Imaginations get their rocket fuel at Camp Invention! This summer’s all-new curriculum allows children in kindergarten through 6th grade to experience real-world problem solving and creative thinking as they transform a distant exoplanet, take risks as future entrepreneurs, blast rockets and rubber chickens, and wire a circuit to create their own Spy Gadget Alarm Box! Local educators lead a week of hands-on activities that will launch your child’s imagination. Visit campinvention.org or call 800.968.4332.
Thank You ARS!!!
Thank you to ARS for donating the new car rider tags to our school.
ATTENTION PARENTS: Due to construction traffic, DO NOT PARK in the state park gate access area next to the bus ramp on Range Road. This is a construction zone—not appropriate for pedestrian traffic OR pick up/drop off. Construction equipment will be in that area for the next two to three months. They must be able to access the state park gates at all times. Any law enforcement officer can issue a ticket for parking in that area. (This is outlined in the parent handbook as an area that should NOT be used for drop off/pick up.) Thank you for your assistance!
(Workers will be conducting environmental drilling to access and monitor ground water.)
Congratulations to our own 4th grader Sharlysse Nelson! She recently received the President's Volunteer Service Award for her numerous volunteer hours at Bluewater Elementary. Sharlysse worked during the summer and after school hours to assist our Media Center, Front Office, and many teachers in tasks that support the classroom environment. We couldn't be prouder of this award signed by Barack Obama and distributed by the Corporation for National and Community Service. Way to go Sharlysse!
We are very proud to be in the Top 10% of Florida Schools.
Interested in an Enjoyable and Fulfilling
The Media Center offers a variety of opportunities for volunteering that fit a variety of interests and a variety of schedules. If you volunteer in the library, you can help students find books, shelve books, assist with book fairs, and help with many other tasks and projects.
In the volunteer room, volunteers make copies for teachers, use die cuts to cut out letters and figures, laminate classroom materials, etc.
Media Center volunteers set their own schedules. Some of our volunteers are here for a few hours every day; several volunteer all day once or twice a week; and others come only in the morning or afternoon. We also have drop-ins who come to the Media Center when they have a few minutes to pitch in. Whatever your schedule is, we will be delighted to sign you up and put you to work!
Our Books to Badges program allows you to accumulate your volunteer hours to allow your child to become Deputy for the Day with Deputy Self after 20 hours in the library.
The Media Center is an opportunity to assist every child and teacher at Bluewater Elementary School.
