The 1st grade classes got to go on a field trip to the San Diego Zoo. I helped out as a chaperone, and managed to not lose any of the kids I was in charge of.
We started off with a visit with the Tigers, then took a walkabout in the new Australia section of the Safari Park. As part of the new area, there is an enclosure you can walk around in with some kangaroos and wallabies. I got some great pictures of the little (and not so little) guys.
My wife was awarded Turtleback’s Volunteer of the year at the Friday Flag assembly. Her friend CJ made sure she was at school, by saying she had some tax documents she needed Aliciana to review after the assembly. So, Aliciana was surprised when she got the award.
I also got videos of the kids doing their class cheers during the assembly:
The fourth grade kids started off by playing 3 songs on their recorders. Then they did a play with lots of songs about the gold rush, called “Gold Dust or Bust”.
Rockin’ the recorder:
