HUB Happenings - September Edition
The first month of school is officially behind us and there’s already been some fun things happening! Our core teachers have returned for another year, and we’ve also welcomed a few new teachers:
Miss Jessica, a multitalented teacher leading PE/Nutrition on Mondays, Music Around the World on Wednesdays, and our sold out 3rd-5thgrade class on Fridays.
Miss Jill, who has her own radio broadcast, is teaching Journalism and Public Speaking on Tuesdays, and a fascinating American History class for our 3rd-5thgrade students on Wednesday.
Carver, who previously worked as an engineer at Goddard Space Center, has transitioned from tutor to instructor and has taken over our upper level math courses.
We are also proud to announce that we have received a $250 garden grant from the Broward County Farm Bureau! The funds will go to enhancing our urban garden and outdoor seating area. Ms. Tashana and the Environmental Studies class worked so hard last year to improve the soil and plant the appropriate plants – and we all reaped the benefits of fresh vegetables!
The Elementary students got quite the treat this month with an in-class field
trip. Dr. Blair from The Lucky Horse Sanctuary brought two 18-day old labs and three 4-month-old chickens! The students not only got to learn about the animals, but also got to pet them – a first for many of the students! Needless to say, it was a very exciting experience.
The Journalism and Public Speaking class was able to attend a 9/11 Ceremony at Firefighter’s Park here in Margate. It was a lovely ceremony with local firefighters, police officers, and veterans from New York who
provided firsthand accounts of the aftermath. It was an eye-opening experience for the students, who were all born after the event.
The Environmental Science class went on a field trip to the Anne Kolb Nature Center in Hollywood. While there the students went on an ecosystem boat tour and learned about the different species of mangroves. They also climbed the Observation Tour and were able to observe the mangroves and surrounding ecosystems.
Please note that some classes are already full this year including Elementary Junior Chef, the Elementary 3rd-5th block on Fridays, and the American History class (if you still need this class please let us know so we can add it to your “Wish List”). We offer continuous enrollment so if you’re looking to sign up for classes or add some electives to your student’s course load, don’t hesitate to contact us!
