Kristie made hot lunch on Thursday too! A photographer from San Francisco Magazine was in today photographing the kids for an upcoming article, and since hot lunch is such a community event, we were able to take advantage of hot lunch hospitality to display our culinary community for magazine readers.

The Ninja Cats discussed in detail a section of The Wee Free Men – a few pages of the novel that deal with tough ethical dilemmas and interpersonal relationships. Chane recognized the complexity of the story and encouraged the Cats to think deeply about the ideas. They used the microbes to act out the characters’ parts in the story to further their understanding.
