Welcome back everyone to the 2016-2017 school year. Our classrooms are filled with students and teachers actively participating in learning about each other and from one another, establishing rituals and routines, and diving into curriculum. Our building is in pristine condition, our cafeteria staff welcomes 937 students to lunch each day, and the D.E.N., our extended day program, has over 150 students who are benefiting from before and after school care in a nurturing environment. Our school will continue to have a focus around educating the whole child as we move into our 20th year. Everyone, Everyday, and Everything Matters at Ocean Palms!
I encourage you to read the first edition of the 2016-2017 Palms Post for more information about what is happening throughout the year. The parent newsletter will be published every two weeks on Fridays. The purpose of the newsletter is to provide a communication tool between home and school where we can share important dates, exciting news, upcoming events, business partner highlights, and pertinent curriculum information.
Click on the link below to read about what’s happening at our school. In every issue you will find a message from Principal Richardson as well as great ideas for getting involved at Ocean Palms.
In a continuing effort to provide safety and security to our students and staff we ask that you complete a School Access Form if you plan to enter a facility in the St. Johns County School District. Any person passing beyond the front office area must show a valid driver’s license or state identification card.
