Happy New Year VPK Families!  Students and teachers alike are refreshed and excited to be back in the classroom. Tuesday flew by with all the adventures Sea Dragons had to share with friends, creative writing , and getting back into our routine. Focus was on challenging choices in our Math and Language neighborhoods. The children stepped up and raised the bar as usual, we not only observed growth in every child… but you could FEEL it! The rest of the week flew by and we are so thankful to be back together and are starting off 2020 on a super positive note.

We are learning about Martin Luther King, having discussions about peace, kindness, freedom, and equality. We were able to go out with our entire school and watch the proud men and women that protect our freedom pass by in the Wounded Warriors ride through the Keys. It was a wonderful moment that reminds us all how truly blessed we are.

Welcome to our newest Sea Dragon Nathan Serpa. VPK circle is getting full and we are loving it !

We have set out on our expedition to Antarctica and are learning about the continent, animals, and amazing research that is happening there. Why will a polar bear and a penguin never be friends? Drop me a line with your answers please 🤗.

We will be celebrating our 100th Day of School on Friday, January 31st with a party. Pizza, fun, creative and educational activities to celebrate the children’s success!


January field trip to Safari Edventure is rescheduled for February- Wednesday, February 12th.
