Summer Access to iReady
This summer, Surfside students have the opportunity to be able to use I-ready MyPath lessons at home. I-ready is a Reading and Math program that students have been using at school. Students take three Diagnostic Assessments a year in both Reading and Math. I-ready then creates an individualized learning path for each student focusing on areas and domains that needed additional support. Students will have access to their pathways through July 15th. This is optional, however it is recommended that students spend forty-five minutes or less in their MyPath per week. Please note that we will be unable to make adjustments to student pathways over the summer. If you would like to partake in this opportunity, students will need to visit https://launchpad.classlink.com/brevard. Students will then use their student id numbers to log in (email@example.com). Every student has their own unique password. If your student is unsure of their password, please contact their teacher prior to summer break. Have a wonderful summer!

Additionally, we are accepting applications for students who wish to attend but do not live in our school zone.

Thanks for showing your Panther Pride and for your support!
Bike to School Day
Check out our Intermediate Orchestra
The orchestra students have done a great job adapting to this most unusual year. Due to Covid, students had to take off 10 months of orchestra class. For the past several months we have been rehearsing once a week instead of our normal two times a week. Here is a song called “Dragon Slayer.” I think the students did great considering that due to Covid this performance was the first time they all played together as a group.
How lucky are we to see the launch right from our school playground?
New chicks have hatched!
