"Committed to Faithfully Serving the Readers of Clewiston and Hendry County"


Vol. 85, Number 53 50 cents


Why is Clewiston High an 'F' school?


thi issue:


This week's question: "Why is Clewiston
High School an "F" school? Do you see this
as a total failure?"
Answering the question is Jodi Bell, the
district's director in charge of federal pro-
grams. Ms. Bell works closely with Rick Mur-
phy, superintendent, and C. Gordon Swag-
gerty, assistant superintendent, in pursuing
worthwhile programs to be implemented
district-wide.
"I felt very defensive whenever I heard
anyone mention the fact that Clewiston High
School was an 'F' school. The whole idea of
a grade of an F symbolizes failure, whether it
is in a class that is taken, or the school grade
that is issued from the Department of Educa-
tion. All anyone would have to do is visit CHS
and you would see that the school does not
have 'F' students, nor do they have 'F' teach-
ers and administrators. What you would see


is a school filled with students, teachers, and
administrators who are 'working their butts
off' as Mr. Swaggerty has said, to extinguish
the idea that they are an 'F' school.
When the Florida Department of Educa-
tion first became involved, in September of
2009, it became apparent that things were
not going to be the same at CHS. There
needed to be some changes because if we
continued to do what had been done with-
out any changes in curriculum and instruc-
tion, we were in danger of getting the same
results. Shortly after the first instructional
review by the state in September, there
were several things that they wanted to see
changed at CHS. Many of these were not
easy changes to make, and to compound
the difficulty, the state wanted them made
after the school year had already begun.

Brandon Pena golfs.
Sometimes, he golfs with his dad,
Adolfo.


"My dad's always
been reallyinto golf, so I
just kind of always been
around it," he says.
In a place where
football is king, the
two have developed

forged in the niceties of
the world's most gentle-
manly pursuit.
SWhen he was grow-
ing up, Brandon was
the epitome of the
game of golf-- hugely
talented, with little or
no competition to chal-

His father thinks Adolfo. Now, Brandon
is going up against play-
ers "equally talented or
better" in college.
What it's done is improve his game fur-
ther, but has also provided for a few disap-
pointments along the way.
At the end of tournaments, Brandon takes
a step back to review. There is the score, and
the final result, but there are also the swings,
or the approaches, the shots and the missed
opportunities -- a whole behind-the-scenes
look at the outcome.


And Brandon is the typical own worst
critic, picking apart the things he feels he
could have done better, especially if his po-
sition doesn't end up as high on the list as
he'd wanted it to be.
He says his father is the same way.
Adolfo, in the unique position of coach
and father, said he falls back more frequent-
ly to his role as father after a tournament,
"perhaps to a fault," he jokes.
Recently, Brandon broke the Clewiston
Golf Course record. His father manages the
course, and reported that Brandon posted a
score of 62. "Strangely enough, the follow-
ing day, he shot it again," said Adolfo.
The former record had been 63, and that
lasted nearly three decades.
"He probably lost it since then," Adolfo
playfully adds.
Brandon isn't too far behind with his own
view.

the school's operating budget, and the
district's leadership has been forced to
downsize through attrition and other
means. In its campaign to work closely

Hit the Sports Wire on the Clewiston Sports Network


Renee Hawley
Sports Marketing Manager
Clewiston Sports Network (CSN), the Clewis-
ton News' free Web site devoted to youth, rec-
reational and leisure sports, is now featuring a
convenient online Sports Wire tool in which
leagues, organizations, schools and individuals
can submit their news.
As with the results and photographs that are
posted on CSN, the material on the Sports Wire
will be sent to the Clewiston News Sports De-
partment for possible inclusion in the Thursday
print edition.
If you are a reader of the Clewiston News,
you are familiar with the items that will com-
prise the online Sports Wire. The link will be a

briefs information announcing the formation
of teams, tryouts, meetings, registration dates,


reminders, event, or anything you want people
to know about.
"Newsworthy Events" are usually photo-
graphs highlighting the achievements of a
team, school or an athlete. Really, though, a
Newsworthy Event can be anything you want it
to be everything from a stair-climbing contest
to a write-up on a free-throw contest to a photo
of lifelong friends who competed against each
other in a varsity soccer match. It's our way of
saying 'Yes' all the time.
Now, the Sports Department will be collect-
ing that type of information through CSN. The
value of the Sports Wire is longevity. A local
brief will be visible on the CSN site for 21 days,
in addition to appearing in the newspaper at
least once. A Newsworthy Event will appear on
CSN for the remainder of the current sports sea-
son as well as, space permitting, taking its spot


in the print product.

