My Students

Our school was founded in 1960, so we've been around for a while. We are very lucky to have an active PFC as well as students that desire to learn new information. They have a voracious appetite for learning.

We are a Title 1 school which means that 45% of our students are offered free and reduced lunches.

We are trying to give our students another way to learn besides the classroom.

My Project

Our school purchased curriculum from Lawrence Hall of Science, a leader in science education. The Marine Activities, Resources and Education offers an opportunity for our whole school to come together and learn about science. From Kinders learning about the Pond Habitat to Fifth Graders studying Open Oceans, each grade has the opportunity to focus on one key aquatic habitat.

Fourth Grade studies the Kelp Forest.

Although we cannot strap scuba gear on them and take them out in the ocean, our students can gather natural beach debris and study what has washed ashore. You would be surprised at how much Kelp Forest evidence there is on a beach.

This field trip will give our students the chance to apply their classroom knowledge to the real world. At the end of the trip, they will be collecting man-made debris for removal. Stewardship of this great big world that we live on must begin with our children.
