Music Concert Video Online

The music concert video has been posted online by Ms. Sanae Yamaura (Music teacher). It can be found on the Music NVS page. I also posted pics and videos from the Music Concert that I took in our Google Drive Folder.

First Grade Holiday Rotations

The First Grade teachers are putting on some fun holiday themed rotations on Wednesday. Students will be doing crafts, wintery activities, and having a great time! LES will also be having a Holiday Singalong that day. It will be a fun-filled Wednesday before the holiday break!

Holiday Party

A big Thank You to Ola (Noor's mom) and Nadine (Kristina's mom) for organizing our holiday party. I know other parents are helping out and planning the party too. Thank you to everyone! We look forward to a great party on Wednesday. I will take pics and post them online. Our class is so lucky to have such supportive parents who plan such great parties (seriously-- best classroom parties I've ever been to!).

Social Studies

We are looking at different ecosystems and environments around the world. We will look at the characteristics of: tundra, rain forests, deserts, and grasslands. Students will be using Myon, an online book database.

A friendly reminder: Tardies

Thank you for trying your best to arrive on time. I know traffic was terrible this morning! Please be sure to arrive to school on time. I am aware that traffic can be bad, but we have been asked to send any students who arrive after 8am (even 8:05am) to the office for a Tardy slip. Thank you for your cooperation.

Playground After-School

We would like to remind you that the elementary playgrounds are closed until 3:15pm. Once the playground opens at 3:15 all students must be supervised directly by a parent or an adult. Thank you for your support.
