Congratulations to the following students who have currently made 100% fluency in Reflex math! They are Kerrigan, Nick and Sahil. However, close behind are Chessie,  Gordie, Michael,Keely, Kella, and Cade. They are all in the 90% range for fluency. We have several students who are coming on strong being fluent in at least 80% of their facts. They are Prabhmeeka, Gordie, Addison, Caitlyn, Khamiah, Ryan, Kayden, and Trinity. I have already put those who have mastered addition on to the multiplication games. I am looking forward to adding the other students as soon as possible.

Remember...if you don't use this website on a regular basis, your growth will be very limited. Thank you to all who have embraced this fun way to learn their math facts!

Florida Achieves

Are you ready to sharpen up your reading comprehension skills? I HOPE SO! This is the FOCUS website. First, go to, log in to the FOCUS side of the website (the right side).

Your sign in name will be your last name and first initial (For example, if your name is John Smith, your sign in would be smithj)

Once you have your sign in, enter your password which is the number 16, the first four letters of your last name and your birthday day, then month. (For example John Smith, born on January 2nd would have the password of 16smit0102)

Once you have logged in, you can choose any link to work on. These assignments align with topics and skills we have gone over in class. They all build reading comprehension. Also, the reading skills correlate with the types of questions on weekly reading tests and on the FCAT.

You can achieve anything you set your mind on!
