The 4th grade students are learning how to write a good summary, identifying a theme and finding evidence in the text. In math they are learning about mixed and improper fractions. They are also learning how to draw pictures to help solve word problems. In science they are finding magnetic items in their classroom. They discovered that not all metal objects are magnetic. In social studies they are learning about the conquistadors that explored California looking for money and jewels.
We continue to hear great things about our Safety Patrol at Penn.
Recently the patrol had a fabulous holiday party with 1500 patrol kids
hosted by the San Diego Police. They were treated to a day of food and
fun. Many high ranking San Diego City and Police
officials were present to personally thank the patrol squads on the
awesome jobs they do every day for their schools.
The main event was to award school patrols for their outstanding service and to announce the top 3 three ranking patrol
kids in all of San Diego. Our own, Jasmine Rosario, was one of
the three top ranked! She holds the rank of First Major. Jasmine had to
fill out an application, write an essay on her goals for her life, and
go through an interview with the police department.
Our candidate spent a whole day with Officer Crenshaw, our patrol
officer, traveling around the city, riding in the squad car, and
checking out the different jobs required of police officers. Jasmine got
through all of this process with flying colors. Congratulations
Jasmine! Your community applauds your success.
