Social Studies

Tradition Table
What is your favorite family tradition?

The first unit in our Social Studies program included one of our favorite lessons to help students understand how America began and has evolved into a beautiful multicultural mosaic.

The children interviewed their families and created a detailed family tree using pictures and information they gathered. They also then wrote about their favorite family tradition to be showcased along with their tree.

All of their hard work was pulled together into a display that is showcased in our “Family Hall of Fame.”  We enjoyed celebrating our differences by listening to one another as each tree was shared with great pride.

Look both ways before you cross the street!

A BIG thank you to all our community helpers who volunteered their time to ensure that all our children are kept out of harms way!
