Miss Kristen’s Class

Endangered Animal Facts & Art Display
All year long, students in Miss Kristen's class have been completing "math menus" tasks, and have been earning "money" with their creative mathematical efforts.
This trimester, students have also been learning about endangered animals all around the world, and practicing drawing these animals.
As a culminating project, they each created a poster about an animal of their choice, which are now
displayed along with their art on the wall outside the school.
We invite you to come and take a look at the students' incredible work over the weekend!

And in addition to their amazing work on endangered animals, for every dollar they earned, the "math menus money" magically turned into real money! The class decided to donate their hard-earned dollars to help two of our local animal rescue organizations: Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue and Bird Rescue Center of Sonoma County. Together they earned $253!! 
Way to go students and families for putting your learning to work!


Important! Please complete SUMMER CAMP FORMS if you are
planning on attending this summer.

Cost: $1000-full summer; $350-2 weeks or 10 day drop off; $200-single week or 5 day drop off.

  • To our last year graduates and alumni…in being here you brought not only help, but joy! It is so good to see you. Thank you!
  • To Emma…the coffee saved me! And let’s not get started on the mural. WOW!
  • To Carolyn—I hope you know I could not do any of this without you.
