🍎CELEBRATING LEARNING & ENGAGEMENT🍎 Superintendent John D. Millay joined District and school leaders for instructional walks at Pinewood Elementary School and Warfield Elementary School this week. These learning walks allow faculty and administrators to collaborate as they identify best practices and opportunities for improvement that will lead to the best possible outcomes for all students. Dr. Millay continues to enjoy witnessing students and teachers engage in learning related to the new Benchmark curriculum, which is the English Language Arts (ELA) program that was recently adopted by the School Board for all students enrolled in District-operated schools. The curriculum is fully aligned to the Florida Department of Education's new B.E.S.T. standards for student learning. "One of the many things I love about the new ELA series is that it incorporates different subject areas, including science content, throughout the curriculum," Dr. Millay shared. "It's so important for our students to continue making connections across all areas while building their literacy and writing skills. I am appreciative of our School Board for making this great academic investment in all Martin County students. Our students and teachers are truly enjoying diving into these lessons. The engagement has been fantastic to see." #ALLINMartin👊

💡SPOTLIGHT ON #MCSDPotential🌟💡 Assistant Principal Patty Morris of The Pinewood Elementary helps students achieve their #MCSDPotential🌟 by being a cheerleader for every child, every day. "Ms. Morris is the most warm, welcoming and selfless educator I have ever encountered," said Jessie, a parent. "She greets every single child with a big smile, encouraging them to have an amazing day and sending them home with the same wishes. I can truly attest that she genuinely cares for her students because 30 years ago, she taught me! I have the greatest memories of her and feel beyond blessed that my daughter has the same positive experience. Ms. Morris is rooting on every single child and I hope she knows the magnitude of the impact her encouragement and love have on her students. Not a day goes by that I don't think to myself how lucky I feel to have her in our lives." Thank you for going #ALLINMartin👊 for all of your students, Ms. Morris!
