This year because of the crazy weather the last week of school we had to have a volleyball game instead of the usual kickball game. Sixth-grade played well, but once again it was the teachers that won. Best of luck in Jr. High!
Max Neal and Matthew Scholl were the only two students that were at school every single day. They also never had a tardy any of the days. What an accomplishment. Several other students were recognized as well.
Cody McFarland and Valerie Solorzano were this year's winners of the Principal's Award. It goes to outstanding sixth-grade students that help out and make the school a great place to be.
Why did you decide to become a teacher?: I have always loved teaching kids! I couldn't wait to grow up and have my own kids. Once I did, I enjoyed doing daycare, and then doing a neighborhood preschool for my youngest daughter, and always wished it was my week to teach. When she went to school, I got a job as a Special Ed Technician at her school. I moved with one little boy from kindergarten through third grade. As I did that job it suddenly occurred to me that I could actually become a teacher, with my own class! So I did.
Why did you decide to become a teacher?: I love working with kids. I helped with my little sister's kindergarten class once a week while in high school. I didn't want to be behind a desk everyday or have to travel for work.

Mr. Lai's class worked hard memorizing the 50 States and Capitals. They celebrated with a pizza party and those that memorized the 50 Capitals got to actually shave his head!
Fifth-grade students took students through history to meet famous people. They worked hard memorizing lines and learning facts about their person. Great job!
Mr. Lai's and Mrs. Taylor's class have been technology buddies this year. Today they got together to play at recess.
