This all begins at 8:45am!
Walk Through California: 4th grade interactive Social Studies assembly! I really enjoyed the Walk Through U.S. History and certainly wish this was made available when I was in 5th grade. Students dress up, perform, and learn about California History!

We are ever grateful for the time you have given us, be it field trips, classroom time, talent shows, book clubs, committees, lunch, and so much more. There are never enough appreciations. The event begins at 12:45 in the MPR and concludes at 1:15 where you can pick up your children from school. We have full coverage in both yards so teachers can join us, which has always been challenging for us in the past.
