The year marches on…
The third grade students went on a field trip to Pioneer Village in North Phoenix. During their visit the students toured the living history museum, depicting what Arizona was like back in the Old West during the days of the pioneers.
Surrounded by historic buildings, and 90 acres of unpaved streets, old-fashioned dwellings, and pristine desert, students took a self-guided tour through the town’s blacksmith shop, school house, church, sheriff’s office, and dress shop and learned about the tools and artifacts of Arizona’s early residents.
After panning for gold and a shady picnic lunch, the children witnessed a wild west show featuring costumed characters and live stunts.
It’s your participation in the Food for Thought Program that enabled our students to learn how settlers lived and worked in our diverse frontier. Thank you for providing learning experiences just like this one for our students. Your participation brings education to life!
And finally, our Running Club participated in the 8th annual Nun Run at Kiwanis Park benefiting the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration of Our Lady of Solitude Monastery. All profits from the run assist the Nuns in building their new cloistered Monastery in Tonopah, AZ. Thanks for supporting such a noble cause, Falcons.
