Maple Mountain football players recently visited Sierra Bonita Elementary. They were able to work with students in small group as well as in whole group settings. Some of the football players read stories and answered a lot of questions from very curious students. Others took part in reader's theaters and modeled great fluency. The football players wanted to set a good example and the students were very glad to receive a visit.

The third graders at Sierra Bonita Elementary had the opportunity to sell Otter Pops during school. They wanted to go on a fantastic field trip snowshoeing-skiing but didn't have the money for it. To help raise money they purchased three large boxes of Otter Pops and each class took a turn selling them during lunch recess. The students would take money with their teachers’ help, snip the ends of the Otter Pops off, and even clean up the wrappers. They sold the Otter Pops for 8 days and they made close to $300.

Thank you to the families and community who supported our school carnival. Faculty, staff and PTA members feel the carnival was a huge success and that a great time was had by all.  Families were able to enjoy exciting inflatable rides and games with prizes.  The silent auction showed some fierce competition among bidders for some wonderful baskets put together by the PTA through donations by the parents of Sierra Bonita Elementary.  Thanks to everyone for their hard work.  We hope everyone had a fantastic experience!
