Here we are at the last week of school before the winter break and the end of 2016. This year is passing so quickly.
Thank you to all who helped make the first holiday store a success! The students really enjoyed shopping and the PTO netted over $500 to fund their projects.
We have the last of the holiday concerts this Monday and Tuesday. The girls' chorus and mixed chorus will be performing off campus Monday and all of the middle school choruses will present their holiday shows Monday night at the Glenridge Performing Arts Theatre. Then the advanced chorus will perform off campus on Tuesday.
This past weekend the advanced chorus was at Disney performing their holiday program. These students have worked very hard, giving up time on the weekends to perform for Sarasota events as well as the Disney show and each student is responsible for their own costs associated with the out of town trip. Thank you to the donors who helped sponsor some of the students. The other two choruses will be performing at Universal Studios with "America Sings" in March. If anyone wishes to donate funds to assist these students, please let us know. The students would certainly appreciate it.
The fourth and fifth graders will participate in the writing simulation on Tuesday, 12/13 to help prepare them for the FSA Writing Assessment in February. Wednesday, 12/14, the algebra and Spanish 1 students will take their midterm exams.
School will be closed December 19 through January 2. We return to school on January 3rd. We wish all of our families a very happy holiday season. Celebrate the season in your own special way, enjoy your families, and be safe if you are traveling.
