FSU Elementary News and Notes

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please note this information from the City of Pembroke Pines Police Department:

The City of Pembroke Pines Police Department wants to remind the community to be safe this holiday season and not be vulnerable to crime. Listed below are some tips to follow to help prevent becoming a victim.

• Stay alert to your surroundings. Don’t leave your purse unattended.
• Carry a small wallet and avoid carrying a large amount of cash.
• Immediately report lost/stolen credit cards.
• Don’t overload yourself with packages.
• Beware of strangers approaching you or around you, this may be a method of distracting you with the intention of taking your belongings.
• Try not to shop alone.
• Holiday shoppers make perfect targets for vehicle break-ins. Caution is advised when choosing to leave valuables or shopping bags in your vehicle.
• Update or create a home inventory. Take photos or videos of items, and list their descriptions and serial numbers. If your home is burglarized, having a detailed inventory can help identify and claim stolen items.
• Also, write down any account numbers and phone numbers to contact banks and lenders should you need to cancel any financial accounts if you lose or have your wallet stolen.
• Whenever you leave your home, make sure your doors and windows are secure, alarm systems are on and packages out of view to deter a potential burglar.
• If you are traveling out of town, keep your lights on timers and make arrangements to have your neighbors retrieve your mail.

When arriving or leaving a mall or store, be aware of who is congregated around the entrances and parking lots. Use caution when approaching your car and take t

All students in grades 2-5 received user names and passwords from Mrs. Rivera this week to log on to TYNKER and begin a series of 6 lessons on basic programming. The program is a FREE educators' classroom introduction kit. It is self-paced and very user friendly.

The 'Hour of Code' is a nationwide initiative by CSEdWeek and to introduce computer programming to 10 million students and encourage them to learn programming. Tynker is proud to be a curriculum provider for the Hour of Code.

What do these activities teach? The puzzles and creative activities are designed to teach students computational thinking and the basics of computer programming. Students solve each puzzle by programming visual code blocks to achieve a goal.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please note this information about the parent portal for FOCUS.

As mentioned at the St. Augustine meeting this morning, there will be a 4th grade classroom t-shirt which will be worn on the Billie Swamp field trip this week Friday, November 21st and it will also be worn on the St. Augustine field trip in May for 1 of the 2 days. For safety reasons, all students will wear the classroom shirt if they are attending either Billie Swamp or St. Augustine. All parents chaperoning either trip, will also wear the classroom shirt so the students and chaperones can be identified as a group.

I will need student and parent sizes in order to get the shirts printed on time for the field trip. There will be a cost of $8 for each shirt you order.

The $8 cost is for Youth and Adult Sizes from Small to XLarge. Shirt size of 2XL is an additional $2 and 3XL is an additional $3 added to the cost of the shirt.

PLEASE GO TO THE FOLLOWING WEBSITE AT and submit your t-shirt orders today. I will place the shirt orders on Monday at 3:00pm so if you order after the deadline, the order will not be placed.

Please take the time to do it today so I can get the orders in and ready in time for your field trip.

Print the response confirmation page with all of your information on it and submit it with the payment made to PPCES FSU PTA for the total amount of the shirts. If you are ordering several shirts for your child and family, you must enter the information for each person separately. For example, if you are ordering 3 shirts, you MUST enter 3 different submissions on the website (3 times).

Payment must be stapled to the printed forms and submitted to the front office or to your child's teacher by Tuesday, November 18th at 3:00pm. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at [email protected] directly.

Thank you for your time and support as we vol
