Lawyers for Literacy
We had a number of lawyers visit our school on
May 20th, and they read to our Preschool,
Kindergarten and 1st grade students. Each student
received books to take home and to add to their
home library. We are promoting Summer Reading
with this effort in addition to our 2nd Spring

Teacher of the Year
The Miami Dolphin organization honored our very own Coach Word (along with a few other schools) as Teacher of the Year with a reception, plaque and tickets for the game! It was great to witness this honor taking place on center field before the game yesterday. The reception was lovely and we had a great time along with his wife. Our Superintendent of Schools, Robert W. Runcie was present to recognize these teachers as well.
We had a great turn out for our Book Fair Family night, Wednesday, December 3, 2014. Thank you everyone who volunteered! We had FREE dinner, a special chorus holiday preview, raffles, and human ice cream sundaes!
