Sun Blaze Elementary School is celebrating five years in the community. Our staff commemorated this year with a photo on the front lawn of our campus. We are proud of the previous four years and the many achievements we have reached together, especially being an A-rated school since opening. However, we do not measure our success based on past merits, but look to the future, exploring new and exciting ways to create environments where students are excited and challenged to learn.
Our students have many opportunities in addition to classroom instruction to assist in their academic, social and physical development. These opportunities include: Art, Music, Chorus, Physical Education, Sunshine State Young Readers, Spelling Bee, Oration, Field Day, TV News Crew, Science Club, Odyssey of the Mind, Golf, Dance, K-Kids, Karate, Girl’s on the Run, Sun Blaze Clubs, and our most recent addition to our Special area rotation, Movement. As we create environments where students can learn at a high level, we also teach with kindness, compassion, and a desire to see our students continued growth as well-rounded students in our homes and community. Classroom instruction in addition to the listed opportunities assures us that we are moving in the right direction.
We also are excited about the many areas of campus improvements that are taking place at Sun Blaze. Our new parking lot will add 50 additional parking spaces for parents, volunteers and community visitors, making it easier to find space while visiting our beautiful campus. It also will feature a second, much-needed bike rack area for the many students in the community who ride their bicycles to school. Our Physical Education space has been expanded and will include four different hopscotch patterns and three 10’x10’ Four Square courts. Our two Movement classrooms resemble a dance studio, featuring open space and a solid wall of mirrors. From the Movement class, students will learn how to explore their creativity and imagination through movement. The Movement class also has cognitive benefits for children. Students will exercise both sides of their brain and have a better awareness of spatial relationships. Our students will develop discipline, focus, posture and poise through structured exercise and rhythm. Also, they will practice stretching, coordination, balance and strength building.
We anticipate great things at Sun Blaze Elementary during the 2017-2018 school year and look forward to celebrating these achievements with our students, families and community.
