Inspiring the Innovator

During their recent field trip to the Tech Museum in San Jose, CA., students in fourth, fifth, and seventh grades learned how the progress of technology and science is changing our lives. They spent the day visiting various exhibits regarding bioengineering, cyber security, and robotic coding; they watched an educational IMAX film; and they tested their creativity and problem solving skills with a variety of hands-on activities. The Tech Museum is a great place for students to explore their interests and for students to be inspired to build a better world.

The fifth grade presentation, Walk Through the American Revolution, retold our nation’s beginning. Students, dressed as important historical figures, bringing history to life through a series of team based competitions, re-enactments, music and games.

Parent Teacher Organization

 

As the school year winds down, the Annunciation School Parent Teacher Organization is still going strong, finalizing details for end of year activities while making preparations for the coming year. This dedicated group of women and men work diligently throughout the year to promote a successful school community - where teachers can do their best work, and the students thrive academically, socially, spiritually, physically, and emotionally. PTO works hard as a team to accomplish a multitude of tasks: hospitality, parent education programs, Hot Lunch Program, teacher recognition, room parents, student Christmas Store and Fun Foods, along with providing their support to the art and science docent programs, Have-a-Heart campaign, and other seasonal events. They do all this because they want what is best the students, teachers, and our Annunciation community. Thank you, PTO, for all you do!

Valley Days

The third grade class had a busy day modeling the lives of pioneer children, specifically those who lived in the agricultural community of San Joaquin County during the late 1800s. Valley Days is a living historical educational program through the San Joaquin County Historical Museum that teaches students about local California and American history. Our students were given the opportunity to wear period clothing and step back in time to participate in a variety of hands-on pioneer activities: baking, blacksmithing, farming, crafts, and games.

The afternoon began with the students reciting a special grandparent poem and singing a few songs.
