A NOTE FROM DR. HIGGINS
“but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” -Isaiah 40:31
“Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny. “ -C.S. Lewis
3rd Grade Miss Allaineous Parade
Third grade students had a special parade in the hallways of the Lower School, but not your typical circus parade! After having read the book Miss Allaineous, A Vocabulary Disaster by Debra Frasier the third grade teachers created their own Science Vocabulary Parade. Each student was randomly assigned a Science word from a previous topic of study and asked to define it and to create a simple costume that reflected their word. It was great fun to see the creativity of the words that were displayed by the students, this also added extra fun to learning.
3rd & 4th Grade Students Visit the Orlando Magic Game
215 third and fourth grade TFA family members and teachers filled the seats at the Amway Center to cheer on the Orlando Magic last Friday night. A great time of fellowship, faith, family and community building was had by all as 20 of our TFA students began the game by forming a tunnel for the Magic players. That was just the beginning of a fabulous night of fun that lead to a win for the Magic. Go Magic!! Go TFA!!
NEW THIS WEEK

March means the farm is coming to Kindergarten! Kindergarten is excited to start this fun-filled unit. They will be experiencing the farm in both the classroom and at Green Meadows Farm in Kissimmee. The field trip to Green Meadows Farm is scheduled for Friday, March 27th. Kindergartners will have a wonderful day of “hands on” learning about the farm. They will have the opportunity to milk a cow, hold a baby chick, catch chickens and experience a hayride. There will even be a pony ride!
