The lights went out in Soledad!

So what do you do at school? Students at Frank Ledesma Elementary in Ms. Downum-Perez's class gave us some ideas!

Their teacher promised them a flashlight at reading time...

They said it wasn’t dark enough, so they closed the blinds. Lemons into lemonade!

Check out what the other schools were doing in the Student Services Page
