May Spanish Lime Newsletter

Dear Spanish Lime Families,

April was full of self-reflections and goal settings. The Spanish Limes did a tremendous job conducting their Student Led Conferences. I hope you all enjoyed that time absorbing where your child is today. I want to thank you all for full participation this year, the Spanish Limes feedback on their favorite part of the conference was sharing it with you!

As we head into the month of May many events are taking place. Mark your calendars: May 10th at 1:45 is the Parent Appreciation Music and Movement Concert! This will be take place on the front lawn. Cultural Immersion and Art Show is scheduled for May 24th from 5:30-7:00. This event will showcase individual art pieces and our class art auction items on the front playground. You will have a chance to tour all Primary and Elementary classrooms while viewing their research.

The Spanish Limes have been focusing on the continent of South America. Each student will have conducted research on a vertebrate and invertebrate animal, plants, famous landmarks, cultures, and countries! All research and extensions are completed in class. Most of the crafting supplies are recycled items that have been collected over a year from one household.

Every Tuesday for the month of May the Spanish Limes will be going on walkabouts and field trips in the afternoons. May 7th the West Martello Towers, May 14th the Eco Discovery Center, May 21st the NOAA Weather Station, and last week of school, dates pending, the Dolphin Research Center in Marathon (more information to come). This will be a wonderful time to get out into the community, learn about the experts and opportunities that encompass our island home.

Looking forward to a busy month finishing out the end of the year strong together!

“Growth is not merely a harmonious increase in size, but a transformation. Man is a sculptor of himself, urged by a mysterious inner force to the attainment of an ideal determination form. Growth may be defined as a seeking after perfection, given by an impulse of Life.” Maria Montessori, To Educate the Human Potential
