Young Art Fundraiser fun for Assumption kids

We had 20 kids from Assumption attend the Young Art Fundraiser on Friday, December 13th.
The kids did:
- art lesson
- small clay sculpture
- slime making
- salt art
- lava lamp making
- face painting
And 20% goes back to the school.
It was a wonderful night, thank you to all the families who participated.

Read On!

It’s been busy in the Assumption School library! Students in grades 4 and 5 were invited to be “guest readers” for their classes. The library has already enjoyed the talents of Cameron Grell in Grade 5 and Ricky Fargo in Grade 4. There are even more volunteers extending into December and well into the New Year.

Reading stories aloud is not as easy as it may appear. There are many ingredients involved in creating a successful experience for both the reader and the audience. Some examples include the following: vocal inflection, enunciation, and how to hold a book effectively. It’s very gratifying to see the readers’ enthusiasm as well as the respect the audience shows to those students who are reading aloud. More to come in 2020!

Fourth grade learns about Native Americans with Guest Speaker

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.
