9th Grade FGCU Literacy Festival field trip

The Florida Gulf Coast University College of Education Annual Literacy Festival is the only university-sponsored literacy festival in the state of Florida. Every year it connects children's and young adult authors and illustrators with over 2000 students from regional Title I schools. The College of Education purchases participating authors’ books and distributes them regionally before the event. Every student receives a book! College of Education teacher candidates visit classrooms to study the participating authors and integrate their books into the curriculum across their disciplines. The day of the FGCU COE Literacy Festival features author book signings, interactive workshops with authors, digital literacy, and STREAM activities.

The Laws of Life essay contest is an opportunity for students to share their writing on the topic of character traits. This year, there were over 5,000 essays submitted. At the school level, we recognize five students and their parents from every ELA classroom with a luncheon and ceremony. This year we were fortunate to have two students reach the semi-final stage of the competition. Congratulations to 9th grader Samuel Mejia (teacher, Mel Simmons-Rosen) and 10th grader, Djounie Mergelus (teacher- Rita Kentros). We also had one finalist! Congratulations to 9th grader Leisha Elusnor (teacher Mel-Simmons-Rosen).

Each year, Dr. Patton, our Superintendent, meets with seniors from every high school to hear about their experiences in K-12. Our students did an amazing job representing LWTHS! Congratulations and THANK YOU to Jonathan Reytor, Carl Veus, Karla Serrano, and Tori Moxam.

The Wall that Heals field trip

11th and 12th graders were able to travel to Marco Island for a field trip to view the traveling Vietnam War wall of honor. The wall is only here for a limited time and probably won't make it back to Collier County for another 4-5 years. What a great opportunity for our students to learn about the history and sacrifices of the men and women in our armed services.
