Curriculum Corner

Study Island & i-Ready

As our school year is progressing quickly, it is important for students to reinforce learned skills through our interactive platforms; Study Island & i-Ready. We also encourage our students to spend time reading leisurely because our improved reading comprehension and vocabulary translate to the classroom.

Accelerated Reading Goals (AR)

We encourage our students to continue completing their AR goals in order to reach 25%. Please reach out to your student's teacher for more information or to help find creative ways to help from home.

Classroom updates

Mrs. Brawner : My class did research on pirates, specifically Blackbeard. They spent the week reading up on multiple pirates, and read Treasure Island in class. They were given the opportunity to get creative and make their own wanted posters, write about what they would do as a pirate and then at the end of the week they dressed as pirates and worked together to complete a treasure hunt.

Cross Country Updates from Coach John

Our team did really well running at the state championships in Lakeland on Friday where Sophia Quintero came 7th in the state for elementary girls.

They also all competed on Tuesday in the conference championships where everyone ran well setting new personal bests and Sophia Quintero came 5th for elementary girls.

Mr. McClellan's Science Spotlight

Check this out!

The kids are always excited to see our science cart roll in their room – and how many people are lucky enough to get a round of applause when that happens in some rooms? Gee – I feel like a scientific David Copperfield sometimes. We continued our studies of forms of energy and energy transformation this week. Here we see one girl exploring the magnetic polarity of the earth with a simple disc magnet. MAGNETISM is one of many forms of energy. We also see this boy and girl exploring the effects and understanding some of the basic concepts of static electricity – another form of energy. Nothing like “hands-on” learning to give experiential teaching the mental mileage the kids need, right?

Also, we are starting Science Olympiad practice next week and wanted parents to be aware of the following times, locations and dates. So here is what we handed out in Friday’s class this week for the Division B kids. Mr. McClellan and Mrs. Standard are heading up the leadership in that endeavor for our school.

“We are pleased to announce that we will begin training for the 2020 Science Olympiad competition on Monday, November 4, 2019. If we are still in the temporary locations, we will meet in St. Cloud. If we are in the new building, we will meet in Mrs. Standard’s classroom from 2:30 to 3:30. We expect to meet every Monday and Wednesday during the week. Mondays will be 2:30 to 3:30, however due to clubs and early day we will get the information about what time we will meet on Wednesdays.

If you still need information on the different events go to this website: https://floridascienceolympiad.org/2019/events/

And we are in division B.

Saturday practices will start on November 9th from 9 am to 1 or 2pm. Parents are needed to help the students train as there are 13 different events and Mr. McClellan and I can not coach all of them even if we wanted to. Parent involvement is essential to the success of our teams. Please contact either Mrs. Standard or Mr. McClellan to let us know if, and when you would be able to help coach.

Dates of the competitions are as follows: Jacksonville is March 28, UCF in April on the 11th, and State is tentatively at UCF on May 9th.

Due to upcoming holidays we are cancelling the following Saturday practices: November 23 and 30 for Thanksgiving. Also, December 21, 28 and January 4 for Winter Break.

Thank you in advance for your interest and helping your children with their interest in Science. We look forward to working with you.”
