Our Spring science-based Learning Celebration will take place Saturday, February 1st at the Power campus. We hope you are able to make it to see the wealth of learning going on this quarter!

Our theme is: Exploring the Natural World.  We begin with an introduction to biomes.  With our focus on Africa, our continent of this month, we then specifically looked at the Grasslands/Savannah.  Your child chose one animal to make art and research and write about.  Then, extended learning comes through selecting a subject of science of their choice and making a book.  This has involved rough draft writing, editing, and final presentations of their work to the class.  Each child loves being on the hot-seat and receiving the attention of their peers for work they are proud of.  We are hopeful these presentation skills might also apply to a moment of getting to present their works to the adults this Saturday.

Wrapping up last week, this letter will be up on our website today!  As we look forward to the brand new happy month of February, there are many opportunities to grow in the spirit of community with our San Tan school family.  Take note!
