Mustang Highlight:

Seacamp

Ms. Morrow’s Marine Biology classes went to Seacamp at Mission Bay on January 29 or January 30. Students had the opportunity to snorkel and seine to look at marine life in our oceans. After lunch, they got on a boat to trawl for marine animals just like scientists. They also looked at plankton through a microscope. Some even saw a grey whale on migration south! Marine Biology is available to 7th and 8th graders and is an elective class. If your student is interested in taking it next school year, make sure they mark it on their electives sheet in April. Thank you School Site Council for helping fund this extraordinary fieldtrip.
