Students and staff were “Feelin’ Groovy” at our Rockin’ Family Night. Parents learned about websites they can use with their children at home. We also had Deputy Lopez from the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Department talk to parents and students about Internet safety. Students were also able to shop for books with their families in our Scholastic Book Fair. Other highlights of the evening were performances by our administrators singing “Feelin’ Groovy” and Mrs. Remington and Mrs. Valinote performing as Sonny and Cher.
Manatee Academy is currently promoting family literacy by encouraging families to read together for 20 minutes per day for the next 20 days. Families have the opportunity to participate in a contest in which they send in a 20 second video reading together or talking about reading as a family. Reading counts at Manatee Academy!
