Welcome Back!

kiddos WELCOME BACK SPARR STALLIONS!!!    My name is Mrs. Gaston and I am pleased to be your child's teacher for this new school year. We're so happy to be back in school! However, we know we are starting this year off in unprecedented times and things are ever-changing. Please know that I will always have the best interests of your children as my driving mission every day in the classroom. 

Go Stallions, We're SPARR STRONG !

Our OPEN HOUSE will be VIRTUAL this year. It will be on October 8th from 6:00-6:30. The virtual link to access the meeting is here: Join Microsoft Teams Meeting  I won't be able to answer any questions at that time but if at any time you have any questions you may email me at phyllis.gaston@marion.k12.fl.us and I will get back to you ASAP. I will be presenting a powerpoint virtually on that evening explaining some of the work students have been doing and things we will be doing as the year progresses. Please attend the Open House if you are able. We are keeping it to 30 minutes because I know many of you have more than one student and need to attend other Open Houses for those students as well.

  • Pictures of our classroom are now posted in our Gallery so you may see what your child's learning environment will look like as we weren't able to have a traditional Orientation this year. 
  • The district has uploaded a video on the MCPS website explaining how to get to the Distance Learning platform (Microsoft Teams) in the event it becomes necessary for your student at any time to utilize this program. We will also begin showing students how to access this platform in the classroom and having them complete assignments from time to time in the classroom utilizing this platform so they are familiar with it.
