Mariposa Elementary celebrated its PBIS by having a Pokemon Day. Students paid 20 Butterfly Bucks to participate in Pokemon Day where they created a unique Pokemon with special powers and a Poke-Ball and then played charades as they became a Pokemon.
Maurice Johnson and Tristan Coe are working hard to create their Pokemon. Jha’keriah Galloway, Brianna Granja, and Beverly Garay are discussing their Pokemon with each other. Anaztajah Rodriguez is finishing up her Pokemon while Jovaughn Hall is just beginning to think about how his Pokemon will look and what special powers it will have. Overall, it was a huge success!
On December 3, 2016, Palm Pointe Educational Research School @ Tradition celebrated its annual Breakfast with Santa. The event was a huge success with families enjoying a delicious pancake breakfast, kids making holiday crafts, a face painting booth, raffles, pictures with Santa, and holiday songs performed by Mrs. Melanie Larsen and Mrs. Deborrah Estrada.
It was a great time to relax with Palm Pointe families and staff at the beginning of the holiday season. Pictured are Mrs. Luv Lima and her two sons, seventh grader Marcos Lima, fifth grader Rio Lima, and many other families in the background.
National Beta is committed to recognizing high academic achievement, rewarding and nurturing worthy character, fostering leadership skills, and encouraging service to others. Last week students from Palm Pointe Educational Research School @ Tradition’s Beta Club were building on the school’s tradition of excellence by attending their first State Beta Convention in Orlando. Students went above and beyond by competing in eight different areas against other Florida Beta members. In Division I Robotics: Nico Tovar, Estaban Gomes Lopez, Ava Borgella, and Newman Crews received 1st Place. In Division I Advertising Design: Nachbi Pierre, Elizabeth Chavez-Munden, Gabriella Albritton, and Alexia Morgan received 1st place. In Division I Math: Keely Moody received 2nd place runner-up. In addition, in Division I Social Studies: Fabrizzio Capocci received 2nd place runner-up. Students will be competing again in the National Convention in June, here in Orlando. We are so proud that our Beta members are ready to be challenged to go above and beyond.
