Our field trip to Casa Ramirez was a huge success! Students in both classes enjoyed learning about ofrendas, altars to those family members who have passed on. Afterward, all students made their own ofrendas and decorated sugar skulls.
The 3rd & 4th grade class project of building a city from recycled materials was a big hit. Students brainstormed what they wanted in a town and then went to work to build it. They did a fabulous job!
November is the month of nursery rhymes for the Kinder-2nd class. Students in both classes will learn about worms and mushrooms, and their role in decomposition.
