During a California Native American presentation by Monte and Dusty Pereira, the 4th Graders had the opportunity to try out some traditional Chumas tribe instruments. The instruments were made out of local plants and animals, such as a turtle shell, deer hide, kelp, seeds from plants, and a coyote paw. They never wasted anything from nature.
Mr. Monte Pereira was sharing with the 4th Graders about all the tribes who lived and live in California. He was also sharing with them how they communicated, since there were over 100 different languages spoken.
The 4th Graders dressed up in clothing that was worn by some California Native American tribes. The two students on the right are dressed in more traditional clothing, before the Europeans arrived and the students on the left are dressed in clothing that was influenced by European customs.
There are multiple opportunities for you to fulfill those parent hours this week and one is happening tonight! Even if you have checked off that parent hours from your "to-do" list, we have some events that are fun, community building and a great way to connect with others. Please help!
Thank you to our current families, students, teachers and staff for making our annual TK/K event a true showcase of our school's primary grades. We had a larger group than in previous years taking a close look at joining our Assumption family! With the buzz around town, we are hopeful that our Kindergarten and TK will be a full program in the next year. Please continue to let folks know to contact the school office for a tour of the school and to come to our Open House January 26. Congrats to our raffle winners the Stables Family.
