  • Dia de los Tres Reyes

    Dia de los Tres Reyes

    What a great time we have been having ,in Spanish class, in 2019!! Students everywhere celebrated Three Kings Day by making paper crowns , eating treats donated by the families of Spanish students and learning more about this cultural celebration through discussion and videos.
    Additionally, Students in Mrs. Jacobo’s full year 8th grade Spanish classes joined with Mrs. Donnelly’s Social Studies class for a special celebration of Three Kings Day or Dia de los Tres Reyes. Students in Spanish class developed and shared presentations about the cultural celebration of Dia de Los Tres Reyes.
    This holiday is celebrated every year on January 6th.

    Mrs. Donnelly's class was then invited by “The Three Kings” to sing along in Spanish and play traditional instruments while the Spanish class led everyone in some traditional Three Kings Day songs. Students were then given gifts of giant jelly bean filled candy canes as a “reward” for being good all year and helping others. Finally, the volunteer Three Kings led a trivia game about the history of Three Kings Day . Winners were given more prizes for knowing so much about this fun Hispanic cultural celebration.

  • Operation Beautiful 2018- Updated 11/6

    Operation Beautiful 2018- Updated 11/6

    Operation Beautiful has provided countless opportunities for student growth over the past few years. The idea is to promote positivity by eliminating negative self talk. We encourage students and staff to participate in any way they can.

    The goal is to hold two meetings per month. One meeting is usually a guest speaker and the other is an activity hosted by a school staff member. The meeting topic/activity is anything that you feel will promote positive school culture within our community. We are already planning on having yoga, dance, art, mindfulness, nutritionist, and sport specialists visit us this year. Some examples of teacher led activities will be girls bathroom decorating, vision boards, science, as well as affirmation through literacy.
