    Coach's Corner

    Thank you to all the Osteen Elementary families for donating to the American Heart Association’s Healthy Heart Fund Raiser. Osteen Elementary raised $2,301 in the fight against heart disease. Students will be getting all their fund-raising rewards during the first week of April. ​

    Our top three fundraisers were: 
    Paityn Chasco ($385) 
    Jackson Bailes ($200)
    Addison Bone ($170)
     Great job Broncos!​

    The Broncos did an excellent job at this year’s Beast Run! Students ran hard and worked on their cardio-vascular fitness while running and walking as they earned their ribbons and stars. We are currently working on striking and targeting skills during our PE golfing unit. Later this month we will be working on our dance unit with Coach Prosser and Mrs. LeFils.


    Fifth  Grade CEC (Collaborative Enrichment Club) students and parents volunteered at the Manatee Festival on January 26th. They presented their Florida animal projects to visitors at the Osteen Elementary booth. Mr. Bambrick visited the booth and asked students questions about their project. Mr. Colon, Volusia County School Board Member, also inquired about the projects and spoke with students. Great job CEC!

    Experiencing Art 

    The Core Concepts and Skills

    Grades K-2          
    The students in Grades Kindergarten and First are studying landscape art featuring the famous artist “Winslow Home.” He grew up in the northeast of the United States during the Civil War. Abraham Lincoln was President. Homer was an American artist who connects to the primary social studies unit. Our drawings include sky and ground and focusing on the horizon line where they meet. We are looking forward to learning about warp, weft, and weaving on a cardboard loom. Weaving is a great skill to improve fine motor skills and identifying patterns. 

                                                                                                                                                                        Grades 3-5
    The students in Grades 2-5 are also learning about Winslow Homer the famous American artist that painted landscapes.  We discussed the attributes of painting including foreground, middle ground, and background.
    We learned how to draw using a 1-point perspective. Words such as vertical, horizontal, diagonal, parallel, vanishing point and horizon have been incorporated into the lesson and will help us understand landscape drawings. These should be completed before Spring Break.

    Robotics Team

    Our Robotics Teams went to the Robot Fest at Spruce Creek High School in January. For their challenge, they had to build a Moon Base that could sustain life. They had to program a robot to move supplies on their moon base. They had to explain how they built their moon base as well as why they chose that particular robot to help on their moon base. The Robotics teams had to present their information to the judges. They worked so hard and did an amazing job presenting. Each team won an award. The Solar Smashers won the Spirit Award.TheRobot Stars won the Teamwork Award. Team Rocket won the Most Creative Award. We are so proud of these students!
