In July, Mrs. Van Delinder, Personal Financial Literacy teacher at Yulee High School, received a REEL (Regional Economic Education & Leadership) Award from the Florida Council on Economic Education. FCEE honors outstanding teachers across Florida who deliver personal finance and economic education in their classrooms. The award states that it is "based upon your outstanding commitment to integrating financial literacy, entrepreneurial thinking, and other economic education concepts with your course curriculum." As a recipient of the award, Mrs. Van Delinder received a $200 Amazon Gift Card and a scholarship to attend the CEE National Conference.

Outdoor Learning Space Makeover

Bryceville Elementary's outdoor learning space is taking shape. Huge thank you to the volunteers, John and Gayle, for all their hard work. Now just waiting for back-ordered picnic tables to come it to make it complete.

Department of Defense and the Navy provided STEM Materials

The Department of Defense and the Navy provide STEM opportunities in local schools. With Kings' Bay so close, they want to support our schools' existing or desired efforts. We were asked to poll our STEM educators, make notes of things/ideas we'd like to have and make a “wish list.” Items from teachers' wishlists were delivered as they began preparing for the 21-22 school year.
