We had a blast celebrating Lunar New Year. This year, we enjoyed Chinese cultural activities and learned more about how our Vietnamese and Korean families celebrate the Lunar New Year. It was great fun for everyone as we welcome the Year of the Rabbit. We thank FAPA and all parent volunteers for taking the time to support this event and serving the schoolwide Chinese meal everyone enjoyed.
Our elementary students did an outstanding job with their Gingerbread House contest. Kindergarten students decorated Christmas trees, while Grades 1 – 2 decorated pre-made houses, and Grades 3 – 5 constructed and decorated their houses. The details, construction of the structures, creativity, and use of candy were exceptional.
LIT representatives will host a Bake Sale every elementary assembly starting in November. Students will have the opportunity to purchase baked items after the assembly. Students may bring $1 - $3 for baked items.
We had a wonderful culmination of Hispanic Heritage Month at Frontiers Academy. Our students made various crafts such as maracas and worry dolls, had cheese quesadillas, watched a beautiful Folklorico performance, received a goodie bag of Mexican candies, and enjoyed fruit paletas (popsicles) at the end of the day.
This campaign unites schools and communities to come together and stand up against bullying and show a unity for kindness, acceptance, and a visible message that no child should ever experience bullying.
We had our first student-led elementary assembly of the school year this week. Our grades 1 and 5 students demonstrated strong language proficiencies in Mandarin and Spanish. It was a great way to kick off our student-led assemblies. We also thank FAPA for coordinating with Costa Mesa Police Station and inviting Officer Torres to visit our school and speak about bike safety to our students as we culminated up our month on “Safety.” Our October theme will be “Respect.”
