Pop Your Top

On March 23rd, all of our students gathered me in the quad to relax, read, and “Pop the Top” of a favorite carbonated drink to celebrate Young Authors Week and Read Across America. All week, visitors from our community came and read a favorite book to one of our classes. This favorite tradition at Ekstrand is just one of the many ways we celebrate reading and a love for literacy.


Ekstrand’s Victories at BUSD Math Olympics

This year Ekstrand has much to celebrate as all 8 Bonita elementary schools competed for the top 3 spots in Bonita’s 2013 – 14 Math Olympics. Our 4th and 5th grade teams worked hard to represent our school. On March 22nd, the hard work paid off as our 4th grade celebrated a 2nd place victory and our 5th grade team took 3rd. A big hand goes to our outstanding coaches, 4th grade Chelsea Wyrick, and 5th grade coach Carry Vasile. We are all very proud of all the teams’ hard work. 

5th grade team: Caley Ortiz, Parker Reedy, Bethany Starks, Paige Gutzke, and William Contreras (alternate)

4th grade team: Conner, Lois Um, Nature Reep
