Safety when dropping off Students in the a.m.: The crossing guards in the front of the school have noticed that many parents are dropping students off on 12th Avenue. Please be aware this is not allowed and is dangerous. Students are crossing the street outside of the crosswalk and many are almost getting hit by oncoming vehicles. Students must be dropped off in the car line in the back of the school or you must park at the church and walk your child to school. Please do not park on a side street or in the middle of the road to drop your child off. Also, do not walk “through” the parking lot. You must walk on the sidewalks. Children are walking through the parking lot with traffic. This is extremely dangerous. Please supervise your children at all times.

IReady Reading and Math Program: This year, Palm Beach County will be using a research based computer program to supplement instruction for both Reading and Math, entitled IReady. Teachers will share more detailed information about it at Grade Expectations. Please copy and paste the link below to watch a short video on the program.
