WELCOME FROM YOUR PASSIONATE PRINCIPAL
Greetings Parents and Community Members,
We hope you enjoyed the summer break and are now ready to begin another year of learning. As we prepare to welcome students back to class on August 14, please note that our school hours have changed for the 2019-2020 school year.
Student Instructional Hours:
H.S./VPK/Preschool 7:50am – 1:50pm
Specialize Kg – Grade 5 7:20am – 2:20pm
Florida law requires the extension of instructional time beyond the normal school day for students who attend the 300 lowest performing elementary schools (in the state) based on the results of the Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) for English Language Arts.
Please note, students who will enter grades four or five for the 2019-20 school year and who scored a Level 5 on the English Language Arts assessment may “opt out” of the extended instructional learning time. Parents can contact me regarding this option.
Our theme for this year is: “Destination: Success”
Our focus will be to increase student’s background knowledge through a diversity of experiences, culturally responsive instruction and personalized learning. Of course, we will drive this focus through our Magnet theme of Technology with Global Communications.
It’s going to be a great year!
If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to call our main office at 754-322-6950.
Shedrick Dukes, Ed.S. Principal
