SCIENCE CLUBS

ThinkScienceLogoGARDEN CLUB
Is your student interested in plants, flowers, and keeping our Ocean Air Garden looking beautiful? If so, the OA Garden Club is the place to be! Students meet with our Science teacher, Mrs. Waters, once per week during lunch to take care of our garden. Be sure to check this page for updates regarding the Garden Club, how to sign-up, and which days the club will meet during the 2015-16 school year.

What does the Garden Need?
We are always looking for extra gloves, seeds, cuttings, soil and watering cans. We have also had donations of worms, praying mantises and ladybugs. Volunteers are always welcome to help us in weeding, watering and planting. Please contact Mrs. Waters at swaters@dmusd.org if you would like to make a donation or have any questions. Or visit her website . . . click here, for more information.

ZOO CREW
Zoo Crew is a lunch club where students can learn about animals and their environment, awareness of the world around us, and the responsibility of maintaining our animal collection in the Science Lab. Zoo Crew members help care for our animal collection. Zoo Crew Managers are experienced animal care givers who schedule, mentor, and oversee the Zoo Crew Keepers care of our animals. Our Managers and Keepers maintain optimal environmental conditions and work toward breeding species to support our animals. They also provide additional support for Zoo Crew Interns to shadow and build skills in animal care. This club is open to all students in third through sixth grade who fill out an application, with the permission of their teacher and parents. Check back for the days that Zoo Crew will be meeting during the 2015-16 school year.

GREEN TEAM
The Green Team at Ocean Air is a group of students who want to keep our school and planet beautiful and conserve our resources. Students will work toward educating us and encouraging us to do our part in recycling, conserving and just picking up after ourselves. Students are in charge of recycling and picking up paper trash around the lunch tables and in the garden.

Who can join Green Team?
Any third through sixth grader is eligible to join. Green Team members are expected to set a good example by recycling and picking up trash when they see it.

What does Green Team do?
Students meet to plan ways to educate and make the Ocean Air campus a Green campus. They look for recycling and pick up paper trash around the lunch tables and garden. Last year we participated in the “Bay to Creek” Beach Clean-up at Torrey Pines State Beach.
