Exciting Campus Updates
We are thrilled at the progress that has been made on our De la Vega Hall Expansion project!
Cardinals in Action
The Honeybees 2 students are enjoying music and movement. They also love center time!

The Tadpoles 2 love learning Spanish with Mr. Stephan, and they love to have fun at recess time!

The Kinderbears will be "traveling" to the beautiful country of Ghana in West Africa for our Mardi Gras program and parade on Friday, February 17! We look forward to learning about Ghana's culture, flag, food, music, animals, weather, landmarks, history, and language. 

In Spanish class, the Fifth Graders assisted the dog detective 🕵🏼‍♀️  in tracking some missing animals. They used prepositional phrases in Spanish during their investigation.

The First Grade class named the animals in a fable, Pollito Tito, and learned that you shouldn't believe everything you read on the internet! 

The 8th Grade music students played a beautiful rendition of the Ukrainian song “Carol of the Bells” at Lessons and Carols in December.

The 3rd Grade class had a fun math review on our first day back after Christmas vacation.

The 8th Graders are preparing presentations on Reconstruction in Louisiana.

Looking Ahead Class Visits
To help students learn more about the next grade level for next school year we will have a “Looking Ahead Class Visit” for students currently enrolled in Tadpoles through Sixth Grade on Friday, January 27, 2023. Students will be welcomed into the next grade level. Teachers will begin with an introduction to the next level classroom and life as a PK4 Rainbow Fish, Kinderbear, First Grader and so on. We look forward to sharing the next grade level with all of the students.

As a current parent, if you would like to take a sneak peek at the next grade level for your child, please schedule your tour today at the following link: Schedule a Tour
