With May upon us, we are racing to the finish of another fantastic school year! Before we go in full celebration mode for our Class of 2018, we want to share a few communication milestones to help you plan your summer and back-to-school deadlines.
Registration for summer camp is open online. Three new JK camps just added! In addition to new themes and activities in the summer day camp, there are more adventures for all ages, and camps for foreign language, STEAM, coding, dolls, chefs, animal lovers - even some for parents!
On Sunday, May 20, 2018, Shorecrest Preparatory School held its Commencement Ceremony for the 73-member Class of 2018. Among the graduating class were twins Samantha and Allison Epstein and twins Karli and Maverick McDonough. Together with Will McLoughlin, Jack Ledford and Breck Tanner these legacy students, with a family member who attended Shorecrest in the past, share a very special bond with the school. The connections for this class are strengthened with more members having relatives who have served on the Board of Trustees or who are faculty members. With nearly half the class honored as "Lifers," having been at Shorecrest for 12 years or more, it only makes sense that they would be as close as they are.
Congratulations to Cecilia Garcia for her outstanding performance in the 2018 National Spanish Exams. Cecilia merited Second Place in the State of Florida in the Level 1 category of the NSE, given in early April. We recognize Cecilia’s success and also salute her teacher, Mr. Sidy Ndiaye, for this winning accomplishment. ¡Felicidades!
The human body is made of important organ systems that work together to maintain daily function. Some of these systems include the circulatory, respiratory, skeletal, muscular, digestive, and endocrine systems. Upper School students in Mrs. Peck’s Anatomy and Physiology class were assigned as their final project this year to prepare an in-depth lesson plan to educate first graders about one of the human body systems.
