Dear Loma and CT Families:
My Top 3 Moments of the Week...
- Greeting Mrs. Shoemate’s sleepy but happy 5th graders as they returned from science camp on Friday.
- Watching an EXCITED group of kindergartener board the bus for their first field trip! It sounds like they had a great day at the pumpkin patch!
- Seeing the beautiful “Atmospheric Collages” created by Ms. O’Dea’s 7th grade art students. These incredible works of art were inspired by our Santa Cruz mountains.
