The Hoot Owls created a vibrantly colorful Gratitude Tree with their buddies, the fourth grade.

The students worked together to make beautiful fall leaves. They also wrote what they were grateful for during this Thanksgiving season. The tree is filled with so many wonderful expressions of gratitude. Here are just a few: gratitude for our Armed Forces, America, family, Saklan, friends, pets, and much more. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

Mammal Presentation

Last week the second graders invited their parents to come and hear presentations of their mammal reports.

They spoke in front of the audience using note cards to tell information about their mammal.

They then performed a poem called Dogs and Cats and Bears and Bats. Their parents were then invited to try and put their mammal puzzles together which they had created and finally listen to them read their Monster stories. It was a fun morning in second grade.

The Saklan students 3rd through 7th grades created their own Dia de Los Muertos Altar curated by Maestra Ester and Maestra Morales. The students made their own art work to contribute to the altar which were made of bright colors and various designs. The students were excited to learn about Dia de Los Muertos again this year but mostly excited to participate on a larger scale.  If you haven’t checked out the altar, please take a look and enjoy in the main entry way of Saklan.
