The Spring Equinox is quickly approaching, bringing with it an exciting feeling for everyone as the winter lull turns into our beautiful Florida weather. Spring Break is quickly approaching!
We had a fantastic trip to Driftwood last month, and the children worked very hard on community-building activities and academic opportunities we rarely experience. Before Spring Break, we will finish our study of Asia and Australia, and move on to Europe in March.
We have been exploring decimals, ratio and proportion. The 4th-years have been finishing up their study of Ancient Rome and are moving into their study of Ancient India. The fifth-years have been working on early American history with a study on the constitution and early America, and the sixth-years have been working on Florida’s early history.
Our writing skills are growing rapidly, and each student is showing growth as their pre-writing skills are solidifying and creating deeper and more developed writing.

Our annual Spring Festival will be after Spring Break on Thursday, March 29. We are all so excited to continue our traditions!
