Academic and Testing Calendar

Administration's Corner

WHILE WAITING AT THE BUS STOP:

  • When waiting for the bus stop make sure you are at least three giant steps, or six feet away from the street.
  • Never stand or sit near the street when waiting at your stop. Bus stops are not places to run or play.
  • Wear clothing that makes it easy for drivers to see you. Bright colors like yellow, orange and white are great!
  • Pay attention to your surroundings. Put down phones and take out your earbuds so you can hear and see what’s happening around you.
  • If a trusted adult (parent, grandparent, friend) has not visited your bus stop lately, ask them to come one morning or afternoon. Introduce them to your bus driver and show them how you stay safe while you wait for the bus!
  • If you drop something and it goes near or under the bus, never go get it. Tell your driver so he or she can help you.
  • Never walk behind your school bus. If you have to walk in front of your bus, make sure you walk five giant steps, or 10 feet, ahead so your driver can see you.
  • Wait until the bus has stopped and the doors are open before approaching the bus.
  • Never talk to strangers at the bus stop. Always alert your bus driver as soon as possible if a stranger tries to talk to you or pick you up.

WHILE ON THE BUS:

  • Do not speak loudly or make loud noises that could distract your driver.
  • Always buckle up!
  • Remain in your seat for the entire ride and keep the aisle clear!

Volunteering

  • Any parents or guardians so wants to volunteer must complete the Volunteer Form (See Attachment) and provide a copy of their driver's license to Mr. McKeever. If you have any questions, please email Mr. McKeever DouglasIM@leeschools.net.

Scholarship Newsletter

University of Florida Scholarship

  • Seniors planning to apply to UF and the Honors Program at UF, see below for information regarding the Lombardi Scholar Program.
  • The goal of this program is to identify creative, forward-thinking individuals with an interest in developing global leadership skills through study abroad experiences provided by the University of Florida Honors Program. In addition to a financial stipend and four fully-funded summer enrichment experiences, Scholars are provided with specialized academic advisors to assist them in making the most out of their time at UF. All Scholars enjoy a diverse peer network of successful, engaged students to offer assistance in involvement and adjusting to campus life.
  • The Honors Program is looking for high school students from a variety of backgrounds who not only excel academically but who are motivated to make a positive difference in their communities and foster personal interests outside of school. In order to be eligible for these programs, students must be nominated by high school administrators. Students with exceptional potential in one or two areas often stand out more than those that are merely well-rounded. Past Scholars have gone on to serve as US Fulbright Scholars and have been recognized as Goldwater Scholars, a Gates-Cambridge Scholar, and an NIH Oxford-Cambridge Scholar.
  • See attached flyer for additional information. To apply, please go to: http://www.honors.ufl.edu/prospective/lombardi--stamps-scholarships/applications/
  • **The application deadline for Lombardi Scholar is Tuesday, November 12th, 2019.
  • **You must apply to UF and the honors program to be eligible. The deadline for both of those is November 1st.
  • Interested students can email directly to carolinedavidson@ufl.edu with questions about being a UF Honors scholar.
  • Finally, find additional information regarding the honors program at: http://www.honors.ufl.edu/prospective/lombardi--stamps-scholarships/lombardi-stamps-faq/
