Allapattah Flats K-8 students held their own student led conferences, proudly showing off their work from the first 9 weeks. During these conferences, students were able to show a parent or staff member their academic performance on things such as their classroom work and grades, benchmark scores, and progress for the first quarter. Students also talked about many points including how they achieved the grades they received, what grades they plan to get next quarter, and their plan to improve academically. We had a total of 180 parents who came to a conference with their students to get more deeply involved and hear from their students. Pictured Ann and Alyssa Hartman.Read More
ORDER YOUR DVD TODAY FROM HISPANIC HERITAGE NIGHT. COST IS $5. CLICK READ MORE FOR ORDER FORM. On October 17, 2013, Allapattah Flats had its annual Hispanic Heritage Night. Guests who attended were treated to an authentic Hispanic dish, student performances from band and chorus, a student dance performance that crossed grade levels, and a student PowerPoint presentation on a notable Hispanic figure. Guests were also taught how to create a PowerPoint in 12 simple steps from Allapattah’s CTE instructor Mr. Koch. It was a very student oriented event as behind the scenes students were video recording the performances and running the lights and sound.
Fifth grade students from Allapattah Flats K8 School recently visited the Oxbow Eco-center in Port Saint Lucie. The Oxbow staff presentations provided students with information about the importance of water-conservation, nature preservation and the maintenance of “natural Florida”. During their visit, students had the unique opportunity to enhance their understanding of Florida’s complex eco-system through the use of hands-on activities and animated presentations. Pictured are students enjoying the staff presentation.Read More
The Allapattah Flats Media Center hosted a Scholastic Book Fair recently. The excitement mounted as students previewed the fair, wrote out “wish lists” of their favorite titles, drew pictures for a chance to win a book off the fair and invited their families to shop during the Family Event which was the annual Hispanic Heritage celebration. A great time was had by all.Read More
Allapattah’s third graders continue to demonstrate their scientific minds. Recently, students had an opportunity to travel to other classrooms and participate in five different experiments related to matter. Students did experiments with oobleck to demonstrate the states of matter. Another experiment demonstrated the chemical change when a penny is dipped in a vinegar and salt solution. Students made connections relating the Statue of Liberty’s copper material to the copper in a penny. Students had an opportunity to reflect on their learning after the experiments were completed. Third graders look forward to participating in more science experiments throughout the year! Pictured from right to left are Raul Andrews, Mea Quinones, and Miguel Sanchez.Read More
