Welcome to the First Grade Jungle

May 3, 2017


In Science, first graders have been learning about chicks. Ask your child what he or she has learned!



We have been keeping eggs in our incubator since Spring Break.


Excitement levels are high in first grade! The chicks will spend a few days with us, before returning to the farm.




Our chicks are beginning to hatch!



Many of our first graders have MITT books checked out. This is the last week to have books checked out. Please check your house for any library books, and be sure to send them back to school with your child.

MITT books


On Friday, May 5, First and Second graders will head to the Venice Performing Arts Center. We will be watching the Venice Symphony perform a Young Person's Concert. We plan to leave ODA around 8:45am and should return to campus around 11:30am. Please be sure your child wears his or her blue uniform shirt for the field trip.




On Friday, May 26, First graders will be enjoying a field trip to the Swain Family Farm! We will depart ODA around 9:30am and expect to return around 1pm. We will see our chicks adjusting to their new life on the farm, and also learn about the life and jobs on a farm. Parents are welcome to meet us at the farm and join us on this field trip! Further details will be coming!
