The Second grade went to the Museum of art in Balboa. They enjoyed the tour very much with Maria who spoke in French with them, kept them entertained and raise their curiosity. The group was very focused. The highlight of this field trip was the exhibition of Frida Kahlo. Frida and Me is a playful circuit with a series of fun activities.The Second Grade A and B were immersed in the life and work of this famous artist. Even the teachers and chaperon had a wonderful time.

The fourth graders have been working on changes to Earth’s surface in science. Mrs. Jacoway (American Science Teacher in Middle School) helped organize a multi-stationed experiment so that the students could work with a variety of types of erosion. They worked collaboratively in groups reading instructions, performing the experiment, and analyzing the results to answer questions.
Science Exploration: The 3A students really put on their thinking caps today! Photos our students designing, building, and testing their bridges. Record so far = 175 pennies!
At SDFAS, students are exposed to a diversity of learning situations. Teachers use cross-disciplinary methods in order to help students build meaningful knowledge. For instance, part of the science program in 1st grade is dedicated to practicing the scientific approach (questioning, observing, experimenting, describing…). During the same activity, students reinvest the vocabulary they have learned and incorporate their knowledge on size and measurement, which is a part of the mathematics program.
