Ms. Sarah Butler’s Middle School Art students worked collaboratively to make some cool digital art. March is Youth Art Month and Mrs. Butler wanted to share their artwork. The artwork can be viewed by clicking "learn more" and accessing the link
Mrs. Meier’s fourth grade class recently did a science project to go along with their lessons on how germs and virus such as COVID can spread and how to prevent it. Here is a group photo of some of her students and their results based on cross contamination. Click “Learn More” to see more photos.
Mrs. Butler and her Art Students did an art project that include the collaboration of all ages celebrating one of her favorite illustrators Eric Carle. Mrs. Butler stated “ We did this in many different steps from painting the big pieces of paper to making the different parts of the flowers and sun and bitterly and put them all together”. Mrs. Butler also said, “We had fun using toy cars and Legos to help make texture in the paint.”
As part of their ongoing Ocean Guardian School Program, Mrs. Callie Harris and her middle school Marine Science students at Sugarloaf School started labeling all the storm drains around campus today. We hope to make everyone more aware that the litter/trash that ends up in these drains leads STRAIGHT to the ocean, says Mrs. Harris. She also stated that, Coach Parker actually rescued a live tarpon from one of these drains earlier this year got trapped during one of our tropical storms. Great Job Sugarloaf, keep up the good work protecting our environment.
On Tuesday, Dec. 15 at 10 a.m. Winn Dixie surprised the school staff and educators. The donation included a $50 Winn-Dixie gift card, a beautiful poinsettia and a sweet dessert for each teacher, administration staff member, bus driver and cafeteria worker. The local Winn-Dixie store is making the donation to say “thank you” to local educators for their commitment to both in-person and virtual learning. All of us at Sugarloaf School are very thankful for this Holiday surprise and very grateful for the community partnership we have with Winn Dixie.
Mrs. Meir set up a secret virtual guest reader for her class. Mrs. Rebecca Palomino our former school counselor who is currently an Assistant Principal at KWHS, surprised Mrs. Meier’s class as the secret virtual guest reader to cap off their Holiday festivities. The students enjoyed their story time and showed their thanks on a Padlet that was shared with Mrs. Palomino. Please click Learn More to see the kids’ messages.
