TEAM SUCCESS NEWSLETTER
March marks the end of Quarter 3. The year is going by fast! We are very excited to announce we will be having our very first Parent Day on Friday, March 10 -- look for the details further down in the newsletter. We hope to see you then.
March also brings Spring Break, a much deserved week off for students and families, teachers and staff. We hope your Spring Break is relaxing and enjoyable. Recharge the batteries, because when we come back on Monday, March 20, it's the start of Quarter 4, Saturday School, and statewide testing season. Lots to do to finish strong!
If you love Team Success as much as we do, please help us spread the word and recruit new families: we are holding our Open House for Prospective Families on Saturday, March 4. There will be tours, games, hot dogs, Girl Scouts, and plenty of opportunities to learn about Team Success and fill out an enrollment application for next year. All are welcome!
Thank you for being a part of our Team Success family!
As always, please feel free to reach out to your child's teachers and to our school staff and administrators in the main office with any questions or concerns.
Open House for Prospective Families - Saturday, March 4 (10 am to 1 pm)
End of Quarter 3
On Thursday, March 9, we celebrate the end of Quarter 3 with a Game and Field Day full of indoor and outdoor teambuilding and collaborative activities for the students. Ask your student about it when they return home that day!
K-12 Parent Day - No school for students on Friday, March 10
Parents are invited to come to school and talk to their child's teachers.
Your child's teachers will be contacting you via Class Dojo to schedule your appointment.
Teachers will be stationed in the West Campus Cafeteria. There will be 10-minute appointments available on a first-come, first-served basis in the morning (between 8:30 am and 12 pm) and the afternoon (1 pm to 3:30 pm). You are encouraged to bring your middle or high school student with you, so you can talk to their teachers together.
Spring Break! (And Spring Packets!)
Spring Break also means that your student will be bringing home their Spring Packets to complete for ELA (grades 3-10, grade 12 honors), math (grades 3-8 plus high school algebra and statistics), civics (grade 7), science (grades 5, 8, and 9), and US History (grade 11).

First and second grades traveled to the Van Wezel Theater in Sarasota to watch a live stage performance of Alice, inspired by Lewis Carroll's classic novel Alice in Wonderland. The students loved the music, the colorful costumes, and the beautiful dances.
Seniors visit MTC and SCF
The Seniors visited the main campus of Manatee Technical College (MTC), as well as the main campus of the State College of Florida (SCF), Manatee-Sarasota. Students toured the facilities and asked questions about the programs offered in both institutions.

Attendance Matters: In school, every day!
Please make sure that your child is in school every day for every class, on time and ready to learn.
Did you know that missing 10% or more of school puts a child in much greater danger of falling behind academically and struggling with reading and math? It also increases the danger of not graduating from high school.
Ten percent is just 2 days a month! That means that being absent just 2 days a month puts your child at greater risk. This is true regardless of whether the absence is excused or unexcused.
So please, in as much as possible, make medical appointments outside school hours and take vacations or trips during school breaks, so your children receive the full benefits of their time at Team Success.
