The first graders went to the Civic Center on Thursday to see The Cat in the Hat. A big THANKS to our parent volunteers.   

Thanks to Miss Saylor, the Van Meter first graders had the first 3 rows!

The kids were very entertained and very respectful during the performance.  

On Friday, all Van Meter students paid their respect to Officer Carlos Puente-Morales.  

The students were very respectful during the processional.
