Halloween Week at Pacific

This has been a wonderfully exciting week at Pacific Heights!  The creatures arrived for our Sea-Aquarium, some classes visited the Hazelmere Pumpkin Patch, while others explored Redwood Park.  Our week culminated with Halloween festivities on Friday:  a primary Halloween dance and costume parade for everyone.

The new critters arrived by courier on Wednesday after students spent a great deal of time learning about the different creatures that could be ordered.  Students submitted a wish list and waited patiently for the day of delivery.  The excitement was palpable as the boxes were opened and each creature was revealed.  Students from many classes took part in group table work identifying, and making observations of our new critters.  At the end of the day, all of the critters found a new home in the tank in our foyer.  Be sure to come by and take a look!
