Ms. Ferraro and her students put on a LIVING MUSEUM of the founders - Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, Sebastian Cermeno, Sebastian Vizcaino, Gaspar de Portola, and Francis Drake. Parents were able to learn about the founders through presentations and enactments by the students.
Scouts from Mission Troop 261 had the opportunity to present the Color Guard at San Gabriel Rotary's Veterans luncheon at the Grapevine. Students from Mission Elementary school also presented cards to the veterans that read "Thank You For Protecting Our Freedom."
While the country celebrated the Pope's visit to Philadelphia, Mission Elementary students made a special connection to the canonization of Father Junipero Serra. Saint Serra was a co-founder of San Gabriel Mission - the 4th of 21 missions to be built in California.
