We continue reading, By the Great Horn Spoon! This week we savor the last chapter. We play By the Great Horn Spoon Jeopardy and take a comprehension test on Wednesday.


State testing is complete. However, students will have a 4th grade cumulative assessment on Ten Marks. Results will determine individual math assignments for the remainder of the school year.


Students glaze their ceramic California flag. We will have back just in time for the the last day of school! Thank you so much Arts Attack parent helpers. We could use more help. Please consider stopping by from 11:30-12:30 today.
