On Saturday, April 30th, six students from Sinclair ES competed in the PWCS Game 24 Tournament against other elementary students from around the school division.  Representing Sinclair were:
Grade 5: Emma Monin and Saaya Vahil
Grade 4: Roberto Solito and Pishoy Elias
Grade 3: Rachel Nicholas and Christian Herrara

These students were selected to compete since they were the grade level winners from our school championship as part of our extra-curricula Game 24 Club. The game teaches students the relationship between numbers and helps them develop computational fluency.
Our students represented our school well through hard work and determination. They made history for Sinclair ES as there has never been a team from the school to compete in the school division tournament. The team was under the coaching guidance of Mrs. Mirkovich, Sinclair ES Math Specialist.

3rd Grade News


On February 19th, Sinclair third graders had some rain forest and desert visitors. Reptiles Alive premieres live animals from both the desert and rain forest. They have colorful, exotic animals and fun and friendly wildlife educators.

Students were well entertained and very excited they were able to get up close and touch some reptiles. This was a great way to tie in our animal adaptations science unit. Students could see first-hand the physical characteristics these animals have to adapt to their habitat.

Santa Visits Sinclair!
Sinclair's Kindergarten students were treated to an extra special surprise...a visit from Santa, Santa's Elf, Mrs. Claus, and lots of Reindeer. Sinclair was fortunate to be one of the stops on the Prince William County Police Department's Motor Unit Annual Santa Ride. Excitement filled the air as the officers visited with students. One student exclaimed, "I'm asking Santa for a motorcycle for Christmas!" Thank you Prince William County Police Department!
Scavenger Hunt
"Run, run, fast as you can! You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man!"

On Monday, students from Mrs. Rusiecki's and Mrs. Childers' class participated in a scavenger hunt to catch the Gingerbread Man. He led them around the school, leaving clues for them to follow. The Gingerbread Man finally led them back to Room 121 and where he had left maps of the room. The students used the maps to locate the Gingerbread Man.

50th Day Celebration
Kindergarten students in Mrs. Corbin and Mrs. Besore's class celebrate the 50th day of school with fun math and history activities throughout the day on Friday, November 13th. 
National Young Readers Day
In the past on National Young Readers Day, Sinclair has partnered with parents and businesses in our area, but this year we were fortunate to welcome military personnel for Veterans Day!  Our military guest readers were: Staff Sergeant Daniel Crouch, U.S. Army; Staff Sergeant Eric Frankwitt, U.S. Army; Staff Sergeant Michael Kasuba, U.S. Army; Sergeant Marco Hilera, USMC; EM2 William Jackson, U.S. Navy. PWC Human Rights Commissioner Mr. Eugene Brown served as the NYRD coordinator and guest reader. Other volunteer readers were Ms. Alyson Satterwhite (Gainesville District School board), Dr. Woodson (principal), Kelli Williams (Reading Specialist), Gina Centamore and Rachel Wilson (Title I Reading).  We value this opportunity because we believe reading with children is one of the most crucial things you can do for a child's future.  Seeing and hearing adults read can engage children, help them learn, and inspire them to become readers as well.  It’s important children see that reading is something that is a part of life for all people.  It’s fun and it helps us learn!

The Fire Department responded and after a thorough investigation, the all clear was given.
Thanks to the professionalism of staff and the cooperation of students, we experienced minimal disruption of our instructional activities. The handling of the situation is a further illustration that the safety of our students and staff remains our top priority.
Please do not hesitate to contact me, should you have any questions or concerns. Your ongoing support is crucial to the continued success of students and staff at Sinclair Elementary School.

Estimados padres/tutores de Sinclair Elementary School:

De acuerdo con nuestro compromiso continuo para comunicarnos de una manera efectiva con nuestra comunidad escolar, les escribo para informarles que esta tarde evacuamos brevemente el edificio debido a un fuerte olor causado por un problema eléctrico. El Departamento de Bomberos respondió a nuestra llamada y, después de una investigación minuciosa, se dio el visto bueno de que todo estaba bien.

Gracias al profesionalismo del personal y la cooperación del alumnado, tuvimos una interrupción mínima de nuestras actividades de enseñanza. La forma en la que se manejó la situación demuestra una vez más que la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes y del personal continúa siendo nuestra mayor prioridad.

Por favor, no duden en comunicarse conmigo si tuvieran alguna pregunta o inquietud. El apoyo permanente que nos brindan es de vital importancia para el éxito continuo de los estudiantes y el personal de Sinclair Elementary School.
