A Peek at Our Week

Our Spectacular 1st-3rd Grade Class

June 3, 2016

We worked on our research project, wrote poems about our endangered animal, played with tangrams and geometry and made more block prints! Look for these prints soon!!

Here are the highlights of the week!!
Mary and Sarah from the Timberland Regional Library came to tell us all about the fun happenings this summer. There is so much going on...check it out!!

We had a visit from my good friend (and past OCS parent!) Claudine who is a wildlife biologist. She shared her work as an Earth Hero surveying and documenting important habitats and communicating with lumber companies to help protect wetlands, streams and rivers. We love learning about jobs in the world that address the concerns we are so passionate about solving!

Our trip to Cougar Mountain Zoo was well worth the drive!! Macaws, alpacas, lemurs, wallabies, cranes, cockatoos, tigers...many of which are threatened or endangered species.
