Student Honor Roll
This week's celebration included special lunchtime concerts by the Band and Orchestra! On Friday, students are in black and orange clothing while Kindergartners parade in costume! PK-4 students were in costume, too.
A Walk to the Park
The Kindergartners took a walking field trip to Fox Park on Thursday, Oct. 23rd. We ended our "Friends" reading unit and celebrated by going there with our "classroom friends." It was a beautiful day!
The Art Institute
Mrs. Pesce took the 8th graders to the Art Institute of Chicago this week. The docent interpreted Paris Street Rainy Day by Caillebotte.
