WE LOVE DAWG!

May26

For three years running, the fifth graders have focused their philanthropic efforts on DAWG. This year, the fifth graders had a visit from DAWG, a field trip to DAWG, and picked up a new project thanks to a dedicated parent and DAWG volunteer, Lori Cappello. Lori has been involved with DAWG for many years. She helped get the project off the ground, both figuratively and literally, carrying the tiles and items to go in them up to the art room to be assembled. A huge thanks to Lori!

Here are some photos of our experience this year. Please make sure you read the Newzhook article as well! Here’s the link:

Tour of the Santa Barbara Courthouse

April27

As the fifth graders read about the establishment of law and justice during early colonial life in America, they were also reading The Witch of Blackbird Pond, a story about a young woman during the late 1600’s accused of practicing witchcraft in the colony of Connecticut. Tying in with our study of due process and the judicial system, we took a tour of the Santa Barbara Courthouse.
