Principal's Message:

We have made significant progress in our positive behavior program this year at Koa.  Our discipline is down 15% from last school year as we are committed to a system of Positive Referrals, Mentoring, and Counseling.  We are very proud of our students who come to school each day prepared to learn and make great choices!
We are still striving to improve our student attendance.  To continue to encourage our Koalas to come to school every day, we are launching two new attendance incentives:
1.) We are launching our first-ever 50-Day Attendance Challenge, beginning Monday March 2 through Friday May 15.  Any student who has Perfect Attendance during this time period will be invited to a VIP Party on the last week of school.
2.) Each month, the class in each grade level with the highest attendance percentage will be awarded with a travelling trophy.  Each month the winning class will proudly display the trophy in the classroom.
Parents of students in grades 3-5, please be aware of the testing dates for the upcoming Florida Standards Assessments.  We have prepared our Koalas by having "FSA Practice Tests" in each grade, in the actual testing locations and conditions they will experience in the spring.  Students in 3rd grade are also taking "Test Stress Buster" lessons to alleviate some of the anxiety they may be facing.
April 1-2: Grade 3 FSA English/Language Arts-Reading
April 2: Grade 4 FSA English/Language Arts-Writing
May 4-5: Grades 4-5 FSA English Language Arts-Reading
May 6-7: Grades 3-5 FSA Mathematics
May 11-12: Grade 5 Statewide Science Assessment
Finally, we have had great participation all year long in our School Advisory Council (SAC) and Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).  If you are interested in coming to one of our meetings, we have SAC and PTO three more times this year, all beginning at 8:45am:
March 5
