Upper Elementary acknowledged the hard work and dedication of another group of graduates. We wish them well as they venture out of our classroom and begin a new chapter in their lives.
The children throughly enjoyed the trip to the Metro Zoo. They were shown slides of the first 100 days of the twin pandas, Jai Pan Pan and Jai Yue Yue. Our guide Jane, interactively introduce the children to many facts about pandas. The country they came from, the answer being China. And did you know pandas live in bamboo forests were they continuously eat for eighteen hours during the course of the day? The babies weigh as much as an apple at birth and grow into adulthood weighing approximately 250 lbs. And after the Panda information session the children ate their lunches outdoors at tables. There was even time left over to walk through part of the zoo to see the polar bear, wolf, snowy owl, swan, white geese and a few other exhibits before returning back to school.
