 We gathered, we learned together, we celebrated...

Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.

A Week of Wonderful Moments...
To mark the end of their Kindergarten year,
the Yosemite Classroom held its Annual Spring Tea.
Thank you to all who helped make the event a special day!

This morning, gathered in our final all-school meeting for a beautiful
End of Year Ceremony
First the name of each Kinder Student was called. He or she was met by a 3rd Year Student who handed him/her a candle, gave a well-wish, and
escorted him/her to a seat near the other Lower Elementary Students. 
Next, the names of each 3rd Year Student was called. They were met by the 6th Year Students, who handed them a candle, offered a well-wish and escorted them to their seats near the other Upper Elementary Students.      

At the end of the ceremony we congratulated our 6th Year Friends 
and wished them all well as they leave Mill Falls for the last time.

In what is now an annual event, today we held our second 
Student vs. Staff Soccer Match! 
Rescheduled from earlier this week due to the rain, 
we enjoyed a fantastic event together this afternoon on the new field. 

Many thanks are owed to Ms. Lauren and Ms. Laura B - Coaches of the Soccer Club - the team that challenged the Staff to today's match.  The Coaches did a fantastic job of working with the students in this after school club over the last several weeks.  Also a big thanks to TJ Stevens for being the game's referee and of course thanks to our Staff Team!

For those of you who are curious, the Students won 7-5!

Have a wonderful summer, everyone! 

Best wishes to all who are moving on to new experiences next year...
We will miss you!!!