Page, click on Clewiston and then "Sports."
From there, select "Clewiston Sports Network".
When the site loads click on the "Sports Wire"
tab at the top of the page and access 'Add a

quired information and click "Submit" when
finished. Registration is required.

Stuff! Ownership and our
illusions about it.
The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
The TV show "Operation Repo" recounts
the trials and tribulations of those who re-
possess vehicles when payments are in ar-
rears. Logically, you'd expect that people
who do not pay for their cars would real-
ize they broke their purchase contract and
would relinquish the car. That's never the
case! The confrontations are always "It's my
car!" or "There must be some mistake!" and
the battles are underway.
They range from physical confrontations,
certainly a verbal confrontation, threats,
and assaults involving all kinds of people
that have nothing to do with the transaction
between the buyer or seller and a host of
complications. The program has a wide au-
dience appeal because we understand our
emotional attachments to the "things" in our
lives that we think we possess.
People live with the illusions that they
"possess" things and other people. I've
heard parents talk about "my children..."
and then go on to tell about how they were
directing a life that had a sense of direction
all of its own.
One former seminary dean talked about
his family and said "I like to think I'm captain
of my ship, but all I've done is to create little
ships, each with their own captains." When
it comes to "stuff" it is more than likely that
we don't possess it, it possesses us!
The illusion of ownership comes out
when something we think we own is taken
away; a house, a car, a loved one, material
possessions, treasures of all kinds, you name
it. People get upset, understandably so, but
I wonder if the things that upset them were
really theirs in the first place.
God sends children into our lives, gives
us things to use, and provides for us and
for many of us, well beyond our needs. One
theologian (Martin Buber) said "People love
things and use people when they should be
loving people and using things."
We have a hard time of letting go and our
possessiveness comes with a cost. Job put
it this way: "We came in with nothing, we
leave with nothing; the Lord gave and the
Lord has taken away (Job 1:21)."
What happens in the meantime is a gift,
an investment in our lives, an opportunity
to do something with what is shared with
us. It is from that perspective that happiness
comes; you can't take from me what I don't
have.
When I think I have, I am vulnerable to
all sorts of hurts and disappointments; when
I keep things in perspective, I do not let my-
self be deceived. What then do we really
have? Probably less than we think.
Our greatest "possessions" would be
things that can't be taken away; gifts of
the spirit, the person God has made us, the
persons sent into our lives to enrich us and
be with us for a short while, the faith-hope-
love of which we are capable and those acts
where we are capable of enriching others or
our world. The rest? It's all on loan, that's
all.


Parental Responsibility
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Children! What a tremendous blessing!
Children give parents no end of joy. But
along with the joy comes sobering respon-
sibilities. As parents we owe certain obli-
gations to our children. We can't let them
down. We can't let God down. God expects
each and every parent to do his or her part
in raising children.
The very first responsibility we have as
parents is to teach our children of God. Ev-
ery other responsibility fall before this one.
When one parent is a Christian and the oth-
er is not, the task becomes greater. But this
is no excuse for not teaching children. We
have a good example of this situation: the
parents of Timothy.
Timothy's mother was a Christian but his
father wasn't. Years later when Paul wrote to
Timothy he told Timothy to abide in those
things he was taught which he was "just a
babe." That's the key! As parents we need
to know that it is never too early to take our
children to worship services.
As parents we also need to know that
instilling in our children faith in God and in
the Bible, is the best thing we can ever do
for them. That early teaching will stay with
them the rest of their lives.
Impressions are made while they are
young. In Judges 2:10-11, we read of a gen-
eration that didn't know God. They did many
things which were evil in the sight of God.
They were idol-worshippers. But the reason
why they were ignorant of God was simply
because they weren't taught.
Their parents before them didn't take the
time to tell them all the wonderful works
and miracles God had done. We know God
was displeased with that generation but
what about the parents before them who
didn't teach them?
Another responsibility we owe our chil-
dren is discipline. Consistent and construc-
tive discipline never hurt a child. They need
and long for loving guidance.
Parents are to offer that guidance. Paul
tells us in Ephesians 6:4 "Ye Fathers, ...nur-
ture them in the chastening and admoni-
tion of the Lord." Chastening has to do with
spanking, or whatever steps are necessary
to maintain control. Admonishment has the
idea of training by word. The older the child
grows if the parents have done their job,
spankings will be fewer and admonishing
will be the main discipline.
In I Samuel 3, we see God talking to
Samuel in a vision. God told Samuel that he
would judge Eli's house. God was very dis-
pleased with Eli, and verse 13 tells us why:
Eli has no control over his sons. He practiced
very little, if any discipline. As a result they
were sinful men who knew not God (I Sam.
2:12). Eli didn't even admonish them.
Parents are you doing your job? Are you
teaching your children of God? Are you dis-
cipling your children. If America is ever to
turn back to God it will start in the home.
Proverbs 13:34 says "He that spareth the rod
hateth his son; But he that loveth him chas-
teneth him betimes."

