Happy Whale Day!

Saturday, April 16th, 2016

Our Kindergartners enjoyed a wonderful field trip this week right here in Palos Verdes! Tim and Cathilee Sharretts, grandparents of Kindergartener Hudson Power, helped plan this outing along with Kindergarten Teacher Christy Burden. Parent volunteers and Associate Teacher Carol Woo also accompanied the children to the Point Vicente Interpretive Center overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Miss Natalie, a Docent at the Center, explained the different types of whales and their four stomachs, and the Kindergarteners gazed at the skeleton of one of these massive marine mammals. Outside, the children joined the volunteer adult whale counters at their posts and viewed the ocean’s waves through stationary binoculars. Dolphins – and perhaps a whale! – were located by our keen-eyed students. A delicious al fresco lunch was enjoyed by all, compliments of the Sharretts, and complete with a decorated cake exclaiming, “Happy Whale Day!” This outdoor experience was augmented by the hardworking goats from Fire Grazers, Inc. munching the nearby grasses and brush as they helped the City of Rancho Palos Verdes clear and reduce fire hazards!
