February was a busy month at the Jacksonville site of MYcroSchool.
MYcroSchool Jacksonville Guidance Counselor, Dr. Donna Williams, invited Florida State College Jacksonville and a representative from the United States Army to educate students about their options after graduation from high school.
Science Teacher, Christiana Swanson and ESE Teacher Kelly Treat hosted the Jacksonville Zoo, which came to educate students about some of the zoo animals and animal taxonomy.
In addition to the visits, MYcroSchool Jacksonville hosted its first “Dress Down Day,” which included a raffle for all students who participated.
Our school also launched its first student club. With the assistance of Dr. Williams, Testing Coordinator Constance Clearvaux, and ESE/PE Teacher Ms. Treat students were able to establish and launch a book club. The exciting thing about the book club is that the idea was presented to Dr. Williams by one student, Nysheki Johnson.
Nysheki Johnson wrote an impressive proposal for the implantation of the MYcroSchool Jacksonville Book Club. Nysheki will be the club’s president and Kayla Prince, who helped with the entire recruiting process for the book club, will be the vice president. These students were very organized and worked for two weeks to set up the recruiting event and planning for how the club will function. The entire staff at MYcroSchool Jacksonville is proud of these two students and of the students who took the initiative to join!Kelly Treat is the ESE / P.E. Teacher at MYcroSchool Jacksonville.
