"The Dreamer" By Pam Muños Ryan

Reviewed by: Carla 2nd Grade

This story is about a boy named Naftali and his sister.

Naftali is the most exciting character.

You should read it because, It was a passion book.

The Mark of Athena By: Rick Riordan

Reviewed by: Josa 5th Grade

This story was about a girl called Annabeth (and six other kids), that were trying to find the "Athena Parthenos."

I think Leo was the most exciting character because, in the beginning he was an Eidolon (who are Gaeas helpers) and he ruined  "New Rome" Camp.

I think you should read this book.  It is really interesting and exciting (and the people have cool powers).

Book Club Week 5

Hello my fellow Fantasticans!

We have reached the very exciting half-way point in our book!

I would like to welcome our two new members.  We are very lucky to finally have them join us!  

There will be no book club next week as we will be on February break. This will be a good time for everyone to catch up on our reading.  Please read through chapter 19.  If we are all caught up by the 26th then we will be right on track for our special activity on the last day!  

Have a wonderful break!

Choose groups to clone to:


We want students to meet exciting people, try something different, discover something about themselves, and see the world from a new perspective; put simply we want students to learn.


There is an inviting atmosphere throughout our school created by happy children, engaged families, and dedicated teachers. As a parent—the opportunity to self-select your child’s peer group, one which is aligned with your family’s values and outlook on the world, is amongst the most important educational decisions you can make.


We provide unparalleled opportunities for children, by immersing them in our working farm, outdoor adventures and a community of adults who respect the natural world.


We take the best of classical education and make it relevant by intertwining the arts with academics, resulting in a synergistic experience that creates deeper meaning. No other form of education provides for an academic experience this enriching, authentic and joyful.


We provide opportunities for children to be challenged while creating an environment that allows them to be healthy, satisfied, and productive community members.


Our school includes a 200-acre farm campus, organic gardens, and a community that values well-balanced children.
