Kaiser Permanente Conflict Management Assembly

On February 20th our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders participated in a Conflict Management assembly provided by the Kaiser Education Foundation.

Robotics with Dash and Dot

Our students are now programming robots during the school day! A class set of Dash and Dot robots and iPads is being used by our students to teach collaboration and innovation. Pairs are presented with challenges and need to use their critical thinking skills to complete the challenge.

Art Classes Begin!

Our art teacher, Seda Sevada began art classes this week. Each class will receive five art lessons over the next two months that will incorporate art history, social studies and other subjects. For their first art lesson, the students drew self portraits that will be part of a large mural in our cafeteria hallway. Each student will have one piece displayed on panels in the cafeteria at our ArtFest in the Spring. Thank you to our PTA and the San Gabriel Educational Foundation (SEF) for sponsoring this program.

Walking School Bus

Don't forget to join us once a month on the Friday of Spirit and Pride at 8:30am for our Walking School Bus. We meet at the North Del Mar fire station to walk to school as a group. Each student also receives a pencil reward.
