Frontiers Academy celebrates Hispanic Heritage Day. It was a day filled with excitement, learning, and genuine appreciation for the rich tapestry of Hispanic culture.
Our students enthusiastically participated in a variety of activities that were both fun and educational. From engaging in crafts that showcased their creativity to playing soccer with gusto, it was a joy to see them immerse themselves wholeheartedly. The salsa dancing lesson added rhythm to their steps and smiles to their faces. And the quesadilla lunch was nothing short of a culinary delight!
Frontiers Academy had our school elections for President and Secretary. It was truly wonderful to see our young citizens actively participating in this democratic process, which closely mirrored real-life elections. Our student went through the complete process (all voluntarily): from registering, receiving their ballot, making an informed decision, casting their vote, and proudly wearing their “I voted” sticker. Such experiences not only impart the value of democracy and responsibility but also pave the way for our students to be informed and active citizens in the future. Given the enthusiasm and commitment shown by our students, we look forward to making this an annual tradition for years to come.
The school was aglow with cultural festivities- from crafting unique lanterns to shaping signature Frontiers Academy mooncakes. The highlight, undoubtedly, was the surprise at the day’s end.

Many of our students also joined the festivities by dressing in traditional attire, adding to the authenticity and beauty of the day

Our Grades 4 – 5 went on their first field trip to the Missions of San Juan Capistrano as it aligned with one of their Social Studies units. This school year, our goal is to connect field trips and classroom learning and curriculum. These field trips are excellent opportunities to provide students with experiences beyond the four walls of their classroom. Our students returned to school excited about the connections they have made and expressed how meaningful the day had been. We plan to provide these opportunities to other grade levels throughout the spring. We thank all our parent volunteer drivers who have made this field trip possible.
