We enjoyed the 2nd grade All Saints Day Pageant and have something to look forward to when our class is in second grade.

On Monday we enjoyed a visit from the Escondido Fire Department and the Ladder Truck they brought to show our students. They were amazed to see the ladder go 100 feet in the air!
