• Spring is here! It is hard to believe that we only have two months left in the 2021-22 school year! We have much to look forward to as we continue through a busy time of the year.
    Last month, we were honored to welcome Florida Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran and the State Board of Education for their March Board Meeting at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Administrative Center. This is the second time in four years that we have had the pleasure of hosting a State Board Meeting. We were #CCPSProud to showcase our District's many accomplishments.
    Thank you to all who attended our #CCPSFamily Day at the Fair. It was a great evening filled with rides, food, and smiles! Thank you to the Collier Fair for continuing to collaborate with us on this event. Also in March, we held the 2022 Optimist Club of Naples Spelling Bee and crowned Oakridge Middle's Naresh Ram as our Champion. Fun fact - Naresh's brother, Bharath, won the Bee in both 2018 and 2019! Congratulations!
    Best wishes to all students participating in academic competitions in April! We are looking forward to the Superintendent's Art Gallery, Middle School Scholar Bowl, Middle and High School Honors Orchestra Concert, the Innovation Competition, and many culminating STEAM competitions throughout the District.
    Finally, we look forward to celebrating our teachers at the Champions For Learning 32nd Annual Golden Apple Celebration of Teachers on April 22, 2022. Visit www.ChampionsForLearning.org/golden-apple for more information about the event.
    Let's continue the year with phenomenal #CCPSSuccess!
