May 10th Weekly Updae
May 10, 2013
Teacher Appreciation Week was this week, and I want to thank all the families for the many gifts, cards, and tokens of appreciation that our teachers received. They were so delighted! Thanks again for all your support and for thinking of them!
Last weekend our two teams took both 1st and 2nd Place in the Plywood Regatta in Dania Beach. Dania Beach (Marine Industries Association of South Florida's) Plywood Regatta. This event is on both Saturday, May 4th (building day) and Sunday, May 5th (racing day). Currently, we have two teams of six registered for this boat building event. The students are all 8th graders. For this event, we have 3 teachers working as chaperones/mentors and faculty advisors: Steve Allen, Yvette Pearson and Carlee Consagra. It should be a good time! Check out their website at http://plywoodregatta.wordpress.com/.
There are also numerous other field trips planned to enhance your child’s educational experience. Please note these dates below. Book Fair is scheduled for May 20-24, and we need volunteers! Book Fair is very important as we take all profits in books to enhance our classroom libraries, and we love being able to offer our students a great variety of books to read. If you can volunteer, please call Ms. Dorey Spero at 561-547-3775.
Graduation information for 8th Grade Parents…Graduates are to report to the Riviera Beach Marina’s Newcomb Hall promptly at 5:30pm on Wednesday, June 6, 2012.
