This week we are learning how to do Japanese drumming (Taiko) during our PE class.  We are also doing Japanese folk dancing.  We are learning from Stuart Paton, an Artist in Residence.

We also have a volunteer, Dan, teaching us about jobs; making money when we get older; wants and needs;  neighborhoods; and businesses.

Next Monday we are going to see the play Stuart Little.

We practiced a school bus evacuation and a fire drill in school.

We had an amazing week!
