Twenty eight parents from Title I Schools have finished a Basic Computer class hosted by Ft. Pierce Magnet School of the Arts and Title I. Parents attended classes twice a week for four weeks to learn basic computer skills and learn to use Microsoft Word. The goal of the program is to help parents to have the skills to help their child with their school work and to enhance the parent’s computer skills. Basic Computer class information is sent out to all parents in Title I schools through a ConnectEd message before the classes begin. More classes are being planned at this time and information will be sent out through the district automated phone system. Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Kerry Padrick, top right, joined in the celebration with parents.
Students in Carmela Innamorato’s kindergarten class at Windmill Point are exploring 3-dimensional shapes in their math class. Pictured, from left, Maria Suarez and Brennen Rausch couldn’t wait to enhance their learning about three-dimensional shapes by using marshmallows and pretzel sticks to compose real world objects.
Kindergarten students at Palm Pointe Educational Research School @ Tradition celebrated the wedding of letters Q and U. The students learned that Q and U are always together so they had a mock wedding to re-enforce this fact. Students all had a part in the celebration as a member of the wedding party or as helpers with the reception after the ceremony. This was a fun learning experience and one they will always remember. Pictured are Trotter Chaisson, left, as the groom and Madison Parrish as the bride.
