The students began the afternoon with a selection of songs, followed by some quality time with their guests, reading stories and enjoying refreshments. Before the afternoon came to an end, students presented Mrs. Ross with a book filled with their papers on what reading means to them. The Grandparent Tea has been a longtime tradition in Mrs. Ross’ first grade class.

California Gold Rush Adventure

The fourth grade class spent three days experiencing life during the California Gold Rush where history all began, at the Coloma Outdoor Discovery School.

Back at camp, the students learned about the social and economic community of early Coloma through stories, songs, and skits. Their overall outdoor experience not only taught the students about California history but the core value of respect: for nature, oneself and others.

Welcome into the Eucharistic community

In the presence of their family, friends and parishioners, the Annunciation second grade students received their First Holy Communion on April 21, 2018. On this holy and joyful occasion, students were united with Jesus in a way that they never have before. As they continue to join us at the Lord's table, may they share more intimately in the faith of our community and continue to discover what it means to live a life of love like Jesus.

Frog and Toad Readers Theater

Frog and Toad Readers Theater is a long time tradition in Mrs. Ross’ first grade class. Readers Theater does not involve fancy costumes or elaborate sets, just students “performing” by reading a script from their favorite Frog and Toad children’s book. The story begins to come alive as students read their script with expression and a few gestures.  Readers Theater enhances the student's reading fluency, comprehension, and self-confidence, all while delighting an audience of proud parents and grandparents.