The Gift of Laughter
Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
It's the middle of summer. It's vacation
time. So put your feet up and smile awhile.


Let's give thanks to God for his gift of laugh-
ter; it's a wonderful blessing and a great tool
of encouragement! Remember, "The joy of
the Lord is your strength" (Nehemiah 8:10).
The Bible first mentions laughter in Gen-
esis 17:17 and 18:12. Unfortunately, Abra-
ham and Sarah used the gift of laughter in
a negative way.
They laughed at God and at his promise
to give them a son! Abraham fell face down
in laughter at this news; he was 99 years old
at the time! His wife Sarah was 90! She also
laughed when she heard the news, but when
the Lord confronted her, she denied it.
Despite their snickering, Sarah bore Abra-
ham's son nine months later. They named
him "Isaac"; the name means "laughter."
Sarah commented, "God has brought me
laughter, and everyone who hears about this
will laugh with me" (Genesis 21:6).
While we can abuse the gift of laughter,
God can also use our joy and even our laugh-
ter as a witnessing tool, pointing people to
His blessings and power.
Psalm 126:2 speaks of the laughter and
songs of joy that filled the air as God's peo-
ple returned to their homeland after years
in exile. And as the nations around them
witnessed the joy of God's people, they pro-
claimed, "The LORD has done great things
for them."
Laughter comes in all styles and shapes:
from the true belly laugh, to mere chuckles,
to giggles and cackles, to nervous laughter,
to the polite, social laugh, to an occasional
snort. And, I might add, even a silent smile
or quiet groan at a good pun!
While you may not laugh right out loud
at the following groaners, I hope that at least
one or two of them will bring a smile to your
face. And I hope you will share that joy with
others.
As humorist Josh Billings once said,
"Laughter is the sensation of feeling good all
over and showing it principally in one place."
Now for a few groaners: Thieves who steal
corn from a garden could be charged with
stalking; I wondered why the baseball was
getting bigger.
Then it hit me; If you take a laptop com-
puter for a run, you could jog your memory;
In a democracy, it's your vote that counts; in
feudalism, it's your Count that votes; With
her marriage, she got a new name and a
dress; Show me a piano falling down a
mineshaft and I'll show you A-flat miner, A
grenade fell onto a kitchen floor in France,
resulting in Linoleum Blown Apart; You are
stuck with your debt if you can't budge it. A
hard-boiled egg is hard to beat.
Let's serve the Lord and his people by
spreading joy, fun, and laughter every day!

Healthy Employees are happy employees


New Fitness Program at
HRMC
Hendry Regional Medical Center's well-
ness program is committed to employee
health. Last year, employees participated in
"Path to Wellness," an eight-week program
that offered incentives for hospital staff to
lose weight, stop smoking, eat more nutri-
tiously and lead healthier lives.
In its quest to continue focusing on em-
ployee health, and through another grant pro-
vided by the Lake Okeechobee Rural Health
Network, the hospital is now offering its em-
ployees a full 16 weeks of work-out classes.
Vonnie McDaniel, a local certified person-
al trainer, will instruct participants with the
use of resistant stretch bands, leg-bands and
medicine balls for cardiovascular and body
sculpturing workouts. The exercise program
will be modified to accommodate levels of


endurance from those who are beginners to
the more advanced. Class curriculums will
be printed and provided to the group so that
they can follow the same work-out regime at
home.
The first weigh-in will be held on July 9th
at Hendry Regional Corporate Health Ser-
vices, with follow-up weigh-ins occurring
every Friday. The first class will take place
on Monday, July 12th. (Classes will continue
every Monday and Wednesday through the
16-week period and will last for 45 minutes.)
Sessions are scheduled from 5:30 p.m. to
6:15 p.m. and at 6:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. on
both days.
Hendry Regional's wellness program also
provides the public with free diabetes educa-
tion classes and tobacco cessation classes.
For more information on health and wellness,
call Tony Pavey-McDaniel at 863-983-1123.

