The W oman’s Club was decorated for a birthday party celebration honorby Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Brothers and sisters are some of the most fundamental relationships anyone can have. Close family. They are our earliest playmates, forming bonds that last for a lifetime. The Big Brothers and Big Sisters organization has been using that bond as a model for a hundred years. Now, LaBelle residents are being invited into the family by Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Sun Coast which serves Lee, Sarasota, Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto and Manatee counties. Angela Melvin, Lee County director of Sun Coast, has been busy acquainting LaBelle groups with the organization and explaining the bene ts for both the young people and their mentors. “We’re looking to expand into LaBelle,” she said. Her job now is to build awareness of the group. Big Brothers and Big Sisters provide one-on-one mentors who in turn provide guidance for a young person struggling academically, behaviorally, who demonstrate a lack con dence or focus. A child who is not socially blending in. Mentors spend just one hour per week to help guide their Little Brother or Sister and help them make good decisions. Children eligible to be part of the BBBS are from 6-18 years old. Girls are pared with a Big Sister; boys with a Big Brother. Eligible children are referred to the program by school counselors who look for potential participants who need to develop con dence. Mentors meet with the Little Brother or Sister after school. They can pick the child up at home to do activities or just spend time together and form friendships. They can also meet with the child during their school lunch period. As a school based program, Big Brothers and Sisters coordinate with their child’s teacher. One hundred thirty kids are involved in the two-year-old Lee County program and 50 more are on a waiting list. In LaBelle, the program of ce is located at the United Way House, 133 N. Bridge Street. Mark Lapp is the rst local volunteer Big Brother for the organizing Hendry County program. As Hendry County Attorney, Mr. Lapp has a brimming schedule, but said that when you really feel the need to do something, you make the time. He decided to become a BBBS volunteer because he sees a need in the community to mentor kids Volunteer for Big Brothers Big Sisters Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantGetting back to natureSeen this van around?

It was used at the recent Big O Birding Festival to transport birders, giving them the opportunity to take in Hendry’s natural bounty rst hand and is available for non-pro ts.

Survivors ranged from newly diagnosed a few months ago, Deonna Hampton who is still undergoing treatment, to the longest survivor of 40 years, Lawrence O’Ferrell. Thank you to the organizers, decorators and everyone who brought yummy covered dishes to the celebration and those who helped clean-up. and Big Brothers Big Sisters is, as he said, the “premier organization” for mentoring. “It’s the desire to make a positive difference in the life of one child,” he said, that motivated him to sign up. The reward for helping a child improve his of her self esteem, he feels, will be seeing the bene ts to that child and to the community as a whole. Currently, there are almost a dozen volunteers who are expected to be ready to be matched with a child soon. Hendry will have its own community board of directors, providing a more direct impact. It is also important to partner with local businesses, churches and schools. A Lee County case worker will be spending part of her time covering Hendry. The LaBelle community has raised $10,000 for the program, and United Way contributed $2,000, about one-third of a case worker’s salary. Once the LaBelle program has begun serving children, BBBS may apply for grant money to grow the program. However, the money raised here, stays here. Ms. Melvin said that LaBelle is the BBBS initial target area. If results are good, BBBS may expand to Clewiston as well. She recognizes that the rst year of organizing such a group is dif cult. The program is sharing space at the United Way House, but anyone who would like to volunteer, or who needs more information about Big Brothers and Big Sisters, ma y call 239-288-4224. Ms. Melvin noted that it’s easier to serve kids if the organization can qualify for Department of Education grants. In fact, she said,if LaBelle can do that “the sky’s the limit!” Submitted photoLaBelle’s rst Big Brother volunteer Mark Lapp, is pictured with BBBS mentor manager Selena Hinsdale.

