As we near the end of Quarter 1, it is certainly evident that the 2019-2020 school year is moving right along! My school visits have continued to show me our students' level of engagement and the innovative classroom learning is second to none.
A reminder for our Class of 2020 seniors: the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) completion period opens on October 1st. Click here for information regarding the application, FAFSA Completion Event dates, and helpful resources. Remember, the earlier you apply, the more opportunities for funding are available to you.
This year, our annual community STEAM event takes on a new name! The 2019-2020 STEAM Expo will be held on Saturday, February 1, 2020, at Golden Gate High School. The Call for Proposals is now open. If you are interested in sharing a dynamic, hands-on STEAM activity or mini-project in our STEAM Village, click here for more info.
Finally, our 5th Annual CCPS 5K Walk-Run is scheduled a little earlier this year than in the past. The race is set for Saturday, November 16th, and registration is now open. So, click here to register today and start your training for an energy-filled Saturday morning! Share your training on social media using #CCPS5K and tag @collierschools and @suncoastcu.
Have a fantastic October!