Tons of fun, free year-round activities are
available on approximately 375,000 acres
managed by the South Florida Water Man-
agement District (SFWMD) across 16 coun-
ties, from Orlando to the Keys. These public
treasures featured in the new SFWMD
interactive recreation guide provide an
escape from the daily grind.
"I am constantly amazed by the variety
of outdoor activities right in our own back-
yards," said SFWMD Executive Director
Carol Ann Wehle. "Summer is a perfect time
to come out and enjoy Florida's unique na-
ture and wildlife while spending time with
friends and family."
The District is committed to increasing
recreational access to public lands, while
continuing to manage them effectively to
meet its environmental restoration, water
supply, water quality and flood control mis-
sions. Such access is also made possible by
partnerships with local, state and federal
agencies, along with community organiza-
tions.
The SFWMD recently completed con-
struction on three day-use shelters along the
Kissimmee River and Lake Kissimmee to
provide a rest stop and destination for boat-

Florida KidCare offers access to healthcare benefits


Get children's health
insurance for less than a
trip to the movies
There's some good news for Florida par-
ents looking for an affordable opportunity to
keep their kids healthy.
Florida KidCare is offering health insur-
ance benefits to children under the age of 19
for less than a trip to the movies. Children
have access to preventive care such as regu-
lar doctor's visits, immunizations, dental and
vision checkups.
In addition, families are protected against
catastrophic financial loss in the event of a
serious medical issue.
The majority of families enrolled pay
nothing at all; others may pay premiums that
range from $15 to $159 per month. Children
receive coverage under the program's four
components: MediKids, Children's Medical
Services Network, Healthy Kids and Chil-
dren's Medicaid.
To date, approximately 1.6 million chil-
dren are enrolled and the program is open
to accept thousands more. In the last two
months alone, 50,000 previously uninsured
children began receiving preventive care
such as regular doctor visits, immunizations,
dental check-ups and prescriptions through
Florida KidCare.
It's now even easier for families to access
Florida KidCare benefits through a more
streamlined enrollment process. An increase
in funding will also expand the program to
cover more children, helping to make sure
no child in Florida goes without health insur-


ance.
To continue toward this goal, the Gover-
nor's Office and six state agencies are work-
ing with dozens of community and business
partners to implement a statewide push to
reach families with uninsured children.
Families can apply for Florida KidCare on-
line at www.floridakidcare.org or by calling
1-888-540-5437 to receive an application by
mail.

SFWMD airdropped plants to improve


Everglades and its

Aquatic plants to help
remove phosphorus from
water
The South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) airlifted 22.5 tons of
plants to a constructed treatment wetland
to help improve the quality of water flow-
ing into America's Everglades.
District staff harvested three native spe-
cies of submerged aquatic plants South-
ern naiad, chara and Illinois pondweed -
from Cell 3 of Stormwater Treatment Area
2 (STA-2).
The plants were loaded into a large
cargo net and flown by helicopter to Cell
2 of STA-2, where they were released into
shallow waters. Approximately 30 flights
- each carrying between 1,400 and 1,500
pounds of plants -were scheduled.
Known as submerged aquatic vegeta-
tion because it grows beneath the surface
of the water, the airlifted plants will replace
cattails that have been growing in Cell 2.
District scientists expect the new plants to
increase phosphorus removal from water
moving through this cell.
Stormwater Treatment Areas are the
water-cleaning workhorses of Everglades
restoration, using plants to naturally re-
move phosphorus from water flowing into
the fabled River of Grass. The District oper-
ates a network of six STAs south of Lake
Okeechobee with a combined area of more


water quality
than 52,000 acres. Since 1994, the treat-
ment areas have retained more than 1,200
metric tons of total phosphorus that would
have otherwise entered the Everglades.

American Sugar to Acquire Tate & Lyle


Florida Crystals subsidiary
agrees to acquire European
cane sugar operations
Tate & Lyle is the leading cane sug-
ar producer in the European Union.
The acquisition of its refineries in Lon-
don, England, and Lisbon, Portugal,
increases ASR's total refining capacity
to six million metric tons per year. The
211 million ($318 million) acquisi-
tion includes a license for use of the
distinguished Tate & Lyle brand in
connection with the sale of sugar.
"The acquisition of Tate & Lyle's Eu-
ropean sugar operations is consistent
with our strategic vision for expansion
in the sugar refining sector," said Luis
Fernandez, ASR Co-President.
"Tate & Lyle is steeped in 130 years
of tradition and consumer loyalty. We
recognize the importance and history
of the Tate & Lyle sugar brand and are
proud to add it to our existing brand
portfolio."
This acquisition marks the third
large-scale transaction between the
two companies. ASR purchased Tate
& Lyle North American Sugars, Inc.
(Domino Sugar) and its three refin-
eries in 2001. More recently, ASR ac-
quired Tate & Lyle Canada Ltd. (Red-
path Sugar) in 2007, which included
Canada's largest refinery.


