Rancho Santa Fe students dive into Ocean Weeks

R. Roger Rowe students enjoy Ocean Weeks.

Rancho Santa Fe’s Roger Rowe School kicked off the 21st annual Ocean Weeks on May 20 (Ocean Weeks runs through May 31). Ocean Weeks highlight a year-round integration of ocean science concepts with language arts, social studies, technology, and the fine arts, using the award-winning MARE curriculum from UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science. Andy Nosal hosted a “Sharks!” presentation May 22. This year’s ocean theme Open House will take place on Wednesday, May 29, from 5:30 – 7 p.m., and will highlight art teacher Marika Fagan’s student art show, a demonstration of eighth-grade science teacher Dave Warner, student-constructed underwater Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs), and a host of grade level tables highlighting student habitat studies.
