Parents were the special guests at a Canyon Country elementary school Friday for a “Celebration of Learning.”

Fourth grade students and their parents participated in California State Standards based activities geared toward math and language arts skill-building at Mitchell Community School, a member of the Sulphur Springs School District.

Each class participating in the event demonstrated a different set of skills they had learned throughout the school year.

“Some rooms are doing science experiments, some are doing social studies,” said fourth grade teacher Janay Callahan.

Callahan’s class designed a series of slideshow presentations focused on California’s different climates, including valleys, deserts and coastal areas.

“They’re really excited to show that to their parents,” Callahan said.

“I did mine on the coast,” said Brandon, a fourth grade student. “It has mountains and it’s really nice and it gets good waves,” he said.

“It’s really fun to show your parents what to do and everything,” said student Daisy Weiss.

“You can quiz them on your multiplication facts and try to beat them. You can do everything that we’re doing in class,” she said.

“We’re also learning about variables and expanding a logarithm, so we’re showing them that,” she said.

The program was started nearly ten years ago by a former teacher, now Pico Canyon principal Laura Banda, at a time when state standards weren’t as demanding, Callahan said.

The event also offers an opportunity for teachers to shed light on how their report card grades will look in two weeks.

“It’s really an eye opener for parents,” she said.
