This year, our TK-5th grade students set a goal of $15,000 to collected during their Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser for the American Heart Association. A promise was made by Mrs. Sanchez-Macias and Mrs. Wells that, if students met their $15,000 goal, the ladies would dress up as monsters. Students surpassed their goal by raising over $24,000 to help those afflicted with heart disease. Click the heading above to watch the video of the fundraiser total as it was revealed to the students as well as the exciting Monster Mash "Thriller" dance!!

First grade spent the last few weeks expanding on their NGSS standards and learning about the life cycle of butterflies. We started with caterpillars that grew and grew and morphed into their third chrysalis stage. We patiently waited through their chrysalis stage and watched in awe as they hatched into beautiful butterflies just in time to share with our families at Spring Fling! Today we spent the morning releasing them into our Friendship Garden where they can continue the life cycle. If you’re lucky you may catch one flutter your way!
