Call to Action! Protect our Schools!

Please call Governor Scott and ask him to save our Title I schools.

We need him to veto HB7069, the education bill that will place the Polk County School District in jeopardy of losing instructional positions and programs geared towards our neediest students. Please encourage your friends, family, and neighbors to do the same.

End of Year Activities

The last few weeks of school are quite exciting. Young scientists are busy with class Science experiments. Our 5th graders had a taste of public speaking in the Tropicana 4-H Speech Contest. Fifth graders taught a 4th grade class how to create online Trading Cards for their St. Augustine research projects using iPads, apps, and Moodle. Now they are moving on to teach other classes! Third graders are busy researching and presenting projects. Your children are so creative and are learning to work together as a team!

We have much to celebrate and fun memories to make at the end of the school year. I hope you will attend the awards celebrations and cheer your child on at Field Day. Please bring your photo ID to check in at the office.

The details about events are attached below. Just click on the picture of the flyer. Remember the last day of school on June 2 is an early dismissal day at 12:30.
