SLWK-8 kindergarten teachers declared that December 11th would be Grinch Day. The students embraced this concept and went all out! Happy Grinch Day!
On Monday, December 7th, the first graders at Manatee Academy were fortunate to have Port St. Lucie’s Mayor Gregory Oravec as a special guest speaker. He talked about the duties and responsibilities he has as our mayor. The students found this very informative and had many questions for him. This was an excellent opportunity for them to continue to learn about the roles leaders have in our community.
REE families came away from Publix with more than a full cart after another great Math Night!
Students had a grade appropriate worksheet to do with their parents or other students. They were rewarded at the end with a sweet math homework pass and a dessert!
A group from our 4th and 5th grade choir caroled the customers as they walked in.
Thank you to Mrs. Henderson, REE’s fabulous Math Coach, for a “delicious” night of learning!
