Black history is American history, but Black History Month provides the necessary opportunity to dig deeper. This February, we supported students as they learned more, discovered cultural impacts, and followed movements through to the present day. In the classroom we also celebrated and recognized the accomplishments and contributions Black Americans have made for our society. Our goal is to prepare our students to become world citizens who recognize the accomplishments of others with open-mindedness and intellectual curiosity to impart integrity and empathy along the way.
Even in times of Covid19, welcoming students to the school campus means ensuring everyone’s safety. In order to teach students the essential actions in the event of an incident, it is essential to practice regular training sessions, while respecting the rules of distancing. Our fire alarm drill went off perfectly with all of the students safe on the field in less than five minutes. Congratulations to everybody !
Thursday, February 11, 2021 was the 100 day of school. The first graders organized a very special moment for that event. Since the beginning of the school year and every morning, the children count each day of school till 100. They use color sticks in class to represent ones, tenths and hundreds. A routine the children love and an occasion to plan a beautiful event for the 100 days. This year, the first graders realized 100 math challenges, made collections of 100 objects and decorated tee shirts for this occasion.

Bonjour Sci-Chat Educators,
Thank you again for participating in Sci-Chat! It was amazing to see so many children from different schools come together in the Francophone community. Alliance Française de San Diego, Salk Institute, and the Office for Science and Technology of the Embassy of France in the United States appreciate your efforts in sharing this experience with your students.
We are scheduling to do the Sci-Chat again in the future on a quarterly or biannual basis with details coming soon.
We appreciate your time and efforts in closing the distance to keep our Francophone community connected.
Have a wonderful rest of the week.
Alliance Française San Diego, Executive Director
