K-Kids is a school-sponsored club that teaches students the value of helping others by developing community service projects. This program provides numerous opportunities to develop self-esteem, leadership skills, morals, standards, and respect for others. Our K-Kids club broke last year’s CAN DRIVE record by collecting more than 700 pounds of non-perishable food for the Second Harvest Community Food Bank. Thank you, Mr. Banes, for your leadership and heart for our community.
Our Book Fair was a huge success. Our Media Center was transformed into the most beautiful Enchanted Forest by some of the most amazing volunteers. It was a joy to see the students’ faces when they walked in for the first time … they absolutely loved it! We want to thank the many people who volunteered during the Book Fair week. The money that our school makes during the book fair goes toward the purchase of new library books, as our students love to read!
Kindergarten and First Grade Performance
Our Kindergarten and first-grade students performed Winter Wonderland at the Lake Nona High School Performing Arts Center on Monday, Dec. 10. We cannot thank our special area teachers enough for equipping and encouraging our students by planning such a wonderful evening for our families. Thank you, Ms. Lapuz, Ms. Towle, Ms. Lentz, Ms. Russell, Ms. Martz, Ms. Stroshane, Mr. Alvarez, and Mr. Nieves.
Girls on the Run
Our Girls on the Run program participated in the 5K at the Valencia College West Campus on Saturday, Dec. 8. We are so very proud of all the girls who were a part of this program and of their hard work and time spent training. We want to thank Ms. Carra, Ms. Angelakos, and Ms. Provenzano for coaching our girls. Their time, investment and encouragement help our girls reach their goal!
Boys on the Right Track
We are so proud of our Boys on the Right Track program at Sun Blaze. This is the first program of its kind in Florida for boys, and Sun Blaze considers it an honor to lead the way. Our boys participated in the Jingle Bell 5K on Saturday, Dec. 8, at Lake Baldwin and did an outstanding job! Thank you, Mr. Alvarez and Mr. Nieves, for leading this program and the great role models you are for our boys.
