With smiles and an enthusiastic “Welcome,” Arroyo Vista fifth graders greeted parents and guests on Friday, December 8, and showcased their impressive state projects.
By News Desk
An annual tradition for as long as many can remember, students in grade five study the development of the nation up to 1850, with an emphasis on the people who were already here, when and from where others arrived. The state projects at Arroyo Vista School in South Pasadena this year include floats decorated with natural materials and patterned after Rose Parade floats, PowerPoint presentations, blueprints, stamps, and essays with details about a state’s history, geography, commerce, symbols, sports teams, and more.
Lisa Clark, Reina Rogers, Michelle Taormina, and Erin Wahbe guided and supported the students and their projects. Distinguished guests for the day’s presentations included the 2024 Tournament of Roses Royal Court.
