As we begin our second quarter, we are excited to offer Sun Blaze STEAM Clubs for the second year. STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) Clubs will run during the second and third quarters of the school year. Sun Blaze teachers direct the clubs. STEAM Clubs are completely free, however, students are required to fill out an application and write a short essay for the selection process. STEAM Clubs include Stellar Scientists, Stage Craft, Math, Coding/Escape, STEAM, Mad Scientist, Arts & Crafts, and the Girls Who Code club. In addition to our STEAM Clubs, Sun Blaze offers additional opportunities for students to participate in the Sun Blaze Choir, News Team, Drama Team, Dance, Chess Club, Girls on the Run, Boys on the Right Track, and K-Kids.
We invite our students to wander into an Enchanted Forest Book Fair on Nov. 7-15. The book fair is a whimsical place full of irresistible books that kids cannot wait to read so their imaginations can grow! Family and community late night shopping will be Wednesday, Nov. 14, from 2-6:30 p.m.
During Bully Prevention week, our students were encouraged to make positive choices and be Dream Makers and not Dream Breakers during the Omegaman assembly sponsored by our PTA. Our superhero presenter snapped a baseball bat over his leg, ripped a phonebook in two, and bent steel in his teeth. Omegaman used these feats of strength as object lessons to encourage anti-bullying and to move the students’ hearts and minds to contemplate positive change and a new direction for their lives!
We are thankful for all of our Partners in Education. We want to thank the following partners that have provided incentives and sponsored events for Sun Blaze since August 2018: Kevin and Yvette Kendrick (The Kendrick Team), John Madison (John Madison Landscape Inc.), and Richard G. Varner (GO Realty).
We always want to invite our Lake Nona community to follow our social media links to stay connected with all that is happening at Sun Blaze Elementary. The website address is SunBlazeES@ocps.net. You can follow us on Facebook at SunBlazeElementary.
