La Purisima Mission Field Trip

At long last! The 4th and 5th grade students at the SMMLC went on the coveted La Purisima Mission Field Trip--- a field trip that is enjoyed during the school year by classes from all over California! Today, over 800 fellow students from schools all over the state shared the history of the California Mission System. The SMMLC 4th and 5th graders are deep into California history this school year; today, students saw, in person, much of what we have talked about and learned in class, and continue to talk about and learn, as we make our way through California's rich and diverse history via our English-Language Arts and Social Studies units!

4th 5th Grade "Around the World" Pojects

Today, the 4th and 5th graders presented their "Around the World" Projects. In the 4th and 5th grade, cultural awareness and appreciation are emphasized, as well as cultural diversity being deeply embedded in our national and global history. With that said, 4th and 5th graders researched and presented to the class facts about a chosen country, including how some countries celebrate the holiday season!

Presentations were concluded with many students bringing dishes and desserts specific to their country researched.

We all benefited from the diversity presented to is in both scholarship and cuisine!

Thank you to ALL of the families who joined us!

Guess who got caught being good!

On December 6th, around the world, children wake up to find out if they have been good! Without a doubt, the SMMLC 4th and 5th graders are good and are good friends, as a visitor came to our classroom last night and left fun sheets and yummy treats for us to find first thing this morning!

The 2nd & 3rd graders at SMMLC had visitors today.

The 2nd & 3rd graders at SMMLC had visitors today. Students from UCSB’s Ambassadors for the Environment program used “The Lorax” to teach us about the importance of trees and conservation. Students made a truffula tree and were given milkweed seeds to care for at home. The Ambassadors also left us a potted seed to take care of. They were very impressed by the 2nd and 3rd graders prior knowledge!
