Week of August 13, 2018

Our preplanning week was amazing! You worked hard, were motivated, and open to new ideas. I can't thank you enough. All that hard worked paid off with an epic first day. It was a very smooth day and I saw so many happy children at dismissal.

All teachers need to fill out the Google Form below (by Wednesday). I have embedded it directly into this newsletter. Just click and type in the "your answer" fields. No need to open your Google Drive or a different window, its so easy!

Big picture


On Monday we will be welcoming several dignitaries representing USSSA that will be introducing a brand-new sport that is making its debut in America. Manatee was chosen as ground zero for this event!

The sport is called Baseball5 and it’s a fast-paced team sport where individual skills and hand-eye coordination are highlighted. Baseball5's main goals are to help boost overall sports participation and physical activity among young people. This sport will be showcased at the Women’s Baseball World Cup that is being held August 22nd thru the 31st at the USSSA Space Coast Complex and Manatee gets to play a part of this prestigious event!

Have a great week!
