J.D. Parker Celebrates Literacy in the Park - Central Park!
On March 9, 2017, J.D. Parker transformed its school into New York City!!
Each hallway represented a different area of New York. The cafeteria was Central Park. Literacy is a walk in the park at JDP! Teachers had literacy work showcased outside their classrooms. Each hallway represented a NYC subway line. Every guest received a subway map on arrival directing his or her to your stop!
Families also hunted for curriculum themed rocks that were hidden around the school as a nod to our local Martin Rocks mania! Students were on the lookout for rocks as these rocks had a question on them. Students then brought the rocks to the front lobby, answered the questions posed on the rocks and received special "surprises" from Dr. Jones and Ms. Hale!
More than 500 people attended. Kids shared their writing, talked with their families about books they’re reading, and celebrated all of their hard work in literacy. The JDP band attended and played the part of street musicians NYC style at different “street corners”! JDP also had their own version of subway art with messages of kindness and encouragement on sticky notes in JDP’s version of New York.
Each student was given just-right book and information on how to join and participate in a J.D. Parker Google Classroom. Over Spring Break students brought home a rock. These rocks were hidden around Stuart. Once students hid their rocks, they logged on to the virtual classroom and provided location hints to their classmates. What FUN students had hiding and finding rocks over break!! The books and Google Classrooms enabled students to share their reading and blog their thoughts with each other and their teachers during their time away from school.

6th Grade IMS Students Explore "Illuminating the Deep"!
The attached photos are of some sixth graders on a field trip to the Lighthouse Arts Center where they observed an exhibit called “Illuminating the Deep” It was very interesting. We learned about the history of diving deep and recording images there before photography was possible. New science methods to “view” things of the deep, were explained and illustrated and students learned about the importance of protecting our waters and the problems that we face today in those regards. They all painted “fish” as part of the solidarity fish project. This trip was made possible by a thoughtful donation for the bus fare that was generated by artist Janeen Mason.
