Hall Summer Learning Works
Fun 
At Ocean Avenue Elementary School

 We have had a very busy and exciting first week! To help us get to know  your child(ren), they have been creating all about me stories.  They have also been busy working on math facts and learning about hand pollinators, how they are important and what they actually do.

We had our first field trip to Willard beach on Thursday, July 13th.  We played in the sand, the water and at the playground. We also collected shells and special rocks to bring home. 

Next week,  we have three field trips scheduled!  On Monday, July 17th we will be going to Mayo Street to see a performance of Peter Pan.

On Thursday, July 20th we will take our first trip to the Portland Museum of Art.  We will be learning about many artists and how to create art using different kinds of materials.

Wednesday, July 19th, we will go to the Audubon in Falmouth to learn how insects pollinate different plants.  This will help us all learn how to create and engineer our hand pollinators.

We will be sending notices home for field trips and special events.  Mark your calendars for Wednesday August 9th.  We are having a pancake breakfast for all families and your children get to serve you!

It is going to be a very busy and fun filled summer!  Thank you for sharing your children with us!
