Pirate Pizzeria πŸ•


The students in Mrs. McCullough's AgriTech and AgriScience courses at Hilliard MIddle-Senior High School are having quite the learning experience. They have been busy hatching chicks, growing food, building chicken pens, walking chickens on a leash, and making the world a better place. These students are sure to remember the hands-on knowledge they are building!


Freshening Up the Hive

How awesome it is when communities and schools come together to make things more beautiful?! The United Methodist Church came to Yulee Primary School with flowers, shovels, and mulch to 'make a buzz' around the school sign. Thanks so much to these volunteers and their green thumbs!

Engaging Powerful Pirates

Several teachers from Emma Love Hardee Elementary have been participating in their monthly Building Powerful Pirates professional development. Their last Building Powerful Pirates session was focused on engagement and 26 out of 35 teachers attended!

Ms. Bohler (3rd Grade Math) and Ms. Long (4th Grade ELA) at Emma Love Hardee Elementary are bringing more active engagement to their daily lessons. Ms. Bohler and her 3rd-grade math students were representing and interpreting their data by creating pictographs. Ms. Long had her 4th grade ELA students actively engaged while answering questions during their reading lesson.
