Pasadena Patch: What is something you learned this year?
John Blandamer: I learned about the Civil War and all of the battles and some of the famous people. I also learned about the Revolutionary War, Reconstruction and the Korean War. Then we talked about the Great Depression and World War I.
Pasadena Patch: What was your favorite part of this school year?
John: I liked Grandparents Day because I got to see my grandparents and they got to learn what I was doing in school.
Pasadena Patch: What are you most looking forward to next year?

Pasadena Patch: What are you going to do over your summer vacation?
John: I am going to go swimming a lot because I think that is fun. I am also doing a few camps. I am going to golf camp for the first time. I am also going to soccer camp.
