Applications for the summer Marine Science Program can still be downloaded at any time from the website prior to April 15th  at http://www-grms.stjohns.k12.fl.us/marinescience/ The link also will have a complete day by day curriculum for each grade level, parent information, and a video from last year’s program.  Please return the application to your child’s science teacher to be forwarded to our program.

This summer program is available to all students currently in grades five through seven and has been sponsored by the school district since 1982.  Three eight day sessions are held at Gamble Rogers Middle  School with bus transportation provided.  The dates for the three sessions this summer will be May 29th– June 7th, June 10th– June 20th, and June 24th -July 3rd.  Small classes of 13-15 students are separated by grade level.  All instructors in the program are St. Johns County School District teachers.

The Marine Science Program is a carefully designed experience for responsible students who are interested in learning about our local marine environments.  Learning is “hands on” in the field with students kayaking, canoeing, boating, hiking, snorkeling, sailing, windsurfing, surfing, SUP, (stand up paddleboarding), etc.  Specific grade level activities and curriculum are attached to the applications and are also available from the website.

More information about the program can be had by emailing [email protected] .

It’s time to start thinking about purchasing the 2018-2019 yearbook. We are doing things a little differently this year.
1. There will only be online ordering of the 2018-2019 yearbook. Leonard’s online can take payments from credit and debit cards as well from a checking account.

2. We have three price tiers by date. Prices are as follows:

$15 until January 1st
$25 from Jan 2-March 1st
$35 after March 2nd

Informational flyers will be coming home with your student in the next day or two.
Orders can be placed at www.leonards.com/yearbooks access code: C449531

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me.
