This year will be a great experience for all of us at Oak View. As we transition into a Nature Based Program, we can look forward towards many opportunities that will enrich our learning experiences and bring us closer together as a school family. We have planned many exciting outdoor school field trips and activities which will enhance our understanding of the environment around us and how we interact with it. Our teachers have been diligently working on integrating parts of their curriculum into units which will focus on a nature based topics and issues.
In the spring we will be taking a field trip to Yosemite. This will be a once in a life time opportunity for many of us to enjoy one of our country’s most beautiful parks and learn about its’ many marvels. We will also go on nature hikes, coastal excursions, and many other nature based day trips.
I encourage you all to think about things in this subject area that you would like to learn about. Your teachers and I are always interested in your ideas and we would love to incorporate what you feel is relevant into our lessons. Together we can continue and expand on a school culture which promotes communication and collaboration.
Let’s make this year a great one together. The opportunities await and the future is ours to create. What we make of it is up to us. So, let’s not only make it count but also become an incredible experience! See you outside!
