Kindergartners learn about community

Kindergartners from The Children’s School studying what it means to be “a community,” visited businesses and restaurants in La Jolla Shores’ last month to view operations and meet staff. The 5- and 6-year-olds toured Surf Diva, La Jolla Kayak, Barbella Restaurant, Lori Nettleton’s dentist office, Rusty Boardhouse, Yogurt Escape, La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club, Hotel La Jolla, Starbucks and Fire Station 9.

Back in the classroom, the students looked at historic photos of the area, wrote stories, and used their math and art skills to create a large-scale model and map of Avenida de la Playa. They showcased their adventures at a presentation for their parents on Dec. 18.
