• Lori-Anne-Reid Dear Bayshore Families,

      Spring Break is in the air and we often have already accomplished so much this year. Our focus on academics will continue to be strong as we strive to reach our learning goals throughout the rest of the school year.

    This year our 3rd-5th grade students have transitioned to the new Florida Standards and will be assessed on these standards with the Florida Standards Assessments (FSA). Families are encouraged to take advantage of the information and resources available on the Florida Standards Assessment portal (www.FSAssessments.org) and the FDOE website (www.fldoe.org).

    Our 4th and 5th grade students will be taking the writing portion of the FSA on Monday, March 2, 2015. Students in 3rd and 4th grade will take the reading and math portion of the FSA from March 23rd-26th, while 5th grade will finish up their assessment in April. Please see our testing calendar that was sent home in February or page 2 of this newsletter for more details on dates. We know students will do a great job showing off all their hard work.

    Please plan on joining us March 26th at 5:30 p.m. for a very important Community Resource Night. Our families will have the opportunity to visit over 15 community agencies and sponsors that will be here at school sharing valuable information with you!

    Bayshore will also be displaying student’s art work at the St. Lucie County Fair in the Kiwanis Building that depicts this year’s theme of “The Next 50 Years.” The fair runs from February 27th to March 8th and it is located at 15601 West Midway Road, Ft. Pierce. We would love all families to show their support by visiting the Kiwanis School Display Building to see the art work in person, and don’t forget to vote for Bayshore.

    The FSA Reading, Math, and Science tests are a few weeks away. Please take the time to review the schedule on page 2. It is extremely important that unless your child is ill, they are in school on the days of testing. Please do not schedule routine doctor visits or vacations on these critical days. As always, thank you for your continuous involvement and support of your child's education at Bayshore Elementary. We truly appreciate it.
