Seabreeze Is Lighting the Way for Tomorrow S Leaders

Seabreeze Leader

April, 2016

Seabreeze is lighting the way for tomorrow’s leaders.

Spring has arrived! We hope everyone enjoyed their time away during Spring Break and is ready to focus on learning for the final nine week period. We look forward to ending our year on a positive note with all our students.

FSA Assessments

Testing continues through the month of April. Our students are doing AMAZING! Please refer to the calendar on the back of this newsletter for specific grade level dates and ensure your child is present and on time everyday. Students do much better on assessments when they take their tests in the normal testing environment. Remember to encourage them to do their best and ensure they get plenty of rest. They have worked very hard and are ready to shine on these assessments. We appreciate all of your support of this process.

Morning Mile Club

We have begun a trial running club with our Kindergarten and First grade students in the mornings from 7:45-8:15 on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays. Students earn a popsicle stick for every lap they run around the baseball field and will earn rewards at the end of the year for their efforts. We are encouraging all students to participate and a permission slip needs to be returned before that can occur. If you are interested in this activity for your child please contact your child’s teacher or Mr. Gilbert at 247-5900. We look forward to expanding this opportunity to all students next year.
