Headlines & Features

  • News from the clinic:

    Sometimes it is difficult to make the decision about whether or not your child is sick enough to stay home from school. With minor symptoms early in the morning, you cannot predict if he/she will feel better or worse during the course of the day. These guidelines can be of help when you’re trying to decide what’s best to do.

    Congratulations to Anita Hatcher

    Our January Pioneer Teacher of the Month!

    A brief bio from Ms. Hatcher:

    Graduate of FSU 1986
    Master's level coursework at FIU in TESOL
    36th year in the classroom
    Taught in 4 states, 8 different districts, 11 schools, and 8 different grade levels from K - 12.
    The only year in my career that I didn't teach, I sold art in Key West. I once sold a $26,000 coffee table. But, I went back to teaching...
    I love working out, doing yoga, reading, and the beach.
    I really miss ice skating and snow days.
    My mission in life is to create lifelong readers and inspire students to work up to, and then beyond, their full potential, not just in the classroom, but in life.
