What a wonderful time of the year! I’d like to thank everyone for all you’ve done for our students at Hunter’s Green Elementary. The holiday season is a time for giving, and you have gone above and beyond with this. We are continuing through December 12, collecting for Toys for Tots. Thanks so much.
I’d like to invite everyone to our Sip and Stroll Art exhibit on Tuesday, December 18, from 5:30 – 6:15 pm. Enjoy warm, tasty beverages while you stroll through a gallery of high quality art displays. Afterwards, enjoy the Jingle Bell Jukebox concert at 6:30 featuring our ensembles. Our artists and musicians are unbelievable. There is no charge for admittance, however, we are accepting donations for the music program so we can purchase some new musical equipment.
Our students have been busy getting ready for our school’s STEM fair. Students in kindergarten through second grade participate in a class project. Students in grades 3 – 5, are involved in either a group or individual project. The winners from each class will be displayed on December 12, from 11:00 – 1:30 in the multi-purpose room. Parents are welcome to come to the fair. The Regional STEM Fair will be held at the Tampa Convention Center on February 6 and 7.
Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 are working hard on their Math Fact Fluency Challenge. In order for students to become more efficient problem solvers, they must know their multiplication and division facts. After students eat breakfast in the cafeteria, several laptop computers will be set up for them to complete an online fact mastery challenge. They will work their way through math facts 0 – 12, and can take one test a day. This will be on a first come, first serve basis for computer access. Students must earn 100% to move on to the next number challenge. They will be given special panther cash for each fact set mastered. Computer access will be stopped at 7:30, so students can get to class on time. Please help us encourage the students to participate in this and to learn their facts.
Thank you so much for all you do for our students. If there is anything I can do to be of assistance, please let me know.
Principal, Hunter’s Green Elementary
