In fifth grade we have an opportunity to help others by meeting with the Kindergarteners to read and write book reports once a month. They also work on stem projects and teaching the Kindergarteners beginning coding. We are also privileged to be able to go to Outdoor School in Pescadero for a full week during the school year.
