Spring Break "Bulldog Bulletin"

"One Team, No Limits!"

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Bulldog Community,


I hope this bulletin finds you enjoying a wonderful Spring Break. It is important for students to enjoy some relaxation and recreation during this period while preparing to finish the year strong. We will be ready to welcome students back on Monday to begin the most important quarter of the year. The 4th quarter is the culmination of everything we have been learning and building toward. It includes events, celebrations, performances, and of course, state and district testing. I am confident in our plan to prepare all students to reach their maximum potential. Now more than ever, it is important for students to come to school ready to learn and also willing to put in time at home studying. Please remember to monitor your student's Schoology pages and do not hesitate to contact a teacher if you have questions or would like tips regarding anything occurring in the classroom.


Sincerely,


Travis Brown

Principal

REQUIRED INSTRUCTION

St. Johns County School District is required by statute to provide instruction for mental and emotional health education, substance abuse prevention, child trafficking prevention, and healthy relationships/dating violence prevention. Beginning in September, each school will show all students a 45-minute Character Chats lesson. These lessons will focus on the related Pillar of Character and one or more components of the state required instruction. Each lesson was developed by a team of district and school staff. The lessons have been designed to be interactive and include a teacher facilitation guide. A monthly overview, lesson, and guide will be posted in Schoology. Character Chats were designed to be delivered monthly through May.
