What is Thanksgiving when you are 3? Our PK1 students are maybe a little confused about this wonderful tradition, but they know how special it is.
SDFAS Pre-Elementary team wish you a great Thanksgiving.
Starting November 15th, La Jolla Library will kindly welcome our PK0 to K students’ art productions.
Our fabulous( and very efficient) volunteers, Vanessa and Angela, installed the exhibit. They had the opportunity to have first glance at our young artists works.
This year, a lot of the art works revolves around geometry and basic shapes. What better way to learn about lines or circles than to study the works of Klee, Mondrian, Dubuffet or Kusama. For their works on emotions, our Kindergarteners used Van Gogh, Boutten and Pollock.
Please stop by the library to discover the entire exhibit, we know that you will be impressed.

A growing number of studies suggest that incorporating movement routinely will likely increase students’ engagement, and support their learning. Alternative seating is a way to work on that goal, and a tool to assist teachers in behavior management and on-task behavior. It provides the movement needed within the classroom to improve a child’s sensory modulation and attention.
In KC, SDFAS teacher Laurette Reinhard raised a table so the students can stand. She added big blue gym balls to sit on while they work. Finally, she lowered a table around which students can sit, crisscross or on their knees.
Students who are engaged, focus better and for longer periods of time. They will learn more efficiently in all academic areas, including reading and language arts.
On November 8, 2017 SDFAS pre-elementary parents were invited to see our second mini-forum. Our stars performers this time were the Kindergarteners, and for the first time this year, our three classes of PK1. The presentation started with a dance from our PK1, and we saw future rock stars!
The Kindergarteners demonstrated their mastery of the French language with poems about the fall season, and closed the show with a classic French song “Dans la Forêt lointaine”.
During our last day of school before Fall Break, we celebrated grandparents and special friends by inviting them to participate in our Halloween parties. We took a lot of pictures and did a parade around the whole campus. Then we enjoyed watching the elementary Flash Mob before going back to the classroom for a potluck with all our friends and families. We also had a pumpkin-carving contest. What a day!
