This month has been a busy one for Moss Park! Over spring break, 10 of our teachers took the time from relaxing beachside to better themselves professionally and attend the Ron Clark Academy in Georgia. We had a wonderful time and are so excited to help build our community and create a solid family culture for our students.
Several of our students competed at the district level in the OCCTM Math Competition under the guidance of Ms. Whalen, Ms. Lucas and Ms. VanAlstyne. Our students placed first in the relay, first place in problem-solving, and second place in team activity! Students in our Battle of the Books team not only read all 15 of the Sunshine State books but became experts. They took second in our learning community! Congratulations to NorthLake Park who took first, keeping it in Nonahood! We can’t wait to battle you at the district competition!
Congratulations to our Disney Dreamer & Doer, Shaun Shores! Shores is an amazing role model for all of his peers. He sets expectations for kindness, caring, compassion and determination that reach new heights! Not only does he set a good example by his own kindness, but he makes sure that everyone around him is kind, too. He stands up for his peers when he knows they are being bullied and has compassion for others that goes beyond the average ever seen in a 5th grader.
We have a lot to look forward to moving into the next marking period. I know our students have enjoyed making great memories this year and are excited to finish the last few weeks strong!
