STAR Testing is Here

It’s here again… if your child has reached at least 2nd grade, they will be spending the next week or so testing.  STAR Testing begins this week in the Las Virgenes School District. The only thing I like about this time of year is there is usually no homework sent home.  No homework is a […]

The following year, the All-American Soap Box Derby was born, attracting hundreds of kids who created all different sorts of homemade cars. The winner was Robert Turner (from Indiana), who fashioned his […]

Santa Monica Mountains Science Festival

The Great Race Is Coming!

The Great Race is coming up on March 23.  I have participated in this race with my husband for many years and it is a great race.  We do the 5K, but we have friends who say the half marathon is a great course.  The after-race party is fantastic.  The past two years our kids […]