Many people tend to get stressed out when under testing pressure. I can certainly include myself in this group. Over the years I have learned to use some strategies that lessen my anxieties and help me perform much better on assessments. Here are a few tips that I have gathered to help students do their best on the test! (Note: I would like to extend a special “thank you” to Mrs. Pam Cooper from U.E.S. for taking the time to answer my testing questions when writing this article! You rock!) Most importantly, stay positive, calm and relaxed! Take a few deep breaths if you start to feel nervous. Think of a test as a puzzle. Yes, it might appear challenging at rst but with some effort and a positive attitude it can be done! Make sure you are well rested each night before testing. Do not stay up late and try to “cram” in the days before or during the testing period. It doesn’t work. A rested brain is a higher functioning brain! Remember to eat a healthy, high protein breakfast each morning before testing. Also, try to get a drink of water during test breaks. This will keep you hydrated which can help reduce fatigue and confusion. Don’t be late! Try to arrive at school a few minutes earlier than the rst bell. This will give you a little extra time to unwind and chat with your friends. Keep your eyes on your own paper. This doesn’t mean that you are trying to cheat but it could be misconstrued by the teacher and bring about unnecessary troubles and disruptions. Listen to and/or read the directions! Think about any tips the teacher has given during the year regarding how to pace your time, choose answers or look for clues. ALWAYS read the entire question carefully and don’t make assumptions about what the questions is asking. Utilize the strategy of underlining the actual question and making sure that the question is answered. Students often fall for distracters included in the question and answer choices. Although it is easier said than done, try not to worry or get frustrated when you don’t know the answer. Reread the entire question, try to solve it the best way you know how and then move on. Do not allow yourself to get stuck and waste time. Neatness counts! Any answers that need to be written should be done so carefully! If a 7 looks like a 1, this could cause a problem. If “ lling in the bubble” for a machine scored test, make sure the circle is neatly colored inside the lines. Don’t rush! If you nish early, then go back over the test. Make sure no questions were skipped and that bubbles were lled in completely if applicable. Look for careless mistakes such as putting the right answer in the wrong place! It happens! As President Jimmy Carter once stated, “You can do what you have to do, and sometimes you can do it even better than you think you can.” No worries! Apply these testing tips and know that you CAN do this! SCHOOL MATTERS: THE ABC’S OF EDUCATION FCAT – Tips During Test Time I am currently a Center Coordinator for a local Child Care Agency, and in April of last y ear, I was given the opportunity to open my home to a ve year old that I would fall in love with forever. When my husband and decided to take her, we had no idea what we w ere getting into. But we took the chance and I am glad we did. This ve year old needed more love at this time in her little life; I began by giving her rules, and I set boundaries which she struggled with. Through this process I have come to know the importance of providing, structure, including boundaries, a healthy routine and genuine love. Providing structure will help the child feel safe and secure in their environment. It will also let them know w hat is expected and their role in keeping everyone safe. Structure also includes limits and expectations; children need this in their lives if we want them to be successful in school and in life. Children need to be given limits of experiencing, talking, eating and sleeping. Life has limits and so do children; w e need to be consistent and follow through w ith what we say. When you do this, children learn to trust and believe in you and their environment. A healthy routine is just as important; children need to know what is happening next during the day. This routine builds trust and they feel safe knowing that what we say is coming will happen. It also helps children know that life is predictable and organized, and they learn to cooperate with others and how to care for themselves in the process. Lastly children know when they are not truly loved, so don’t be phony and try to pretend. Love is an action, and we show our love by telling them with our words and by our actions. Once she new I truly loved her, no matter how many bad choices she made during the day, she knew I genuinely loved her; she began to open up and share with me what she had gone through and the real healing began I have gained much more than what I have given; she will forever live in our hearts. Like she says “Mommy you’re the best mommy in the world!” Submitted by Delma Gonzalez Child care rules for home, school and life Amanda Nelson FORT MYERS, Fla. – March 28, 2014 – In an effort to improve the accuracy and ef ciency of data sharing, the Early Learning Coalition of Southwest Florida (ELC) has introduced the Enterprise Ages and Stages (ASQ) Online System to participating school readiness child care providers in the Collier, Glades, Hendry and Lee Counties. This system supports providers in meeting the State of Florida mandate requiring that all children enrolled in a School Readiness program be screened no later than 45 days from initial enrollment and within each y ear of their birth date. The Ages and Stages Questionnaire is a screening tool used to help identify children from one month to 5 years with communication, gross motor, ne motor, problem solving, and personalsocial developmental delays. According to Jill Corbett, Supervisor of A ssessment and Screening for the ELC, the result is increased accuracy in screening and scoring, faster online access to questionnaires, and supportive management tools for the entire screening program. Additionally, implementation of the online system means reduced costs for photocopying, mailing and data management. Susan Block, CEO of the ELC of SWFL stated, “We strive to improve on the delivery of services to children, families and child care providers. The new on-line system exempli es our efforts to complete the required assessment and, most importantly, react to assessments that indicate a child is in need of additional supports.” School Readiness programs unite with parents as partners to allow children to achieve social and emotional well-being. Parents can gain information about the School Readiness program by visiting www.elcofsw .org/parents. Limited School Readiness funding (child care assistance) is available by application and on an income basis. Identify children’s development delays Legion luauThe American Legion Auxiliary Unit 130 would like to thank everyone who participated with the Luau and all the volunteers who helped on March 29th. Decorations were outstanding and the side tropical Hawaiian dishes were superb. A special than k you to Carl Swope who roasted the pig and Ray and Shirley Martin who created the fruit carvings. Looking for the 2015 Luau in March 2015! Thank You

