A little history in action was brought to California fourth graders with a Pioneer Day on Friday, April 15.

Teachers Jackie Howard, Heather Henley, Rando Schwartz, Kelsey Leubbert and Reba Leonard each dressed in clothing similar to that worn in pioneer days while studying the Ooregon Trail with a practical exercise.
