Student Life


As many of you have heard on World News, the country of Australia is under fire emergency. They are experiencing a huge amount of fire destruction unlike anything before. It so happens that we have a family that hails from the land down under and they made a trip there over the holiday break. Their daughter, Harper Fayle, a 5th grader at El Toro HSA, made her very own CNN10 Student News report that was so good that I had to share it with the entire El Toro Community. 

Her parents, Tim and Lia, are very proud of her work as her teacher and all of us are! Thank you Harper for the student perspective of this enormous tragedy.
