 Exciting News at The Villages Charter School!  Our Accelerated Program, Academic Pathways, has officially launched!  Please review the brochure attached below that explains all about the Pathway options for students!  As always, please contact me if you have any questions! 

Elementary School: 

We are now into the 2nd nine weeks and students have been working hard and learning so much!  They have completed their ocean research and prepared presentations about all they have learned!  Some of our 3rd grade students created videos about their ocean animal research, posted below!  They couldn't wait to share!!

Students have also selected their long term project!  Our first grade students will be working on month long projects that will require them to use the scientific method and experiment, while incorporating literature as well!    For October, 1st grade is doing pumpkin investigations!  Our 2nd and 3rd grade students have all selected a video production project and are working hard on script development!

Speaking of video projects, Congratulations are in order!!

Last year's 5th grade group placed 3rd at the state level and last year's 2nd grade group placed 2nd at the STATE level.  On October 10, many of those students traveled to Orlando to attend the ceremony and receive the awards!

Be on the look for our monthly newsletter.  Our newsletter always recaps what the classes have done during that month and are posted on the web site as PDF files at the end of each month.  (Please see below) 

 

Middle School:

We will be meeting with Middle School Gifted Classes on Mondays 2nd, 3rd, or 4th periods.  Middle School Gifted students should have received an index card with their class period.  I have also notified the teachers.  Please contact me if you have any questions!

This semester, students are working on a Stock Market Challenge and are doing an AMAZING job!  They are so excited to see if they have made money and to research what stocks they believe will be beneficial!  Keep up the great work!

It is never too early to start thinking about the future!  Here is a link to explore more about the exciting academies offered at The Villages Charter High School:
