Morse Pond School Receives Four Picnic Tables for Outdoor Learning, Seeks Eight More
Morse Pond School now has the first 4 picnic tables for under one of their tents thanks to donations to our committee! Special thanks to Bob Oliveira for going out in the pouring rain to pick them up and deliver to the school for us!!! Morse Pond School still has an immediate need for funding at least 8 additional picnic tables for their other tent and the school grounds. Picnic tables cost approx between $110 to $160 (depending on the current market and availability) but prices just dropped to the lower end. If you would like to make a donation please make one via check, venmo or PayPal to Falmouth Rotary Club memo "outdoor learning picnic Morse Pond". You can also opt to purchase it yourself and drop at the school or have the committee arrange the delivery or assembly. Just be sure to contact us.
As we move on from stumps and begin to provide longer term infrastructure for outdoor learning we are so grateful for the continued support from our community and schools! Our committee is still taking donations for picnic tables and other needs across all the schools that have been requested by our staff. If you are interested in helping thru volunteer work or financial support please reach out!

Falmouth Outdoor Learning Project Recognizes Mullen-Hall School Teacher, Maureen Tichenor’s Outdoor Lesson for October
Falmouth Outdoor Learning Project Recognizes Mullen-Hall School Teacher, Maureen Tichenor’s Outdoor Lesson for October. This month our outdoor lesson was share by Ms. Tichenor, a veteran Kindergarten teacher and BCBA at with over 22 years of experience
“Ocean’s Day” was an interdisciplinary kindergarten lesson which covered standards in Science, Art, Cooperative Learning, and Listening. Every kindergartener across the district was able to participate by going to Mullen Hall last spring. The focus was on teaching children about the different layers of the ocean and the adaptations marine animals have made to survive. Ms. Tichenor also has ensured that all the kindergarten teams across the district received the shared materials so that this collaboration can continue.
When asked what Ms. Tichenor enjoyed most about this outdoor lesson, she told us that, “The children’s excitement elicited by their hands on exploration of marine life and the seed to learn more that was planted.” Based on the feedback received from children, teachers and families that attend as well as the joy on the student faces it is evident that lesson was loved by all.
Congratulations to Ms. Tichenor!
