Creativity in Makerspace

As we count down to our last few classes, I couldn't be prouder of our students and their work. In the past few weeks, our Kindergartners have made butterfly rockets which aligns with their study of butterflies, symmetry and push and pull. First grade built amazing bird houses as part of their animal unit. Second grade created a new species of Marine animal. Fourth grade created Mission Bell Towers/walls and 5th grade designed Satellites as they are now in a space unit. See below for just some of the outstanding work being done in MakerSpace.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email me.

Celebrated in May, Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month recognizes and honors the contributions, achievements, and influence of Asian Americans and Pacific Islander Americans (AAPI) who have shaped the culture and history of the United States. This year, in light of the recent increase of violence and discrimination against AAPI communities, the annual celebration takes on even more importance. AAPI Heritage Month began in 1978 as a weeklong celebration and in 1992 May was permanently designated as the commemorative month. The month of May was chosen to memorialize the arrival of the first known Japanese immigrant to the U.S. on May 7, 1843, and to honor the completion of the transcontinental railroad — built by as many as 20,000 Chinese workers — on May 10, 1869. Books for AAPI heritage month: “The Year of the “Rat”, “Amina’s Voice”, “Same Sun Here”, “Kamala Harris”, “A Map into the World”, “Front Desk” and “Fish with Jimmy”.
