    Dear Orange Grove Families,


    It is with much excitement that we welcome everyone back to the 2018-19 school year.  We are anxious to meet our new kindergarten families and look forward to continuing the relationships with our returning families.   This is my favorite time of year to reflect on last year and prepare to do it BETTER in 2018-19.  Our news hours our 8:45 – 2:45.  Our goal remains to have everyone in their seat ready for announcements at 8:40AM. 


    As we work to maintain our A grade, we will be deliberate, purposeful, and focus on the desired outcome in everything we do.  Our 2018-19 theme is #OneSmallThing.  #OneSmallThing is based on the simple idea that a BIG impact comes from focusing on one small change at a time.  Take some time to think of your #OneSmallThing and encourage your child to do the same.  I will…


    Feel free to stop by or call me anytime.  My personal cell is 727-455-7891.  Your input is truly valued.  Read a great book with your child and have a great Orange Grove Day!


    From the heart,


    Christine Porter, Ed.D, Principal
