5th Grade students are participating in UNICEF's Kid Power program to get active, learn about kids around the world, and help donate food to kids in need. Here are the details: With every 10,00 steps students earn points towards Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food packets (sometimes referred to as RUTF packets or therapeutic food packets) which contain a specially-designed protein and vitamin-rich peanut paste, allowing children who are severely malnourished to be treated successfully in their communities.
Mrs. Boone's TK class visited the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach as part of their unit on marine life. The Aquarium of the Pacific provides multiple opportunities for students to experience marine science outside the classroom. Students were able to learn "hands-on" about sea creatures and their habitats.
