Recently, Sun Blaze students participated in the Boosterthon Fun Run sponsored by our PTA. The Fun Run was a HUGE success. Our students raised more than $24,000, with the money going toward enrichment programs at Sun Blaze. Reaching our goal through the generosity of people is something to celebrate and share with our families and community. Hundreds of supporters gathered to watch students run laps three different times throughout the day. An event like this brings out the best in people, and we were proud to be a part of it.
For Agriculture Literacy Day, Sun Blaze welcomed Mr. and Mrs. Madison of John Madison Landscape Inc. Mr. Madison read to all of our first-grade classrooms to help spread the word about Florida agriculture. Each student received a copy of the book, These Florida Farms! The Madison family are incredible supporters of Sun Blaze and a valued Partner in Education.
We are so proud of our Sun Blaze Dance Team for a very successful experience at Dance Performance Assessment (DPA) at Dr. Phillips High School. The students were able to attend a Master Class with Ms. Gina, a professional dancer and dance instructor. They were adjudicated in front of a panel of judges and had an outstanding evening performance.
In November, Sun Blaze took part in the Lake Nona Relay for Life at Lake Nona High School. It was a wonderful gathering as a community to help bring awareness and raise financial support for the American Cancer Society in the fight against cancer. We had many come out to support the event and pledge their support!
We would like to invite the 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, and you can follow us on Facebook at SunBlazeElementary.
