Your child will be participating in the 4-H/Tropicana Public Speaking Program. Students will choose a topic that is of interest to them, and write a speech on it at home. They will then present their speeches to their class on Thursday, March 30th. Each classroom will have a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner. The first place winners from each class will compete in a grade level wide contest on April 6th. One winner from our grade level will be chosen to compete with other students from Sumter County on a May 11th.

Please make sure on all homework (math and reading) that test taking strategies are shown i.e. underlining where you found your answers, boxing in key vocabulary, eliminating answers, etc. When your child is completing their math homework, please make sure that their work is shown. Thank you for helping us with this matter! It is important that we as teachers know where our students are making mistakes!
Students are expected to turn in all assignments when they are due unless they have an absence. Makeup work must be turned in within the number of days missed plus one day to receive credit. Any assignment turned in a day late will only be given a maximum of 60% and will earn a zero thereafter. All projects are due on the due date. No late projects will be accepted, even if the child is absent (see handbook pg. 19).
