Principal's Message

Miss Lowe

Dear Hawk Families,
We are excited that March has arrived here at Citrus Springs Elementary. We welcome the longer days to come and the beginning of Spring! With the third quarter ending in just two weeks, our teachers are reporting re-markable academic growth in our students. The evidence of this progress can be seen throughout the hallways and in the classrooms. This is the time of year that the fruits of our labors in education begin to shine. I could-n’t be prouder of the students and staff.
Time was spent in February revisiting our schoolwide focus on kindness. Our staff participated in a professional learning afternoon that reexamined school culture and the value of kindness. You may have heard your child talking about the hidden inspirational quote cards, random acts of kindness cards, or the golden tickets that have become a part of our daily lives. We have also added kindness to our schoolwide expectations. Hawks are: Re-spectful, Responsible, Safe, and Kind. If we focus on these four expecta-tions in our daily actions as learners, we are bound to find success. Our entire staff is committed to ensuring that positive citizens are developed within our walls and that those traits become woven into the fabric of being a Hawk. Together we are a devoted family who always perseveres. #ADFWAP
Looking ahead, Spring Break is scheduled the week of March 25 - 29, 2019. When we return from break we will begin our first round of Florida Standards Assessments (FSA). Our fourth and fifth grade students will complete the FSA Writing Assessment on Tuesday, April 2, 2019. Then on April 3rd and 4th our third-grade students will take the FSA Reading assess-ment. These are district-wide assessment administration dates. It is very important that all students attend school for the administration of the as-sessments and arrive well-rested. Breakfast is provided at no charge to all students taking a state assessment. Research tells us that a protein packed meal following a good night’s sleep is key to optimal performance. We ask for nothing more than your child’s best as they have been well pre-pared all year long. FSA is one opportunity for students to show how much they have learned. I have great confidence in the work of our students and teachers and look forward to celebrating our successes when the scores come in.

Sincerely,

Using Digital Tools

The Citrus County School District would like to remind you of the option to receive text messages from the district, in the event of an emergency. In order for parents/guardians to receive emergency related text messages from the school district, the parent/guardian must have their cell phone number on their student's Emergency Contact Form on file at the child's school. This feature is available for the first three cell phone numbers listed on the student's Emergency Contact Form. Text Messages will only be sent for Emergency notifications. If you currently have your cell phone number on your child's Emergency Contact Form at your student's school, and you have not opted in already, you can take advantage of this opportunity by texting 'YES' to 67587.
