Theatricum Botanicum

 The 4th-8th graders went to Will Geer's Theatricum Botanicum in Topanga Canyon to see Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew." During the question/answer portion of the show several of our students asked poignant questions, including how the actors memorized their lines.

Adventures in Tanaka Farms

             On Thursday October 3rd, the elementary class set out on an adventure to Tanaka Frams. We picked deliciously fresh radishes, green beans, carrots, onions, and pumpkins!


J: "I wanted to buy a pumpkin, but it got rotten so I picked a new perfect size one. My favorite part was the carrots. You had to wiggle them out. That was the best!"

MQ: "The farms are cool. They have pumpkins which are fruits. They have corn around the fence. My pumpkin was too big!"

MH: "I had a little pumpkin. It was so hard. It was really tiny and it was green. I'm getting a lot of carrots. Then I got some onions. I was really careful."

E:"It was fun! I loved picking out the pumpkins. There were so many to look at. I really appreciated coming."

D: "My favorite part was when we climbed up the pile of pumpkins and the pumpkins fell down. My favorite vegetable is carrots. You have to grab it, twist it, and pull!"

S:"When I was walking and playing with my friends I felt like a little girl again. When I got to pick my pumpkin, there were so many i couldn't decide."

                                                          ... an October to remember.
