On the Radio
KPCC radio ran a story on high quality Spanish-language books for young children that highlights the work of our school and of our Fall Book Fair partner La Librería. Reporter Deepa Fernandes contacted us after hearing about our Learning Two Languages (LTL) program and our efforts to incorporate high quality Spanish language books into the program. She points to the opening of the bookstore La Librería in Mid-City Los Angeles as an important new resource for schools and for parents raising bilingual children. We're proud to be able to contribute to the vital work of guiding educators and families in laying a strong foundation for children's learning and appreciation of the Spanish language!

HAPPENING AND CELEBRATIONS
Primary Storytelling and Music Morning
What a wonderful morning for our Primary students and their families. Thank you to our Primary teachers, Mr. Kello and Mr. Sacre.
Enjoy a poem by Mr. Wilson and Ms. Thomas:
He stands in the front of us
And tells us his stories
He never reads from a book
He just tells a tale from his head
And from his heart.
He makes us laugh
Not just a simple laugh
But a great, big, belly laugh
His mouth moves this way and that way
Movement with his body
Simple gestures with his hands
And his arms go this way and that way
Repetition, repetition, repetition
The parts and craft of the story
Mr. Sacre’s stories
Makes us think
Of all the stories we have
Inside our head
Inside our hearts
He teaches us that
We are all storytellers
So, what is your story?
