In the uppers grades, we read many books and had many field trips. We read books like Freak the Mighty, Flowers for Algernon, Walk Two Moons, Macbeth, The Pigman, Maniac Magee, The Giver, Beowulf, and part of The Odyssey. Field trips we went to are City Hall, San Jose Tech Museum, Beauty and the Beast, a math play, and The San Francisco Symphony. At City Hall, we helped to pass a law to make McDonalds sell healthier Happy Meals. We helped by showing that even students want healthier meals.
