The students decorated the pumpkins with silly faces and uplifting messages, and delivered them to Upper School students as a way to serve their older Tartan peers and bring a little extra joy to the school day.
The lesson had students rotate through a host of scientific lab activities to introduce the careful and precise use of instruments, but also for students to reacquaint themselves with the Lower School Science Lab.
Students recently reflected on their time at St. Margaret’s, sharing their thoughts on what it means to be a Tartan, sage advice for new students joining the community and spirited messages to kick off the new year.
St. Margaret’s grade 5 students were given a fond farewell by the Lower School this week, as the Tartans were celebrated at their final Chapel, followed by a clap-out and the traditional red sweater toss.
St. Margaret’s connected with its longtime community partner, The Ecology Center, to support its Nourishing Neighbors program that donates weekly Farm Share Harvest Boxes containing fruits, vegetables, herbs and pantry staples to feed food-insecure families in San Juan Capistrano.
The water consumption unit studied the unique challenges of providing water to millions of Southern California residents, and explored on a personal level what students can do to reduce their own water usage.
Over the next month, St. Margaret’s will lead a schoolwide donation drive for additional needed household supplies, identified in partnership with The Ecology Center, to be added to the Nourishing Neighbors Farm Share Harvest Boxes.
