Excitement and pride were palpable at Lodestar’s first Spring EXPO, as students shared their learning from the year with their families and community members. Kindergarten students taught audiences about recycling, reusing, and repurposing as part of their Trash to Treasure performance . Across campus, Lodestar 6th graders were demonstrating and describing their aquaponics systems. 2nd graders explored where food comes from and how it gets transported to us, and 1st graders dug into how weather works. Lighthouse Spring EXPO is happening on June 7th, so come join this special event and experience what students have accomplished this year!

Lighthouse 6th graders had an unforgettable opportunity to work with the chefs at Revolution Foods (our school breakfast and lunch providers here in Oakland) to prepare lunch for the organization’s board members!
After the meal was prepared and enjoyed, students presented about what they did and learned to the board. Arne Duncan, former Education Secretary under President Obama, recently joined the board at Revolution Foods and he was there to enjoy the meal and chat with students — what an amazing opportunity for Lighthouse students to meet someone standing in their corner on the national stage!
