WEDear Ocean Shore Families,
Hello! This weekend is PEFathon – I hope to see you there! This is really fun event, and one that your whole family can enjoy! I look forward to bringing Alex with me to cheer on the race and represent Ocean Shore with pride! I look forward to seeing you there.
Next week, our students will participate in some events and an assembly in celebration and recognition of Indigenous Peoples’ Day. These are memorable moments and I encourage you to ask your child about their takeaways from the events next week.
Readathon is in full swing! Monday will make the first announcement to compare class totals. Help us make this a fun and healthy competition to promote how exciting reading can be at home! Stay tuned for class total updates next week!
Reflections From My Office:
This week our 8th graders went Yosemite for their coveted signature field trip. What an experience for our kids! Despite having to return a day early due to poor air quality from forest fires, they had an incredible time. I am grateful for the hard work that went into preparing for the trip from fundraising, organizing details and last minute arrangements. The students always arrive back to school with more confidence, composure and cohesion than they had before the left. It is truly a bonding experience, and for many – it will be something they remember forever.
Here are some highlights that their teachers shared with me. If you know an 8th grader, ask them about one of these experiences!
Here are some first experiences that students might have had:
