This school shines. Winter festival rehearsal started when the bell rang and the kids were adorable. The kindergarteners sang Funga Alafia, a West African (Nigeria) song in Yoruba and in English. Funga Alafia translates to "welcomes and greetings" with sweet verses like "My heart welcomes you" and I feel like it warmed everyones heart. All grades had recess together which turned into a chalk fiesta with the younger grades making tiny hopscotch and tic tac toe grids not much bigger than a leaf. There's a chalk picture of a kid flying a kite, the whole alphabet, and a clear view of the Pacific Ocean.
