Week in Review

Mrs. Toscano's 5th grade class has been reading the book "Esperanza Rising" and completing a unit of study. As a culmination of this unit, the class celebrated with food, Mexican-themed games, and crafts. Thank you to Mrs. Toscano and her parent volunteers for creating this opportunity for students.
