Our kindergarten, first and second graders studied four countries in Europe: Norway, Poland, France and Switzerland. The highlight was definitely the 7 Continents Song! http://www.viewpure.com/K6DSMZ8b3LE?start=0&end=0

October and November
During virtual learning, each school met with their World Cultures classes via Google Meets. Many different topics were covered during this time, including map skills, classrooms across the world, Lunar calendars, Indigenous Peoples' Day, Dia de Los Muertos, (Day of the Dead), Veteran's Day and Diwali. We are so proud of our students for all of their hard work during virtual learning. We know it was not easy to have the in-depth conversations that we would have had in the classroom, but we really appreciate all of you who joined us!

During our time together in September, we focused on Social Emotional Wellness, and the possibility of transitioning to Virtual Learning. We spent time getting to know each other, as well as learning about the 7 Habits of Happy Kids.
