The school year has just flown by and now it's time to get into the holiday groove with some November activities! It will be a fun month for our 6th graders, who will go on their exciting Science Camp and participate in their 6th grade Walk Through of the Ancient Worlds! Also, be on the lookout for opportunities for families to help out in our Eastbluff Garden. And lastly, we want to wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving with their loved ones as the holidays are coming up fast!
