Triumph Transportation Assessment Group
Hi! Our group is made up of three 5th and three 6th graders. We examined the financial cost and environmental impact of busing and driving in vehicles to school.  We will share a portion of our findings each day.

Did you know 85% of our students ride to school in either a vehicle or a bus?

Fitness Team

Our students performed well yesterday.  Lots more pictures and the some results will be coming in next week's announcements.

Snacks for today are oranges

  • Because Navel Oranges are seedless, they can’t reproduce through pollination and require “budding” or grafting to create new trees.
  • The Washington Navel Orange tree that helped start the California citrus industry is still standing and producing fruit in Riverside, California.
