students enjoyed fresh fruit smoothies, a library pop-up, painted watercolors and seed giveaways. The team was able to clean up our garden and get it ready for Spring and Summer.

Students in our 7th Theater class performed their original play, The Tale of Two Planets, in our cafeteria on December 13th, 2017. The play tells the story of two families, one that lives on Mars and one that lives on Venus. Venus and Mars are mortal enemies and often fight each other with soccer moves and dance battles. Jazmine, a young girl from Venus, and Chris, a young boy from Mars, meet while flying around and exploring Space. They decide to try to stop the fighting and make their families realize that they are more alike than they are different. Our students wrote, designed, produced, and performed this wonderful production.

Ms. Baronian's 3rd grade class wanted to give to those less fortunate than them this holiday season. They raised $146.83 to buy a dairy goat for a family in Rwanda, Africa and a flock of chicks for another family in Africa (through Heifer International charitable organization). This generous donation will help bring a couple of families of of poverty by providing them with a sustainable source of income. These 3rd graders are being great global citizens!
