Get Fit for FIT 5K Run

Organization: Families In Transition, a program of The Foundation for Seminole County Public Schools

Date: Saturday, March 7, 2015

Time: 8:00 5K starts/kids run starts shortly thereafter

Location: Seminole State College Sanford/Lake Mary Campus

Address: 100 Weldon Blvd, Sanford, FL 32773

Phone: 407-746-8518

Description:

This outstanding 5K is unique in that community members and homeless students have a chance to run or walk together during the event. Participants will not be aware of which students are homeless, as a reminder that homelessness can happen to anyone.

Families In Transition works with the community to ensure that all barriers are removed so homeless children can attend and succeed in school. The basic needs of homeless students in Seminole County Public Schools are addressed through community support – clothing, school supplies, food, hygiene items, emergency assistance, and other necessities. Last school year 2,001 students were helped by this program. So far, we have identified more than 1,670 students this school year.

Presented by The Sliver Law Firm, P.A., to benefit Families In Transition, a program of The Foundation for Seminole County Public Schools.

Cost: Kids Run FREE (optional donation at registration)

Seminole County Public Schools Students: $10 for 5K

All Others: $25 through February 28, 2015; $30 March1-March 6, 2015; $35 day of the race

To register and to learn more about the race, visit the Families In Transition website, www.seminolehomelesskids.org . Please call The Silver Law Firm at (407) 608-6080 or Families In Transition at (407) 746-8518 regarding sponsorships.



Attention Parents

  
Most after school activities (practices, club meetings, etc.) end by 5:30.  Because it gets dark around this time, students must be picked up by a parent/guardian.  For their safety, students are not permitted to walk home or to the library at dusk or after dark.

SCPS REMAINS ONE OF THE TOP SCHOOL DISTRICTS

SCPS is ranked #1 of the 17 largest districts in reading, mathematics and science. I am very proud of our incredible students, I am thrilled for our hard working teachers, administrators and staff and am cheering for our incredibly supportive community” stated SCPS Superintendent Dr. Walt Griffin.

In an era of increased statewide assessment and accountability, SCPS students continue to outperform the state in Reading by 10 points and 12 points in Mathematics. Students, parents, and teachers have a reason to celebrate this success and the tremendous effort put forth this year to reach for standards of “proficiency” and beyond, as defined by the State of Florida.

Part of the reason for that success is our progress based monitoring efforts, which allow us to provide personalized instruction to all our students. As many are aware, progress based monitoring is required three times a year by the state in reading. In addition, SCPS also utilizes progress based monitoring for both science and math in an effort to improve student achievement through identifying skills that help determine a student’s strengths and allow us to focus on areas that need improvement.

In particular, we can not emphasize enough the hard work of our classroom teachers who continue to deliver exceptional instruction to all students. Their work and planning translates to performance measured on mandated statewide assessments but it goes beyond just “testing.” They prepare our children for success in the 21st Century and the data overwhelmingly supports it! This is why SCPS continues to remain one of the highest achieving school districts in the state.
