Gold Rush Day

Gold Rush Day is one of our favorite days in the year.  The 4th grade class delight us with performances, songs, activities, and delicious food throughout the day.

The day started with a wonderful performance about how gold was discovered in California and how Gold Rush Fever took over the nation.  Who were the winners and who the losers in the search for riches and finally a historical summary of how California became at state.

Shortly after the students and parents had a chance to participate in Gold Rush related activities.  Students mined for gold, conducted a gold test, did archery, and horse shoe toss games.

And finally…after all of that hard work they were hungry and had a wonderful feast of flap jacks, corn on the cob, corn bread, egg rolls, and much more…..

Thank you Khala Sarwat for a wonderful day, thank you to all of the parents who helped and supported, and mostly thank you to our 4th graders for being their lovely and vivacious selves.

Popcorn, Cupcakes, and Giving

The 5th grade annual Movie Night is becoming a pretty great tradition around here and we couldn’t be any more proud!  When giving and fun go together everyone wins.  The purpose of the Movie Night each year is to raise funds and awareness for GiveLight Foundation and support their mission of serving orphans in the best manner possible.

The concession stand was ready when parents and students arrived.  Students helped selling snacks, selling tickets, and organizing the event.

The movie that the 5th graders chose was The Secret World of Arriety, a movie based on the book The Borrowers by Mary Norton.

The Children had a wonderful time.  Many of them came with blankets and their pajama’s.  Ready to get to bed after a long evening.  Some fell asleep in the middle of the movie as it usually happens.

Thank you Mr. Khan and the 5th grade class for a beautiful evening.  May you all be blessed.

Winter Town Hall Meeting

When families get together to build a strong community, nothing can get in their way.  Our town hall meetings are a way for us to give our parents updates about the happenings in the school, discuss school improvements and areas of concern, and discuss the annual budget for the following year.

We also had the pleasure of our Science Fair winners presenting their projects to the parents.
