Teaching Team Wish List
For the Holidays!
Dear Santa Baby and TerraNichol Parents,
The Teaching Team at TerraNichol Academy has been very nice this school year. As well as Stella Bunny and Valentino. We have spread love, kindness, happiness and patience. We have worked as a team to support and aid our environment by providing our students the education to raise the Earth and not hurt the earth. We stay healthy and eat our growing vegetables and food. We have provided an enriching, creative, safe and nurturing learning lab environment for our students to thrive in their developmental skills. Most of all we love what we do, shaping minds of our future citizens of the world.
We hope you will spread the love and happiness back to us this holiday season by providing some of the items on our AMAZON wish list. We would rather give back to our learning environment with new materials then to have gifts for ourselves. Look even Stella Bunny and Valentino have a Santa Wish list!
PEACE, LOVE AND HAPPINESS
THE TERRANICHOL ACADEMY TEACHING TEAM

Looking Ahead: Important Enrollment Information for 2016-2017 School Year
Enrollment for 2016-2017 School Year
Based on many inquiries to the school about new enrollment for the 2016-2017 school year we will be sending out re-enrollment for our existing students and siblings early in February.Typically we do this in March but because of the volume of interest for next year however we need to evaluate space in the program for new incoming students. Be on the watch for information coming out to all families in February.
Re-enrollment forms and Registration Fee submitted by the deadline will guarantee the student's space for the upcoming school year.
Registration is $375.
Developmental Student Checklist and Goals.
Around the 18th of January.
Miss Terra and Miss Michelle has been working on collecting observational notes, photographs, videos, project panel boards, and learning lab participation and working with each student to assess their learning styles. These tools are the basis for the checklists. We are sure that you will find this developmental checklist both useful and insightful as to how your child learns, activities that they are participating in, and interests while here at school. It will also provide you with much information about your child's skill level as demonstrated at school. The skills are formatted from the Department of Early Childhood Education and are in alignment with our Florida's Next Generation Sunshine Standards. It is important when reviewing this checklist that you realize how a child learns within a group setting may be different than in a one on one setting at home. When reading the checklist you should note that the skills listed should be demonstrated by the conclusion of this school year.
With that in mind you will see a range of beginning skill level to master skill level. Mastery means that students demonstrate the skill close to 100% of the time without needing any assistance. It is important that you read the Master Teacher Teams comments at the bottom of the checklist. Miss Terra and Miss Michelle also took time to highlight to let you know how we have observed your child learning and how they learn best. Incorporating these ideas at home will benefit your child's learning style and progress. The second notation section will let you know the teaching teams short term goals and the skills we are most diligently working towards. We ask that you support our goals and work towards them as well at home to provide consistency between home and school.
We thank you for your continued support of the program.
Sneak Peek of January Learning Labs
The creativity bug will strike when we return inspiring us for International Creativity Month. The students will be showing their artistic sides in both the indoor and outdoor learning labs. The dot project will be in full effect this week as students leave their mark in the atelier (art studio), creating paintings using a variety of materials to make prints. Outdoors students will use watercolors and caps to create colorful paintings. Students will also work as a group on large dot murals called our One Dot Cooperative Mural. Students are encouraged to just make a mark and see where it takes you.
