Happy Hall Schools @ Lomita Park March Newsletter

Director's Message

Happy March, Happy Hall families! I hope that everyone has had a safe and warm winter, as we all look  in anticipation for the arrival of spring and warmer weather.

The main focus this month for our program are two enriching and intriguing topics,  Oceans & Marine Life and Inventions & Inventors. We will also be enjoying springtime weather and fun activities.  

Program Highlights

Engagement Activities: 

This month, our after school program is embracing the dynamic world of “Oceans and Marine Life, as well as Inventions & Inventors,” which marks the exciting Theme 9 and 10 of our curriculum. Among the range of educational STEAM activities planned, some  standout projects the students will get to engage in are as follows: 

TK - K: Students will get to have fun learning some fun coding and use it to have their own little expedition and record their findings on their coding mats. Students will get to use their problem solving skills and creativity to explore and share their amazing discoveries with their friends!

1-2: Students will get to work on creating their own rendition of the Brooklyn Bridge using limited supplies and be able to test out the functionality of their creation! Students will get to use their problem solving skills, creativity skills, and communication skills to work collaboratively with their friends in order to create their very own functional bridge.

3-5:  Students will get to make their very own 3D Angler fish. This hands-on experience is an excellent way for them to delve into the depths of the ocean and understand more about the intricate lives of various marine life that are in our very own waters across the world. 

Professional Development

Last month, our administrative team had the opportunity to attend the California Afterschool Network  conference.  We collaborated with educators from all over California focusing on ways to enrich and engage learning after school.   Using this information, we are able to pass on the knowledge to our fellow teachers and staff, in order to further enhance their skills and knowledge on how to improve our afterschool programs and overall experience for you and your children.  

 During Spring break all teachers will attend a training led by the Happy Hall Admin team. We will share all the fun and learning next month.

Community Events
