Congratulations Destination Imagination Teams

Once again our Destination Imagination teams rocked our county level Destination Imagination tournament. Teams worked week after week to sharpen their communication, creativity, and critical thinking skills and then put their skills on show for a packed house.

Our youngest team of first graders made a stellar debut. Second and third grade students were amazing in the Escape Challenge while our fifth grade students took the spotlight in the Science challenge. This year we had a joint team with Judkins and they stole the show in the Improv Category. All our competing teams are moving on to the state competition in early April. Join me in wishing them luck!

Take a Walk Through History

Big picture
Thanks to your support our 6th grade students took a walk through Ancient Civilizations during the Walk through History assembly. Students became experts on historical figures, traveled to ancient lands, and told stories of old. Fourth and fifth grade students will be participating in their own Walk Through History assemblies later this year.

It's All About That Reflex....Reflex Math That Is!

Shell Beach is excited to be piloting a math program that focuses on developing math fact fluency. Reflex Math is an online math program that incorporates all the best that gaming has to offer: Fun characters, the chance to go "shopping" as you progress, and a variety of levels to keep students at all levels engaged. Reflex Math is just one program that the district may be providing for us next year to help build students' math fact fluency.

A Special Treat as Dinosaur Cave Opens

Our 5th grade classes were the special guests at the ribbon cutting ceremony for the re-opening of Dinosaur Cave Park. Students were treated to games and snacks courtesy of Parks and Recreation prior to the big reveal. This is a memory they will forever treasure! A special thank you to the City of Pismo for working with us to make this happen.
