Twin Lakes Academy Elementary hosts Curriculum Night

SNL TLAE Curriculum Night 1601

By NewsLine Staff

Twin Lakes Academy Elementary school will give parents and caregivers the opportunity to review and discuss all aspects of the school’s curriculum at Curriculum Night, to be held on Thursday, Jan. 21 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. This free school-wide event is open to all Twin Lakes Academy Wildcat students and their families.

Teachers have a variety of games, activities and displays in store for all grade levels. Attendees can solve a problem using a life size number bond made out of hula hoops, walk through a story map with their child or play a round of math bingo.

Students can also try their hand at coding during the Hour of Code, a fun introduction to computer science.

The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens’ live animal ambassadors will be on hand as well as Shiva Center’s LEGO Robotics team. Engaging experiments will be led by The Miracle of Science. Mathnasium will offer a super-sized game of Jenga or Connect 4 and UNF’s environmental educators will tell the story of Ollie the Osprey from their new children’s book.

Children will be given a map to help them navigate the many exhibits and discover the hidden treasure at the end of their journey. Perhaps they will even find a literary treasure to add to their home library after a visit to the Scholastic Book Fair. Students also have a chance to win a book fair gift card and LEGO set by entering the Student Council’s annual LEGO contest.

Food will be available for purchase from the What’s the Catch food truck and Kilwins ice cream.

Contact the school office at 904-538-0238 for additional information.
