Feb 22, 2015: Library

Our first year participating in the National Geographic Bee was a wonderful success.  The top ten scorers on the written test competed in a fun, challenging and nail-biting bee with the entire fourth grade in attendance.  An overwhelming majority of the students voted to continue this event in the fifth grade! Alex C. from YuMin's class won first place!

The Across Time and Culture Reading Challenge art projects are in and on display in the main campus library.  It is an amazing and impressive gallery of work by our students.  About 200 students in grades K-5 participated. My sincere thanks to all the parents and grandparents who supported these dedicated readers and artists from securing and reading the books to creating such thoughtful artistic responses to their reading.  We celebrated our readers/artists with certificates, rewards, games, cookies and cupcakes!  If you are unable to stop by the library to see the art in person, see the slideshow below.