The pair presented the campground's annual check to Lisa to bene t Salvation Army programs. Every year Grandma's Grove residents give back to the community before heading back to their northern homes. This year they contributed $400, plus another $100 from the campground owners Nick and Paul Schwartz. Braxton Ford, another of LaBelle’s outstanding young men, is making his way at LaGrange College in Georgia. A sophomore at the private Christian college of some 800 students, he is studying accounting and is a standout on the LaGrange Panthers basketball team. Braxton did his part to set the team’s 1811 record for the season and was the sixth man off the bench, scoring eight points. He helped his team win the USA South Division III conference and make it to its rst national tournament. A point guard, his season’s best was 15 points against LaGrange’s rival, Maryville. Braxton said basketball was always his favorite sport, after his initial interest in soccer when he was very young. He played basketball in LaBelle’s Junior Pro league for eight years, before playing for LaBelle High School. Home for a few days recently, Braxton noted that the college experience is different, because school and activities are so time consuming. “You really learn to manage your time,” he said. A former Cowboy band member, Braxton also plays drums in the LaGrange ensemble. He said he’ll probably make a try to play professional basketball and this summer he’ll be working with a part time trainer in Georgia to improve his defensive game, A very intelligent and talented young man, Braxton knows he’s also blessed with strong support from his mother, who has been with him in everything he does and still comes to as many of his games as she can. He wants to recognize her as a role model and thank for her hard work over the years. He also wants to recognized his former LHS Coaches David Kelly and Maurice McClain, who were strong in uences on him to go to college and play ball.

Country Oaks Principal James Sealey is one of 20 elementary and middle school principals from across the nation selected by Crayola and the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) to receive a “Champion Creatively Alive Children” school grant. Crayola and NAESP together selected the schools to receive the grants, which will fund innovative programs aimed at fostering children’s critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication skills. The Champion Creatively Alive Children grants are intended to help principals explore new ways to nurture children’s creativity and inspire other principals to do the same. Each school received a $2,500 monetary grant and $1,000 worth of Crayola products. Recipients shared outcomes from their programs via NAESP’s website in order to help other principals develop promising practices related to arts education. The grant helped the school establish a newly envisioned Creative Leadership Team w hose purpose is to use art to strengthen their creative, collaborative culture. In this rst year, the team will focus on Alexander Calder’s mobiles to help teachers see integration strategies and help students design mobiles that integrate art, measurement, geometry, spatial relations, force, motion and simple machines. The “Art in Motion” program culminated in a community celebration with students’ sculptures unveiled in the County Courthouse March 25. Mr. Sealey shares a quote from the George Bernard Show; “Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable.” “Crayola believes that for students today to reach their full potential and grow into self-motivated learners, their imaginations must be nurtured. We believe these children are empowered by the educators who ignite their abilities to bring new ideas to life,” said Mike Perry, Crayola president and chief executive of cer. The Champion Creatively Alive Children grant program asks principals to explore a “what if…” learning opportunity. For example, what if arts-infused learning thrived everyday in schools? What if schools relied more on projectbased authentic assessment rather than standardized tests? What if parents and schools found ways to document and articulate the value of creative experiences? The entries were judged on innovation, collaboration, and sustainability. “Principals are key in setting the stage for learning communities that effectively integrate the arts into instruction, a practice that develops 21st century skills, improves school culture, and closes the achievement gap,” said NAESP Executive Director Gail Connelly. “We’re proud to work with Crayola and the Champion Creatively Alive Children grant program to provide schools with a unique opportunity to prepare students for future success.” EZAuto Sales1EZDRIVE.COMGuaranteed Credit Approval Chip Dorn863-675-1866 We Buy Junk Cars Top Prices Paid No Title Needed220 S.

It included American ags and artistic representations of galaxies yet to be visited. Carlos Gonzales and third grader Alfredo Salas Gonzales are shown admiring his creation. Alfredo said he liked a the colors of the ag with the earth and planets. Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantMackenzie Music, age 10, a fth grader in Ms. Dana's class said the Crayola sponsored assignment encouraged students to integrate math, science and art into one project. For hers, she rolled metal squares into cones to make bells and attached them to wires so that when it's windy it will make music like her last name, she pointed out. The math portion included having to gure out how much she would need in supplies and their cost. The weather provided the science portion and, of course, music and sculpting are the art. Below: Mackenzie, front, is pictured with, from left, COES Principal James Sealy, teacher Stella Luckey and Assistant Principal Robin Jones. Mackenzie's project is at left.
