What's Hopping in Educaiton

Success For Educators

Hopping from State to State to Educate!!

Zooles-Animal Education Program has been hopping throughout North Florida to educate our youth about the habitats, diets, and lives of various animals. Their featured super star during their campus visit was none other than Trent The Kangaroo.  Kangaroos are the largest living marsupials and can survive long periods of time without water. Full-grown kangaroos can jump as far as 20 feet in one jump and can move as fast 32 miles per hour for up to 30 minutes. Educating our students about various animals around the world, survival strategies, and how our lifestyles impact our environment can be critical to the preservation of species like the kangaroo.

Black History Education

Black History Month Celebrations

Black history and culture is such a part of the American fabric and schools are continuing to incorporate events and activities to supplement and celebrate the rich history and place value on diversity. Established as Negro History Week in the 1920s by Carter G. Woodson, February was chosen for the celebration because Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln were born in this month. Extended to a month-long celebration in 1976, Black History Month is an opportunity to emphasize the history and achievements of African Americans.

The African-Caribbean Dance Theater presented students at Springwood Elementary with not only a musical and artistic performance, but also educated students on the instruments and their official names and craftsmanship.
