Going Bananas

As part of a STEM enrichment group activity, students at South Bay conducted a hands-on science experiment with bananas. Students learned about the chemical processes of bananas that make them brown. They created banana “tattoos” to see the chemical process in action and had fun expressing their creative sides.

Literacy Around the World

Literacy Around the World1
March is Pick a Reading Partner month at South Bay, and this year's theme is “Read Around the World.”

As part of this year’s PARP program, each K-5 class has received its own reading passport, filled with blank pages. The pages in the passport are “stamped” with colorful stars when any student in the class participates in “Passport with the Principal.” To participate, the students sign up for a time to read with Principal JoAnn Scott, who then stamps their passport. Each stamp earns extra mileage points for their whole class.
