How Are We Doing?
Please take a moment to complete a Parent Satisfaction Survey to let us know how we can improve at the school and district level.

Attention Parents: We Can No Longer Accept Money Orders from Winn Dixie.
Please be advised! Winn-Dixie money orders are being returned "Refer To Maker" at several different stores in our area. The banks have seen many of these. We will no longer accept money orders from Winn Dixie as payment for any school fees or fundraisers.
Online Instructional Resources
Some sites require teacher set-up of the class before students have access*. If your child is unable to login with the instructions posted, please contact your child's teacher to make sure the class has been set up for access. If you do not know your child's student ID#, send a note to your child's teacher. Sites that can be accessed directly are listed and linked here. All other sites can be accessed through the Student Portal (student tab) of the district website:
Links to sites we use regularly are also on our school symbaloo page:

Testing Begins March 3
4th and 5th graders will take a Writing Test on March 3.
Parent Portal Issues
The FOCUS website, which hosts our Parent Portal is being moved to a new, faster server. During this process, gradebook processes and other programs which draw data from Focus (Renaissance/AR, Discovery Education, etc.) are affected. We will post on our website and school facebook page when all services have been restored.
New Tests this Year
Our students in grades 3-5 will be taking a new test this year: FSA (Florida State Assessments). Some of the testing 5th grade will do on the computer. There are practice tests available at the following link:
There are also other resources available for parents at this link:
Our media center (library) is open every Thursday until 7 P.M. if you'd like to come and take a practice test, view resources, or familiarize yourself with the type of computers that will be used for the testing.
Battle of the Books
Thanks to those who have allowed their children to participate! We are off to a roaring start! This week, the group passed tests on 5 of the Sunshine State Books with 100% on all five! We currently have 20 students participating and must cut our group down to 15 by the end of this month. They are all doing so well, it will be hard to decide which 15 go to the competition!
Book Buddies Needed
If you have stuffed animals in good condition that your children have outgrown, please consider donating them to our Media Center. We have a donated toy chest all ready for our new guests. Our Kindergarten and First grade students would love to have some book buddies to share their books with.
Thank You to Mrs. Fina and Mrs. Ross for our first Book Buddies!
