Patrols started their first fundraiser of the year. We are selling Dreamette gift cards. This is a really great opportunity for patrols to earn money towards the Washington D.C. trip. The cost of the gift cards are $10 and the value is $10. Dreamette will give us 50% profit so for every gift card we sell for $10 we get $5 back. Please let Ms. Corrie or Mrs. Spence know if you would like to purchase any. We appreciate your support! Click here for more information.
The Band is Back!
Our school has launched a Chorus and Percussion Ensemble for the 2016-2017 school year. We are excited to be able to provide this type of Arts enrichment to our 4th and 5th grade students.
In order to expand this program and continue to create musical opportunities we are looking for gently used instruments (Violins, Ukulele’s, Drums, Flutes, Trumpets, etc.). If you can donate one of these items we would truly appreciate it! Please drop off your donation in the main office!

In an effort to promote reading and everyday literacy in the real-world, the department is excited to announce the launching of the Just Take 20 literacy campaign.
o Just Take 20 will provide Florida families with practical, easy-to-implement reading activities they can do with their children to add 20 minutes of reading to their day.
o The centerpiece of the Just Take 20 program is our custom web application, www.JustTake20.org.
o The website is accessible from a family’s computer, tablet or smart phone and allows families the opportunity to create a customizable literacy plan tailored to their child’s grade level and needs.
o Each family can build its own family profile, score points and earn badges while having fun with various reading and writing activities. Each activity includes tips for struggling readers and is provided in English, Spanish and Creole.
o The campaign also includes a portal for educators to download materials that will engage students and their families in literacy learning.
o The Just Take 20 campaign is available free to all Florida families and K-12 public schools. We hope you will visit www.JustTake20.org.
