Image result for READING SCHOLARSHIP ACCOUNTS IMAGE

In 2018, the Florida Legislature created the state-funded Reading Scholarship Accounts program to help public school students in third through fifth grade who need to improve their reading skills. Managed by Step Up For Students, a nonprofit scholarship funding organization, this program offers parents access to education savings accounts, worth $500 each. Using these funds, parents can help pay for their eligible student’s approved part-time tutoring, summer and after-school literacy programs, instructional materials, and curriculum related to reading or literacy.

 Who is eligible? Third through fifth grade public school students who scored a 1 or 2 on the third or fourth grade English language arts section of the Florida Standards Assessment in the prior year.

 Families can apply now! Applicants will need their student’s FLEID number and will be asked to upload their student’s Florida Standards Assessment report when applying. Scholarships will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Parents can learn more about this state-funded program here. Or contact Meredith Hinchey at mhinchey@sufs.org for more information.

Fin-tastic Sharks

Mrs. Hager’s second graders were given a pumpkin book report project for Halloween.  Each student had to pick a book and decorate a pumpkin as their favorite character from the book.  They had to do a book report telling about the character and tell what the character did in the book. Students had to present their pumpkin character reports to the class.

Students in grades Kinder - 5th grade enjoyed a visit from Smokey the Bear last Friday.  They learned about wild fires, saw some tools that the Forestry Division uses to put out fires, and took part in an activity showing what trees need in order to survive.

Fifth grade students in Mrs. Okesson's class have been partnering with Mrs. Hudson's first grade class as mentors.  Last week the first grade students, under the watchful eye of the 5th graders, had to use candy pumpkins and toothpicks to build a structure strong enough to hold an apple.

WE ARE GROWING IN STEM

Students in Kinder-5th grade have been learning about plants in STEM Lab. They have watched their plants grow in the garden tower, demonstrated how flowers go through pollination, programed WeDo2.0 robots to demonstrate a bee pollinating a flowering plant, and had fun with spinning illusions.
