The Wonder Field Trip was WONDERful! I asked the class if they liked the book or the movie better and there was an exact tie! They were both fabulous and such a great message for kicking off kindness week. Thank you parent chaperones and drivers for helping make this field trip a success!
4th Grade has been having so much fun spreading the love this week for Kindness Week! We've done mini projects each day in addition to working on our kindness challenge lists. The class did a "Heart Attack" on junior high where they decorated their lockers with kind notes, inspirational quotes, Bible verses, etc. They have done a campus clean up where they helped locate the owners of sweatshirts and lunch boxes left around campus and also cleaned up trash around the lunch tables and playground. We made a Christmas Tree with beautiful ornaments and love notes for our principals and we painted beautiful kindness rocks with messages that we spread around campus. The students have made me so proud with their kind words and actions all week long!
Thank you to Cathy Breen for bringing back a very special 4th grade tradition. We will be headed to a nursing home in Bressi Ranch called ActivCare on Tuesday, December 19th to Christmas carol and spread holiday cheer. If you are available to drive and chaperone for this event, please sign up on our class volunteer page. The students may bring Christmas accessories (Santa hats, jingle bells, etc.) to wear for this trip.
Two SJA graduates, members of the National Honor Society at CCHS, are currently collecting Christmas gifts for homeless infants and children up to 16 years old. Please submit wrapped gifts indicating the approximate age and gender of the recipient to the box in the front office. Gift and cash donations can be made through December 7th. For additional information please click here. Thank you and God Bless!
