All the classrooms are wrapping up the year with their stunning Student Showcase projects. I thought I’d take the opportunity to offer you a glimpse at the work in progress before you see the amazing final products tomorrow night. It’s an event not to be missed! If this post doesn’t convince you of that, maybe a few photos will…
Room 4 -Infant Program-Teacher: Jeannette Luna
The students have been learning about nature and different habitats, so to finish out the school year, we have made beautiful toe-print caterpillars on leaf rubbings. Nature art at its best!
Room 3 -Pre-Kindergarten-Teacher: Jenny Lang
Room 3 has been learning about butterflies! Come by and see their awesome “parts of the butterfly” books.
Room 2 – Pre-Kindergarten-Teacher: Renee Warner
Each student is celebrating our Botany lesson with an embroidered leaf shape on burlap. They are very proud of their work!
Room 1 -Pre-Kindergarten- Teacher: Janet Lindquist Lang
Room 1 has been studying visualization through the camera lens and students are proudly displaying their photography work. Stop by and discover!
Room 6 -Lower Elementary -Teacher: Liz Cossairt
Our Dinosaur Dioramas are a window into the three periods of the Mesozoic Era. You will agree: the dinosaurs and murals are amazing!
Room 8 -Upper Elementary-Teacher: Ruby Cossairt
Following their study of the Missions, students have created clay models of the Santa Barbara Mission.
Room 9 -Middle School
Teachers: Libby Hawkins & Kirsten Dalto
The Middle School has prepared Living Statues from the American Revolution. They have chosen significant figures from this time period to learn about. Ask them their name and watch them come alive!
Art – Colleen McDougal
See the amazing robots the children have made from recycled materials!
Art – Vic Schiro
Mr. Vic’s goal is to advance the children’s innate curiosities and observations of the natural world through the use of high-quality watercolor materials augmented with oil pastels. The children learn the basics of color (the color wheel) and grow their technical skills throughout the school year. Come see the beautiful watercolors!
Cooking – Sara MacCracken
Thanks to a gracious donation from Driscoll’s we have been cooking & baking with lots of berries! We made raspberry blondies, blackberry breakfast cookies & raspberry sorbet. Today we are featuring dinosaur cookies with strawberry cream cheese frosting. Eat em’ up!
Animal Husbandry – Stan Schneider
Students will be walking around this evening with Amber (one of our miniature horses), and Franky and Billy, our pygmy goats.
Garden – Jon Ellis
Samples of produce from the school garden are available. Talk to Jon about his vision for the future of the MSO garden and how the curriculum is presented to our students.
Sign Language – Lisa Batchelder-Hetrick
This year the children in Rooms 1,2,3, and 6 have been learning the basics of A.S.L. We have had lots of fun learning through the use of songs, stories, games and activities.
