THE CHALKBOARD: Loma Vista students take SMART trip to Santa Rosa

Hip, Hip, Hooray! A Cinnabar Elementary School parent and student liaison became a citizen by passing the naturalization test in San Francisco, April 4, shares principal Sandy Doyle. According to Doyle, the test consists of 100 questions on United States history and government for which they are expected to answer 10 random ones. “The entire school surprised parent Santy Valverde with a huge congratulations, a school-wide pledge of allegiance, and the national anthem sung by the first-grade students. It was followed by a tearful, appreciative and very excited speech by our newest Cinnabar School community citizen,” Doyle said. The staff room was filled with red, white and blue flowers, cake and decorations to continue the celebration throughout the day to honor her accomplishment.
