The week of October 21-October 25 was our School Spirit and Red Ribbon week. Red Ribbon week is an alcohol, tobacco, and other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign observed annually in October in the United States.


Each year, we hold our Spirit Week in conjunction with Red Ribbon week and cap it off with a school-wide pep rally and a game of flag football with the girls playing and the guys cheering them on! We also invite all students to take part in the Homecoming Dance the following day. Because we don't have sports teams of our own at Lorenzo Walker, we have to be innovative at how we involve our students in physical activities, team-building and becoming involved in our school culture.


Every year, PowderPuff gets bigger and better. Congratulations to all the coaches and students for giving of their time and energy in order to continue this tradition. Thank you for encouraging the students and remaining positive role models throughout the games. The level of sportsmanship and camaraderie was wonderful to see among the spectators, cheerleaders, coaches and players. If you have never been to this annual event, make sure you put it on your calendar for next year.


This year, we had the biggest group of students participating in the school spirit events, playing and cheering compared to years past. The 9th graders could have been split up into three different teams, they had so much participation. I hope this is a trend that continues because studies show that students who participate in physical activity do better in school, learn teamwork and goal-setting skills. It also promotes psychological well-being, builds self-esteem, reduces stress and anxiety and reduces feelings of depression. However, champions were crowned at the end of the game....


Congratulations to Coach Monahan and the Freshmen girls for winning the Championship. They played well and beat the Juniors 20-6 in the championship game.

I am extremely proud to be a part of the Lorenzo Walker family!

On Sat., October 5th, the veterinary assisting classes lent their support to the Veterinary Services for Animals vaccination clinic at Max Hasse Community Park. Over 135 families came out with their pets to receive low cost vaccinations and other veterinary services. The students assisted the doctors and staff at the clinic gaining practical knowledge and experience. They did an outstanding job. We will be assisting at 2 more clinics this school year; Jan. 11th in Immokalee and March 7th in Naples.
