Update 1/9

Happy New Year!


New Policy Change:  Transportation changes must be received, in writing, by 10:00am.  Early checkout must be completed by 2:00pm on M/T/TH/F.  1:00pm on Wednesdays.  These changes are necessary to facilitate the safe dismissal of our students.


We started off with a bang this week beginning all our new curriculum.


Reading – We began our novel study: Number the Stars.    The vocabulary assessment will be on Thursday with the novel assessment on Friday.    Both are for chapters 1 – 8.


Math – Our first topic for math this quarter was multiplication of fractions by whole numbers and mixed numbers.     The assessment for this will be on Wednesday.    We will then begin our geometry unit.


Social Studies – In social studies, we learned about Florida’s involvement in the Civil War and the effect the war had on our State.    We will enrich that by using those facts to write a narrative of what life was like at that time.


Kennedy – Our last field trip for the year will be to Kennedy Space Center.    The date has been set for May 14th.    The cost for both students and chaperones will be $45.     Money and form collection will begin after spring break.   Just wanted to give you a “heads up”.


Important Dates:

  • January 19th – Student Holiday
  • February 2nd – Student Holiday
  • February 16th – Student Holiday
  • February 18th – Wonderful Wednesday
  • March 12th – End of 3rd quarter
