Mote Marine Field Trip

Students should wear bathing suits to school, along with a t-shirt, water shoes, and sunscreen. Mote requires "wading shoes", no flip flops allowed.



Thursday, April 6

We will depart campus around 8:30am and return around 2:30.


Bring a packed lunch (unless you returned the form for your child to buy a bagged lunch from the cafeteria)


Be sure to pack:

  • bag lunch if needed
  • water bottle
  • towel
  • School uniform (blue shirt)
  • sneakers



Please join us on Wednesday, April 5th, as the Lower School shows their support for JDRF and our own ODA students who live with Type 1 Diabetes. A Dollar Dress Down Day is being offered on Siesta Key, which means that by making a donation, your child can dress out of school uniform as long as the clothing is school appropriate. Donations can be given to your child's homeroom teacher on April 3rd, 4th, or 5th.

$1 Dress Down Day...


"Earth Day is approaching! The Out-of-Door Lower School will be participating in an Earth Day pledge project that will be turned into something beautiful. We are asking all students to bring in a used, recyclable plastic bottle. The bottle can be any size or shape but should be empty and rinsed out. Please have the bottles to your student’s homeroom teacher by April 6, 2017."
