This week, grades TK-2 celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday with a week full of fun activities based on Dr. Seuss’ books. It was a great thematic week that crossed all curriculum. Students read Dr. Seuss books such as The Cat in the Hat, Fox in Socks, Wacky , Green Eggs and Ham, and Sleep Book, to name a few.
Monday was Cat in the Hat Day. TK and K made cats in hats, as well as their own Dr. Seuss hat. TK also had a lot of fun rhyming their own names with silly words, making drawings of their favorite book, and making fun predictions about Green eggs and Ham day. Additionally TK and 4th, K and 8th, Second and 5th, and First and 7th read Dr. Seuss books together. Second grade celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday with a little party. The reading pairs received Dr. Seuss bookmarks and stickers for reading so well to each other!
Tuesday was Fox in Socks Day and all students wore crazy socks and crazy hair. There was also a pack of kindergarten foxes on the loose. Mr. Metz also read The Lorax to second grade, and helped them write letters to the Onceler. First grade learned about how Dr. Seuss wrote the Cat and the Hat. It took him a whole year!
, second grade read The Cat and the Hat. They wrote about what they would do if Thing 1 and Thing 2 paid them a visit at their homes. TK and K celebrated Wacky by mixing up their daily schedule and other things in their day.
was our big day with Green Eggs and Ham. We would like to thank all of the parents who brought in donations and helped cook, especially: Mrs. Ramirez, Ms. Luna, Mrs. Cortes, Ms. Dizon, Ms. Kat (Jesse’s aunt), Ms. David, Mrs. Moran, and Mrs. Vela. The green eggs and ham were a big hit with most of the students at least trying them. Thank you again!
Finally we ended our week with Pajama Day. It was a fantastic way to end our week of rhyming, fun, and wackiness.
From the 6th Grade:
In the spirit of service and sacrifice in this Lenten season, the 6th Grade hosted its first ever Lenten Lunch for grades 5-8 on Friday, March 7. The result was a building of community, appreciation for all the Lord has done for us, and an all around good time. 8th Grader, Brandon Arias, had the following to say, "It was a good time, and the waiters and waitresses were solid in making sure we were all taken care of." Lastly, the 6th Grade wants to thank the following people for their support in making this event possible: Ms. Arceneaux and special thanks to our parent volunteers: Mr. and Mrs. Veliz, Mrs. Cabato, Ms. Marquez, Ms. Hernandez, and Ms. Salazar. We couldn't have done it without you, and in the words of Jacob Winters, "Remember that Lent and Ash is not just about putting away the bad things. It is about creating good things and helping the poor and the needy, being kind to people and much more."
