October 2023

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Happy October! The first quarter of the 2023-2024 school year will be completed on October 13, 2023.

We are all surprised by how fast September has flown by. We have certainly had a fantastic month here. It’s been incredibly busy, but the growth the students have made in just a few short weeks has been astounding. The first round of PM 1 testing in ELA and math have been completed. During the upcoming parent-teacher conference, the teacher will be sharing your student's academic progress for the first quarter.

Thank you for your continuous support!

It is important that your child attends school every day. We understand that students may miss school due to sickness or family emergencies. Please call the school at (941)714-7260 and report the absence of your child. Also, turn in any note from the doctor's office when applicable. THANK YOU!

Kindergarten, First, and Second grade reports cards help families to understand how their child is progressing toward Florida Standards that are most critical to success in the next grade level. The Florida Standards are written based on the skills and knowledge that a student is required to have by the END of the school year. Teachers use a rubric to determine how students are progressing toward mastery of these standards. Families should expect to see their student’s performance level grow during the school year, from a starting score of 1, to a score of 3 or 4 by the end of the school year.

Please feel free to reach out to your student's teacher with any questions or concerns. Thank you!

Recently, our administration has experienced an increase in students sending disrespectful messages to one another using apps such as Snapchat, Instagram, or TikTok. Although, these incidents occur after school hours, they also carry over to school. Therefore, some of our teachers are using valuable instructional time to address these incidents or clean up the aftermath.

Please talk to your student about appropriate social media behavior, the impact disrespectful messages/behavior or cyber-bullying could have on others, and the potential consequences associated with those kind of posts. Also stress that anyone who is found participating or encouraging inappropriate behavior or cyber-bullying, risks significant disciplinary consequences. Some of those consequences could include the involvement of law enforcement, and/or school reassignment.

Students should additionally be reminded of the digital footprint they leave each time they post on social media such as Snapchat, Instagram, or TikTok. It may also have an impact on future college admissions or employment. Our goal is to always help Team Success students learn and grow so that they are prepared for future success.

Listed below are a few tips that may help you assist your child in avoiding inappropriate online activity:

  • Teach your child the appropriate use of social media apps.

  • Monitor any time spent on smartphones or tablets by installing parental monitoring apps such as ScreenTime, mSpy on your child's device.

  • Take your child seriously if he or she reports an uncomfortable online exchange.

Please feel free to contact our Dean of Students, Mr. Cannon (6th-12th grade) or Mr. Ayala (K-5th grade) with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your continuous support!

Team Success would like to make sure that all parents and guardians are aware of the 7th Grade Civics’ class, the End of Course Exam, and the State’s requirements.

Civics is a mandatory class for all Florida middle school students and they must receive a passing grade in order to be promoted to High School. Civics is a tested subject with an End of Course Exam that will make up 30% of the student’s final grade.

The End of Course Exam occurs in May 2024. Here at Team Success we have had outstanding Civic’s scores and passing rates and the civics teacher is confident that with hard work and studying that every Civics student can and will pass the class and their EOC Exam.
