Fourth Graders adjusting well
Fourth graders' "new kids on the block" attitude is becoming a thing of the past as they now integrate into the routine of St. Augustine. Icaro Dacruz (pictured above) works hard on RAZ KIDS, an online reading program used in fourth and fifth grade.
Teacher Feature!
Paula Eisenhandler
This week's teacher feature is Mrs. Paula Eisenhandler, fifth grade homeroom teacher. She has been teaching at St. Augustine for 5 years.

"I absolutely love my job teaching fifth grade. There is always something new and exciting that happens every single day. The fifth-graders become my children or my babies as they like to be called. They always make my day brighter!" says Eisenhandler.

You can find Mrs. E on the second floor with a smile and nickname ready for you.
