It IS better to give than receive!  Students in Mrs. Wheatley's third grade class felt the satisfaction that comes from giving when they tied 13fleece blankets on December 19th.  These blankets were given to the Juvenile Justice Center for their residents.  Parents donated store bought fleece to the service project.  Other parents volunteered to cut and trim the fabric edges.  Other parents volunteered to help the students tie the fleece into blankets.  One student said, "I like it when I can do something for someone else.  I hope they like my blanket."

HELP!  First graders at Sierra Bonita made a gingerbread man today and he ran away! He's about one foot tall, has peppermint eyes, a brown m&m nose, and red and green gumdrop buttons.  He goes by the name of Gingy. If you have any ideas on his whereabouts, please send him back to us.  THANK YOU!

The 3rd grade recently completed research projects. Some of them are on countries, animals or other topics.  Mrs. Christensen's class all did country reports and have been presenting them for the class and parents. They covered things like daily life, capitals, population, and what the country looks like. They have had fun while learning a lot about our world.  They made posters, typed up their reports, and presented them in front of the class. Some students brought in items, money, and food from that country. It was a lot of fun.

Turkey Gobbling Assembly

On November 22, Sierra Bonita students showed their best impression of a turkey gobble in hopes to win a turkey for Thanksgiving Dinner during the Turkey Gobbling Assembly. Each class chose their best gobbler to compete for the grade level turkey in front of the entire school. The world renowned judges did a wonderful job at picking the best gobblers to win the prize! We had a great time not only hearing turkey impressions, but the judges required some gobblers to act like turkeys to decide the winner of some grade levels. Even the faculty had a chance to show their best gobbles!
