During the recent family night in the school’s gymnasium, students waved American flags as they sang their favorite patriotic song, “Oh, I Love America.”

Students then sang a song about planets, which coincided with their science unit on astronomy.

A Listening and Learning unit on the history of the Earth inspired students to share 10 of their favorite facts about the planet.

A field trip to a zoo accompanied another Listening and Learning unit about habitats.

All first graders sang “Rules for Living,” a song about the importance of keeping their bodies healthy and strong.

Teachers thanked parents and guests for their support in helping students succeed throughout the year.

At the end of the program, students and their relatives were treated to cookies.
