Islands Adventure

First Grade had an awesome day on our Islands Adventure.  We boarded the plane in Room 25 and visited 5 Islands along the Ring of Fire.  We went snorkeling in the Galapagos Islands, tasted tropical fruit in Fiji, made Koi Kites in Japan, learned the Haka Dance in New Zealand, and had a delicious Luau in Hawaii.  Thank you to all the parent volunteers to help make this day magical.  We hope you enjoy the video.

Upper School students are collecting kids picture books, chapter books, YA books, adult novels, non-fiction - everything! Books will then be sold in the Middle School entrance over the two days of conferences on March 3 and 4. Every book will cost $1 and the proceeds will be used to support Reading Partners, a literacy tutoring organization.

Please bring in gently used books for the book sale. There will be donation boxes in every division through March 2. Then come shop the sale! Pick up some books to read over spring break!
