• Equity Spotlight: November 2022: 2nd grade Community PBL
    In 2nd grade, we spend the year building our idea of community. We start at the very beginning of the making of the San Fernando Valley by studying all about rivers, how they are made, where they flow and the plants and animals that grow around this special riparian ecosystem paying special attention to the Los Angeles River.
