In the last few weeks, our students in Grades 6–8 partnered with the CROS Ministries Gleaning Program for their service project day. They helped to carry out their “food recovery strategy that allows produce that is below top-market grade or unmarketable, but equally nutritious and beneficial, to be harvested and distributed to the food insecure of Palm Beach and Martin Counties instead of being plowed back into the soil.” Farmers donate the excess produce that they cannot sell to CROS Ministries then volunteers are mobilized to harvest the produce. Our students spent several hours in local fields harvesting bell peppers that...

These talented 6th–8th-grade students attended performance workshops, then competed in multiple events to showcase their acting, singing, and overall performance abilities. To qualify to attend the State Festival, they first had to compete and receive a high enough score at the District level, which happened locally in November. At that competition, nine of our performance and technical theater “events” scored in that range, so those events are what the students then presented in Orlando.
