Welcome Back from Special Area
Meet your Special Area Teachers
This year is going to be wonderful! We will remain hopeful and positive! In the Music room, we will take certain precautionary measures to ensure safety, security and learning are at the forefront!
Masks will be worn inside the Music hallway and Music room.
Hand sanitizing stations are located at the entrance and exit where all will be required to take a squirt of hand sanitizer coming into the Music room and exiting the Music room.
Chairs and musical instruments will be sanitized after every use using a solution that kills all viruses and bacteria within two minutes of being administered.
Chairs and usable musical instruments are spread apart to six feet or more.
Students will be using our outdoor Music space where we will be able to safely sing, dance, and spread apart more than 10 feet away from others.
At the conclusion of our outdoor portion of Music Class, we will use hand sanitizer again, and will put masks back on prior to moving out of our “super spread apart space.”
Starting in January all 3rd, 4th & 5th graders will play recorders this year. Each child must have their own recorder with a case where it will be kept when not in use. Please send recorders with your students to school starting Monday, January 25th as we will begin recorder instruction this week. Yes, they will need to practice! Have fun listening to their musical growth! 😊
Individual recorders can be purchased at Amazon.com starting at $4.99. The preferred model is the Yamaha Yrs-20 3 Piece Soprano Recorder. Which comes in a variety of colors.
The Bronco Chorale will be assembling this year. However, we will not be able to take as many students as we have before, and we will adjust our rehearsal style to follow CDC, State and local guidelines. Regularly scheduled rehearsals will begin October 20th from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. Pick-up is promptly at 3:30 p.m. in the Parent Pick-Up Loop. More information will be coming your way in the near future!
We will have auditions outside in our outdoor Music classroom on:
4th & 5th Grade: Tuesday, October 13th from 2:30-3:30 p.m.
3rd Grade: Thursday, October 15th from 2:30-3:30 p.m.

Welcome back to Physical Education class. The P.E. homework for the beginning of the year is to LEARN HOW TO TIE YOUR SHOES!! We continually have students showing up to class with their shoes untied. This is a life skill that all students need, so please set aside 10 minutes an evening to practice tying your shoes. If you have a little brother or sister, please help them learn to tie their shoes if you have already mastered this skill.
We all know that this year is a little different than most years here at school. Please remember to wear your mask out to P.E. Once you are safely social distanced at your personal P.E. number spot, you may then take off your masks. Masks should be carefully folded over and placed into a pocket or hung on a lanyard around your neck so that your hands are free. You also may leave your mask on if that makes you feel more comfortable.
It is of vital importance that you carry a full personal water bottle to P.E. with you. The drinking fountains are off-limits this year due to COVID 19. We are going to be outside whenever possible because this allows us to remove our masks and breath in some fresh air. It is hot in Florida during the late summer and early fall, so we will need water to keep cool and rehydrate as needed. Please make sure you write your name or initials on your water bottle and keep it with you throughout our P.E. class so it doesn’t get mixed up with someone else’s water bottle.
Looking forward to a great school year!
Welcome back families! The Art room will be safe for your little ones with sneeze-guards, individualized materials, social distancing, and frequent disinfecting. Materials/tools such as scissors, pencils, brushes, clay tools, crayons, erasers, and markers will be disinfected after each use.
Other materials like paper, clay, paint, yarn, glue, craft sticks will be used once and kept by the child or thrown away. Each child needs a personal "Art Kit" to work on their masterpieces. The "Art Kit" should have 2 sharpened pencils, eraser, crayons, and a glue stick that will be kept in the Art room. The children attend Art every 4 days which will give time for any viruses to die off. Kits should be labeled with the child's first and last name. There are extra items for kits if a child runs out of something. A few teachers have already made up their class kits!!! We are asking for donations of pencils and glue sticks for these run out often. Please keep in mind that Art will be “Make it, take it” to limit the transmission of germs.
The children in grades K-2 are learning about mask masking.
The children in grades 3-5 are learning about the history of MASKS and creating one out of paper. They will also write how they feel with their masks on. The earliest use of masks was for rituals and ceremonies, and the oldest found mask is from 7000 BC.
“Behind every mask, there is a face, and behind that a story."
Art in the Community
The 2020-21 school year will have limited Art contests and shows until we get the all-clear signal. That does not mean you cannot show off your child's work on the fridge or purchase a small shadowbox picture frame to display the art on your wall.
The Afterschool Ceramics Class has a new name!!! It's now called
3-D ART. This will be held on Thursdays for six consecutive weeks starting with the 4th and 5th graders. 3-D means three dimensional which may include clay, cardboard, wood, styrofoam, wire, rocks, or medal. The 4th and 5th grade 3-D Art flyers will be coming home shortly. It is on a first-come basis. Please remember the class has to abide by social distancing, therefore only 15 children can attend.
