Ocean Week is Coming May 16–22, 2014
We Need Parent Help!
Ocean Week is a 22-year tradition here at RSF and needs help in several areas. This is an exciting time—when teachers and science specialists focus on ocean activities, rotating among their grade level classes, conducting field studies, and decorating their classrooms.
Here are several ways that you can help:
- helping to decorate the school in an ocean theme--areas include the entry areas of the PAC, the front office, office display cases, library, and the staff lunchroom (especially for the OW Staff Luncheon!)
- taking photos of events during Ocean Week, i.e., kids dissecting squid, the Ocean Week play, guest speakers, etc. also help assembling pics into slide show
- inviting someone you know who has a water/ocean-related, or environmental, career who might join us as a guest speaker
- collecting sand samples from beaches world-wide (a small zip-lock bag ½ filled with dry sand--labeled with location) for a library sand display
Middle School Student Led Conferences
Student led conferences for Trimester 2 will be held March 17th through the 21st. Middle school teachers will be sending invitations home during the first week of March. The parents of middle school students will be meeting with their child and one middle school teacher during student led conference week. If you have particular questions for a teacher of another class, you may contact the teacher with whom you would like to meet and set up a conference individually.
