Received a special Thank YOU from Teaticket Elementary School today from Ms. Hamilton's and Ms. Mokeler's classes. We got to see them enjoying the new courtyard picnic table area for outdoor learning!
Thank you to all who helped make these picnic tables a reality! The smiles are all the reward we need!
Totally made our day when we received these 2 thank you notes from Mullen-Hall School and Team Petisca (Mullen Hall)!

The Outdoor Learning Committee is happy to receive voluntary feedback regarding your child's outdoor learning experience this year. This form is for parents and students in the Falmouth Public Schools only. This information is being collected in compliance with our grant funding, the project's impact with COVID, as well as academic and mental health impacts. Please share with us your child's experience with outdoor time at school. We ask that you submit once a week for each child you have. This survey is anonymous, but we do ask for grade and school information to ensure we are getting equitable data. We may share general information in trends from this survey with school administration however no private or identifiable information will be shared. This survey is in no way being given by the Falmouth Public Schools. Thank you for your support and feedback!

We would love for our community to nominate ALL 7 of our schools for the "Your School Rules" Boston 25 News contest! Share about a school program we are all proud of: our outdoor learning project or even other reasons!

In collaboration with the Outdoor Learning Committee, The Office of Teaching & Learning is excited to announce a new professional learning opportunity. This experience begins with two sessions from Green Schoolyards America that will be offered virtually and synchronously (with an archived recording to be made available after each session). Then, you have a chance to apply your learning with students.
In order to earn PDPs, you will need to do the following to demonstrate completion of the professional learning opportunity:
View the two sessions
Create an outdoor learning lesson
Teach your lesson on your school’s campus
Share evidence -- You can either submit student work or photos of the lesson.
Please visit SmartPD to register. You will find both of the opportunities under the category of "other."
We look forward to you joining us on this adventure!
