Meet Mrs. Godek!

Last week, we welcomed a second teacher to assist Ms. Salo and Mrs. Campbell with our large classes! We are so fortunate to have Mrs. Cindi Godek! She is already busy assisting with paperwork, and encouraging students in Reading Plus. She is not new to St. Johns County. In fact, she worked in St. Johns County Schools as a health tech at Durbin Creek Elementary in previous years. One of the most interesting things about Mrs. Godek is she has a Coca-Cola room in her house, and her son works for the NYPD (students thought this was cool)! We are delighted to have Mrs. Godek join our class!

Reading Plus Champions!

We are entering our 14th week working on Reading Plus activities. Students know that when they finish the week's Reading Plus tasks, they can continue working to do makeup from previous weeks. The goal is to color in all the bars completely with green (see illustration). Between the Silver and the Black day classes, we have over 50 students who have completed ALL assignments for the year, and then some!
