Grandparent Tea

Mrs. Ross’ first grade class hosted an afternoon tea for their grandparents and special guests to thank them for their love, support, and sharing their time to read with them. 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.

Online safety can be hard to manage without some guidance, which is why the Annunciation Parent Teacher Organization reached out to the #ICANHELP campaign to help educate and empower students on how to use social media responsively.

Congratulations, Science Olympiads!

Congratulations to the Annunciation School Science Olympiad team for placing 10th, out of 51 teams! We are proud of your outstanding representation of Annunciation School!!

Science Olympiad inspires a passion for science and technology through collaboration and teamwork, hands-on experiences, and fun and rewarding competitions. Much like a sports team, science olympiad requires preparation, practice, commitment, and good coaching. In the months prior to the competition, these students began working with their peers and parent volunteer coaches to increase their knowledge and understanding of science concepts and to practice their problem solving skills and science applications.

This academic opportunity would not be possible without our team of staff and parents who volunteer their time and talents to help our students prepare for this rigorous event. Thank you!!

Parent Workshop - Common Core

Matt Haber, from the San Joaquin County Office of Education, provided an insightful workshop for our parents and faculty to help end the Common Core confusion. These new math concepts are designed to prepare all students for success in college, 21st century careers, and life by the time they graduate from high school. Matt’s presentation explored the rationale for the new math standards, and how students, when given the opportunity to explore these new concepts using previous strategies, they will begin to construct their own knowledge. If you were unable to attend this workshop and would like to view Matt Haber’s power point presentation, you can download it HERE. Thank you to our PTO board for organizing this worthwhile parent workshop.
