    MISSION STATEMENT

     

    The mission of the Eighth Street Media program is to ensure that the students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. This is accomplished by providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats; by providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas; and by working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students.

    MORNING NEWS SHOW

     

    Our morning news show airs each morning at 8:10 a.m..

     

    Students work on the show throughout the year. Students will rotate on to the show each 9 weeks.

     

    Students learn how to use a video camera, how to use the sound board, how to speak into a microphone, how to write a script, and how to act while on TV.

     

    The purpose of our show is to let the school know about daily and future happenings and schedules. If your class is doing something special, let Mrs. Hughes or any news crew member know, and we will try to feature your class on the show!

     

    We look for students who have the following qualities:

     

    • Positive attitude
    • Responsibility
    • Teamwork
    • Good attendance
    • Good grades

    SUNSHINE STATE YOUNG READERS' AWARD

     

    The Sunshine State Young Readers' program presents a list of fifteen books chosen each year by a committee of Florida librarians. They are chosen for their quality and appeal, and represent some of the best in children's literature today. Students in grades 3 through 5 are encouraged to read at least three of the books, so they can vote for their favorite. Every year, the author of the book with the most statewide votes is presented with the Sunshine State Young Readers' Award.

    FRA CHILDREN'S BOOK AWARD

     

    The FRA Children's Book Award is a program sponsored by the Florida Reading Association and is for students in Pre-K through second grade. Students read or have read to them eight quality books, and then vote on their favorite book. The votes are tallied at the state level, and the author of the winning book receives recognition.

     

    Students in PreKindergarten, Kindergarten, first grade and second grade have the opportunity to read or listen to recent literature that is considered the best in the state. Students also learn about the importance of voting.

    AR HOME CONNECT

     

    This site allows you to see what books your child has already taken. https://hosted257.renlearn.com/72115/HomeConnect/

     

    You will need your child’s username and password.

     

    Their username is their Student ID number or lunch number.  Most students, except Kindergarten, already know their student ID number. (It can be found on Report Cards).

     

    Their password is their 2 digit Birth Month and their 4 digit Birth Year.

     

    If you'd like to receive emails showing your student's test results, click the Email Setup link in Renaissance Home Connect and follow the directions.
