Best Rally Ever - Friday, December 1, 2017

Our Leadership Team, under the guidance of Mrs. Swantko, put on an incredible Spirit Rally where all grades participated. There was a Lip Sync Performance by Justin Learn, 7th Grade, who wore an Elsa costume from Frozen and sang a hilarious rendition of "Let it Snow". Santa Claus was spreading cheer, good wishes and candy. A fun game was played where Mrs. Swain, Mr. Hunt, Ms. Step, Mr. Wright and Mrs. Ross were wrapped up in toilet paper under the guise of a friendly competition called "Do You Want to be a Snowman". Several awards were given out including Mighty Miner, Canned Food Drive and Jogathon. The students collected over 2600 cans to donate to the Loomis Basin Bread Basket Program. Our students raised over $23,000.00 dollars through many generous pledges for the Jogathon. Please click above to enjoy some fun photos from the rally.

Terrific Trilogy Tour in Downtown Sacramento!

Our 4th Graders had an incredible adventure experiencing the State Capital, California Museum and the Imax Theatre on their latest field trip. The movie was "California's Wildlife Adventure" where Brody Dalton learned a lot about the Bald Eagle which is our State Bird and the history of some of our oldest Redwoods. At the Capital, our students were taken on a tour which even included the Governor's Office. Kaitlyn Watkins was impressed with a statue that was carved from a single block of marble and took the sculptor over six years to complete. Favorite parts were visiting the California Museum where there were several interesting displays regarding the culture and history of our native Maidu Indian Tribe. The Gold Rush and how it impacted the growth and history of San Francisco and Placer County was an especially fun topic. The students learned about the miners way of life and all the tools used in panning for gold. Please click above to enjoy some happy moments!
