Just a few short months ago our Backpack Friday program here at CHS was accepted into the Community Rewards Program sponsored by First Federal Bank of Florida.
Through this Community Rewards Program, First Federal will contribute $.50 for each qualified signature based transaction. This campaign started in 12/1/2016 and was to run thru 05/31/2017 with a maximum contribution to our Backpack Friday program of $1000.00.
With that being said, today our Backpack Friday program was presented a check in the amount of $1000.00 from First Federal Bank of Florida. Not only did we reach our target of $1000.00, but we were able to do so before our May 31st goal!!
We cannot express how deeply thankful we are to have the unconditional support from First Federal and its employees. We sincerely thank each and everyone at First Federal Bank of Florida!!!
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!

On Monday, March 20th, RMS eighth grade students were treated to a visit from Miss Florida 2016 Courtney Sexton. Ms. Sexton came to speak with RMS students about the dangers of alcohol and drug use. Included in her presentation was education about gateway drugs and how use of these could potentially lead to use of harsher substances. Ms. Sexton and the students shared preventative strategies that involved their avoiding the usage of drugs and actions students could take when friends and loved ones are presented with the opportunity to use dangerous substances.
Summers Elementary recently held our Summers Showcase. Students were able to play games at the many game booths, fly a plane at the Aviation booth, watch performances by our talented students and sample many delicious treats. The Lake City Fire Department, Lake City Middle School Band, and Sepulveda's ATA Martial Arts students also came to showcase their talents.
Students also celebrated "Art from the Heart." Author and Illustrator Denise Duren came and showcased her art. She presented her book and illustrations to students during assemblies and also spoke to parents and guests during the evening event. Every student helped created an art masterpiece as part of a PTO fundraiser for their classroom. Parents and those attending the Summers Showcase were able to bid on the canvases during a silent auction. The winning bidder for each canvas had his name placed in a drawing for a 50 inch HDTV!
Students, teachers, and parents were amazed at how talented Summers students are!
Westside Elementary celebrated Positive Post It Note Day last Friday. Every student, faculty and staff member received a postive Post It note. Notes were posted all over campus, on classroom doors and in the walkways. It was a special day to encourage kindness and celebrate all the wonderful individuals that make up our Westside Family.
Congratulations to our second and third grade students who recently gained membership into the Jr. Einstein Club. They achieved outstanding scores in math fact fluency. Last Thursday, they enjoyed a morning of STEM related activities to celebrate their accomplishment.
Students are becoming familiar with the new flexible seating in the music room while playing a game of Scoot, a review game that allows them 30 seconds to answer a question before moving to the next seat.
