Ms. Hamilton's Masters Project Questionnaire

Hello everyone. I am Kayle Hamilton, and I teach at Mountain Oaks. I am currently getting my masters degree in Environmental Literacy, and would like to take some data for a project I will be heading this year. I would greatly appreciate it if you could take a moment to tell me a bit about your experience with nature. This is for children, parents, and teachers! Click article title to see the questionnaire.

New San Andreas Library Times for Families

In an effort to afford more time and use of the Library for families, please click on article title to see the new schedule. No appointment is required from 9AM to 3PM on your mentor teacher's assigned days, but families are still required to sign in. ALL safety guidelines are still enforced and we still have a limit of people in the library at one time. If the capacity of the library is exceeded, people will be asked to wait outside. We will be observing a maximum of 90 minutes of time in the library for any one family to ensure equitable use of the library. Posted 9/22/20

Lifeskill in Action Round 3

Drum roll please! And the winning life skill card for our third round of Lifeskills In Action is DESMOND FLOYD! Desmond was recognized by his mentor teacher for showing Perseverance in spending a half-hour on one difficult math problem. Congratulations Desmond! Your $25 Amazon gift card is coming your way via snail mail. Desmond is a young man who is in his Senior year at Mountain Oaks. You may have seen the large praying mantis model that he and his father constructed and had on display in the library last Spring before our CoVid remodel. That big bug is another great example of Perseverance. Click article title for more. Posted 9/18/20
