A.R. News


This year Calusa's students are Roaring Readers! Students will read to earn their Roaring Lion tag. Please click on the link below to see how many AR points are required for each tag. Once students reach their Roaring Lion Tag, they will make a guest appearance on our morning news program and get their tag on TV from Mrs. Fuentes and/or Mr. Bovo!
A special thanks to our business partner, Mrs. Sonia Irusta, President of Hazmat Compliance Inc. for providing incentives for our Accelerated Reader program!

News and Announcements

March News
Our 2nd Annual Calusa Walk-a-Thon will take place on Friday, March 13th. Our students will be walking around the school and ending up on the P.E. Field. This event is a fundraiser for much needed technology that will directly impact all of our students. Please ensure that your child has turned in their pledge form by Friday with the donations collected.

Next Monday and Tuesday our 3rd and 4th grade students will be taking the Reading portion of the Florida State Standards Assessment. Please ensure that your child has ample sleep the night before the test and a good breakfast in the morning. Remember, free breakfast is served daily in our cafeteria from 7:45am to 8:15am.

Friday March 20th is a Teacher Workday therefore there will be no school for students.
School will be closed for Spring Break during the week on March 23rd- 27th.
