The Manatees and Middle School had fun celebrating Dia de los Muertos today!  In a collaborative class with Spanish and Art, the students researched holiday masks, designs, and dancing, and then made their own masks and skulls.  Muchas gracias to Mrs. Wolfe y Señora Bibi!

Our 3rd through 8th grade students will be participating in the November 1 National Kid’s Election Day.
The 5th graders registered students in grades 3-8 to vote.  Each 5th year had voter registration cards and a list of 3-4 prospective voters.  They practiced the non-partisan registration process and encouraged candidates to exercise their right to vote; however, students could elect their right not to vote, too.  (A few did!)
Tomorrow, these 3rd through 8th grade registered “voters” will be given a ballot with the 4 (D, R, G, L party) candidates running for the office of President of the United States.  They will cast their anonymous vote after “checking in.”
Results will be posted prior to school ending on November 1.
