Springer hosted illustrator of children's books John Parra as this year's visiting author. John joined us by Zoom, and spoke with Middle School Blue and Gray, Lower School Blue and Gray, and Lower School Green Teams separately.
Lower School Green students took a virtual field trip to the San Diego Zoo. Classes were able to connect with live cameras in the zoo to see a variety of animals in action. Afterward, they created two sock puppets - a giraffe and another animal of their choice. They also enjoyed a game of zoo animal bingo.
During Be Your Best Self Week in October, students were joined during recess by Meredith from Skool Aid. Meredith led students in exercise and games. These Lower School Green students played a tag game that reinforced ideas about what is good for our bodies and what is not.
