Students are back from the Florida Green Energy and Climate Conference. Different high schools and middle schools were invited to participate in an essay competition. Each school was only allowed to submit three essays. Five essays were chosen as winners. One essay was written by PSCMS student Wilmar E. She recorded her essay with Our Greener World, a radio station. All five essays will be aired on Thursdays at 6:00 pm on 95.9 FM, 106.9 FM, and 960 AM Seaview Radio.Ms. O’Shea
Saturday morning the Girls on the Run Club met Ms. Hartman, Ms. Reynolds, Ms. Cayea, Ms. Rayman, Ms. Simone, Ms. Miller, Ms. Tome, Ms. Johnson, and Ms. Pearson at Lake Worth Beach for a 5K run for breast cancer. Ms Cayea said “Even though I run, I ran the 5K to encourage the girls. To me this was a rewarding experience. I was very proud of all our girls; they did an amazing job!” Goldie Lamarca and Emily Jardine, members of the girls in the run club, say it was “Tiring, but we had a blast!” Dakota B.
Author Kara Floyds treated the sixth graders in Ms. Jarzabkowski’s class to a mini writing workshop where she talked about her new book, published in January. Her book is about a girl just starting middle school, a perfect book for the sixth graders! Ms. Jarzabkowski’s classes wrote advice for the soon-to-be sixth graders. One of the students said she got to have a fun hands-on experience because she got to read her advice to the class. We asked the author, Kara Floyd, what her inspiration was for writing this book. She said that she wanted to let kids know that they’re not alone and that everybody has problems they can overcome if they stay true to themselves. Ashley H. and Claudia C.
