Cardinals in Action

The Honeybees 1 class is in the Spring and Easter spirit this week! We are decorating Easter bunnies and enjoying the weather outside! 

Our 2nd Graders discovered that learning about money is fun when you get to work with a partner to create and present a business plan!

The 4th Grade class had a crazy obstacle course relay race in PE on our newly-restored Cardinal Field this week!

Our First Graders are sharing their love of reading in the Rosenberg Library. 

The students in Aftercare love playing in our after school program ElevateNext!

Our 5th Grade mathematicians explored, illustrated, and built 3D shapes.  

Here is a sneak peek of the 7th Graders rehearsing for their play. The performance is Friday, April 21.
