🍎LEARNING IN ACTION🍎 Superintendent John D. Millay observed teachers and students diving into daily #Fundations and #Benchmark English Language Arts (ELA) lessons at J. D. Parker Elementary School this morning. Earlier this year, the Martin County School Board adopted new K-12 instructional materials for ELA that are fully aligned to the Florida Department of Education's B.E.S.T. standards.

"Student engagement has been off the charts," Dr. Millay shared. "This is what we love to see when participating in learning walks and observing instruction. More of that!" #ALLINMartin👊
