The day the lights went out at Soledad!

Students at Rose Ferrero embraced the day by making the best of the situation. The power outage did not stop our upper-grade students from listening to their favorite kindergarten buddy read to them. Students came into the classroom with their flashlights and seized this moment to quietly listen to their kindergarten buddy read to them. Kudos to all students and staff who made the best of the moment by continuing their teaching and students their learning despite the power outage.

Laying down a solid attendance foundation for your child is the key to their educational success!
