MARC Bullying Prevention Lesson

 Kindergarten & Grade 5 Students

Students and teachers in grade 5 traveled over to the H. Olive Day School to work collaboratively with kindergarten students on a bullying prevention paired lesson.  As you can see by the pictures below, everyone truly enjoyed partnering up with each other to learn how to prevent bullying from happening in our schools.

Hands on Science

Students in Mrs. McSweeney's class are tending to their outdoor flower garden.  Last fall they planted bulbs and they are flourishing with the help of students.  Students used the recycled rain water to help feed the plants.  Soon they will be integrating math by measuring the height and growth of the flowers. Nice job!  They look amazing in the court yard!

 Mrs. O'Toole's 5th Grade Class 

Hands on Science 

Students in Mrs. O'Toole's class are learning about the phases of the moon. In this activity, the students represent the earth, and they are placing the different phases of the moon around the earth. 

Chefs to School

Students participate in an after school activity at Freeman-Kennedy School.  They are learning about how to make healthy recipes.  They have the opportunity to try new foods and are amazed at how much they like them!  All the recipes are very yummy and nutritious! 

Exciting News From H. Olive Day!

We have some very exciting news from the H. Olive Day School! At a February meeting, the Community Preservation Commission approved using some of their funds to create a new playground and field at HOD. The use of these funds needs to be approved at the Norfolk Town Meeting that will take place on Tuesday, May 7th at 7:00 p.m. at the King Philip Middle School. A new playground will not only provide a safe, accessible and fun place for the children of HOD and the community to play and socialize, but it will also enhance the learning that takes place all day long at HOD!

Have a great weekend with family and friends!
