Yo Ho, Yo Ho, an Engineer for 3rd Grade: Mr. Brian Hook
Here's a few pictures from our time with Mr. Brian Hook, electrical engineer, last April. Our 3rd graders were so enthralled with his "What is an Engineer?" presentation that you could hear a pin drop! See for yourself how he had them "HOOKED!" Here's his fantastic presentation: https://www.youtube..com/watch?v=fPuixgFwOq0

UCPLA's Resident Santa Comes
Our friendship that began with UCPLA Literary Inclusion Project during 2014-2015's One School One Book with Sharon Draper's Out of My Mind, continues. Santa came to town! He spent the day with us, shared a story and visited our classrooms. He even brought our friend, Barron the therapy dog, back to see us. What joy!
