Below you will find a schedule for when our students will be tested. Students will be bringing home letters this week with important information to help them prepare for their tests.

On April 2nd and 3rd, first grade students took a field trip to the Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast in Jensen Beach. They visited 5 exhibits and had a lot of fun exploring and interacting all throughout the museum!
The 5 exhibits first graders experienced were educational and gave students an idea of different jobs around town. The trip correlated with our Next Generation Sunshine State 4th quarter economics standard (beginning economics).
At the ‘Our Town Market,’ students were able to role play shopping for produce, dairy, meats and dry-goods, complete with shopping carts and checkout station. They also had the opportunity to work in the market as a clerk or cashier.
At the ‘Vet Clinic,’ students were able able to play the role of veterinarian. Just like a real veterinarian, students got to wear a lab coat while examining (stuffed) animals. Students also got to view x-rays and apply bandages.
At the ‘Car Care Center,’ students got to see what life is like for a mechanic.
At the ‘Fire Truck,’ students were able to “drive” an authentic 1923 fire truck, turn on the lights, and try on real firefighter gear!
At the ‘Florida Cracker House’ exhibit students got the opportunity to compare houses in Florida to those around the world in the “Guess Which House is Mine” interactive. Students also got a chance to design their own dream homes using the steps a real architect would. First, students drew their blueprints, then they built a small-scale model of their home with blocks, and finally students donned hard hats and yellow construction vests as they used large planks made from recycled plastic to construct a kid-sized home.
Thank you to the chaperones who helped supervise this field trip. The students had a lot of fun learning about jobs around their town!
Get ready! FCAT & EOC’s begin on APRIL 14 and will end on MAY 16. Please refer to the parent newsletter and/or district website for details.Read More
