A month from now many of our Classical Academy students will be reading Esther Forbes' Johnny Tremain. This Friday our Parent Reading Group will be getting a head start as we discuss this fun and engaging book together. Its always a great time with great food and even a little wine. Hope you can join us.

Fall Colonial Market Fair Day

At the end of every trimester at SLO Classical Academy, we have a special day that encapsulates all that the students have learned over their past term. Every day is different and unique. Last Friday was our wrap-up for the Fall 2008 trimester . . . a Colonial Market Fair Day featuring hands on activity booths created by every classroom, our very own colonial classical quartet, and even colonial dancing. It was an amazing day for students, families and guests.

Below is a growing slide show of pics uploaded to our flickr site . . .

Our next trimester wrap up will be "An Invention Convention" focused on science learning. Stay tuned for the date. . .
