4t grade Forum

By Francis Carlier

The fourth graders began their year expressing their emotions and individuality through an “I Am” poem they each composed in class. In each line they shared their feelings as well as their hopes and dreams for a better future. They are deep thinkers and with this focus, will grow to be world ready.

Sailing Field Trip to Mission Bay Aquatics Center

By Francis Carlier

Our 3rd grade sailing  field trip to Mission Bay Aquatics center was a great success! Upon our arrival, students had a lesson about basic wind reading, parts of a Sabot sail boat, and how to maneuver using the sail and tiller. After our lesson, many students plunged into the bay for a swim test, and Francois and Nicholas impressed everyone with their swimming abilities. Students then had the opportunity to experience three types of boats: a small Sabot ( sailed with a partner) a larger Hobie Cat (sailed with a small group of students and an instructor), and a larger keel boat sailed with an instructor. All the teachers were impressed by students’ independence and willingness to try something new. Great work, third graders! After a long morning of being on the water, we were greeted by a fabulous potluck and lots of different games on the beach organized by our fantastic parents.  Thanks again!
