Valentine’s Day party

Valentine’s Day, 2019: Our school is fun as well as strongly academic.  Every day students play at recess, in PE, after school in our extended hours (no charge)…and on special days when we have celebrations.  Here are images from the Valentine’s Day party organized by our older students, Erika and Janaki. Younger students got gifts […]

Chinese New Year 2019

New students, new experiences

One student moved out of state, so we’re at 43 students now.  Our diversity continues to grow, and we celebrate that. We’ve also had another infusion of world culture – teacher […]
