Every Thursday from 11:30 to 12:00 at our school, we have either Learning Buddies or All School Meeting.  This week, it was Learning Buddies.  The students love having the opportunity to work with younger students and doing projects with them in the classroom.   67 more words

Awesome day today for our fifth grade student council members!  They had their first meeting and were coming up with some great ideas.  I am so appreciative that Amanda Jaffe and Christopher Wai are willing to head up this group and help develop civic mindedness and school spirit through their work.   65 more words
