Mrs. Meier’s 4th graders “Meier’s Makos”, wrote essays about their experiences through COVID and the COVID Quarantine. Their essays were combined and published in a class book called COVID-19 Quarantined. The students were excited when the final books arrived and each student received a copy as well as a certificate acknowledging each of them as published authors. The book also included a personal letter from Ms. Meier to her students letting them know how proud she is of them and how much they inspire her each day. She stated “you are some of the most courageous, brave and toughest little cookies I’ve ever met…my Champions”. The books dedication sums it all up nicely; ‘We dedicate this book to each other because we stuck together and got through it”. Her class ended the day with a snow cone celebration.
Mrs. Herrera’s Kindergarteners were very excited to finally release the butterflies. Her class watched as they develop from Larva (caterpillar) to Pupa to Adult Butterfly. Over the past two weeks Mrs. Herrera’s class did many activates that related to the butterfly’s metamorphosis; they read stories, saw videos, did journal entries and science lessons about the stages of butterfly development.
Ms. Sarah Butler’s Middle School Art students worked collaboratively to make some cool digital art. March is Youth Art Month and Mrs. Butler wanted to share their artwork. The artwork can be viewed by clicking "learn more" and accessing the link
Mrs. Meier’s fourth grade class recently did a science project to go along with their lessons on how germs and virus such as COVID can spread and how to prevent it. Here is a group photo of some of her students and their results based on cross contamination. Click “Learn More” to see more photos.
As part of their ongoing Ocean Guardian School Program, Mrs. Callie Harris and her middle school Marine Science students at Sugarloaf School started labeling all the storm drains around campus today. We hope to make everyone more aware that the litter/trash that ends up in these drains leads STRAIGHT to the ocean, says Mrs. Harris. She also stated that, Coach Parker actually rescued a live tarpon from one of these drains earlier this year got trapped during one of our tropical storms. Great Job Sugarloaf, keep up the good work protecting our environment.
