The Summer is for Gardening!

6/5/2023 8:30 am

Come enjoy OP's bounty! Kindergarten, first and second grade classes have concluded their garden investigations, and over the summer, OP's garden becomes a community garden for all of our friends, family, and neighbors to enjoy! Your students have learned about plants, animals and all things garden, and now it is time for your to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Everyone is invited to come harvest whatever is ripe in the garden. We have squash, tomatoes, green beans, peppers, cucumbers, basil, parsley and more. The more you pick, the more the garden will thrive. We only ask that you do not pick flowers. If you don't understand why, ask your student. We welcome families to bring water for the garden and to help weed over the summer. We remind students of lessons learned in kindergarten about wants versus needs. Please pick what you are able to eat and leave the rest for others or come back later. We hope you all have a fabulous summer and that you visit the gardens, so your students can teach you what they've learned and show you a project that they have worked hard on for the last three months. They are so proud of their gardens and would love to show them off! Any questions, please reach out to heather_bullock[at]bellsouth[dot]net.

Huge thank you to Mrs. Bullock for creating such a wonderful garden for our students to learn about and help grow and tend to!

A New Story in the OP Storywalk!

6/5/2023 8:26 am

Come enjoy Cartolessia and the Magical Garden, a story written and illustrated by OP's kindergarten, first, and second grade classes. This is a result of a creative writing activity students worked on in the garden with Mrs. Bullock. We are so proud of your students' collaborative efforts in creating this. They had tons of great ideas, and their pictures bring the story to life. This story will be installed in OP's StoryWalk. The StoryWalk has fifteen numbered stations. It starts at the flagpole, heads toward the media center and wraps the whole way around the building with the fifteenth station in front of the technology trailer in the back of the building.

Make sure you check it out!