ASR's expertise lies in the operation
of cane sugar refineries and the logis-
tics of the related supply chain as well
as the marketing of recognized retail
sugar brands.
'Sugar is a global business," said
Antonio L. Contreras, Jr., ASR Co-Pres-
ident. "This acquisition makes perfect
sense for ASR. We're sugar people
who are committed to and understand
the sugar business. The European ac-
quisition in many ways mirrors our
North American operations and will
complement our company."
Across North America, ASR owns
and operates six cane sugar refiner-
ies, located in Yonkers, New York;
Baltimore, Maryland; Chalmette, Lou-
isiana; Crockett, California; Toronto,
Canada; and Veracruz, Mexico.
The company markets its indus-
trial, consumer and specialty products
through Domino Foods, Inc., with a
brand portfolio of Domino, C&H,
Florida Crystals and Redpath.
ASR is owned by Florida Crystals
Corporation, a Fanjul Corp. company,
of West Palm Beach, Florida, led by
Alfonso Fanjul, Jr., Chairman & CEO,
and J. Pepe Fanjul, Vice Chairman,
President & COO, and Sugar Cane
Growers Cooperative of Belle Glade,
Florida led by George H. Wedgworth,
Chairman of the Board and CEO.

Public Day to be hosted at Fort Center, an archeological site on Fisheating Creek


Archeological site listed in the
National Register of Historical
Places

The Florida Public Archaeology
Network (FPAN) Southwest Region-
al Center, in conjunction with the
Southwest Florida Archaeological
Society and the Clewiston Museum,
will host a Public Day at Fort Center
on Friday, July 16, from 10 a.m.-3
p.m. Fort Center, an important Belle
Glade archaeological site on Fisheat-
ing Creek near Lake Okeechobee in
Glades County, was first excavated in
the late 1960s, and written about in
a well-known volume by William H.
Sears in 1982.
Dr. Victor Thompson of Ohio State
University, who is conducting an un-
dergraduate field school at Fort Cen-
ter, will lead tours for the public along
with project team members. Thomp-
son's excavations mark the first time
in decades that the site has been sub-
ject to excavation.
In addition to site tours, FPAN will
have archaeological information
and activities available. The Clewis-
ton Museum located off of SR-80 in
downtown Clewiston, will also be
open for visitors as part of our Fort
Center Public Day. No reservations
needed.


The Fort Center site is managed
by Florida's Fish and Wildlife Com-
mission and is located off of SR-78
north of Moore Haven at the Fisheat-
ing Creek parking access. Please note
that the site is located in awooded and
undeveloped natural area, so proper
attire (long pants, sturdy shoes), sun
and rain protection, and a water sup-
ply are strongly recommended during
your visit. Restroom facilities, a park-
ing area, and picnic shelters can be
found at the entrance.
The Florida Public Archaeology
Network is a statewide program dedi-
cated to protecting and preserving
the state's fragile cultural resources
and involving the public in the study
of our past. The Town of Fort Myers
Beach Mound House hosts the South-
west Regional FPAN Center, which
serves Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hen-
dry, and Lee Counties.

our kids active.

Clewiston and the case of


the vanishing white goods


Photo/City of Clewiston
Sean Scheffler, the city of Clewiston's public works director, was not in the least
surprised to find that a campaign to encourage residents to place their old white
goods on the side of the road yielded not a single washer or dryer for the city
to pick up.


A public works director's
work ends pleasantly

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
Steve McKown, having helped to orga-
nize an amnesty trash pick up day, was anx-
ious to see as many washers and dryers and
refrigerators and other "white goods" lining
the streets on the scheduled pick up day as
he had hoped to see.
The city had offered its residents to pick
up many tons of the trash so homeown-
ers could finally clear out their backyards
and lawns, and he thought that the pick up
would have the effect of inspiring the resi-
dents to keep their property clean.
But when the day came, no white goods
were picked up. Not a single washer. Not a
wayward dryer. The four corners of the city,
north, south, east and west, were empty.
Where did all the washers and dryers go?
Had they had poor participation?
No, that wasn't the case. There were re-
ports earlier that week of the items set on
the side of the roads, ready for pick up, but
when city trucks showed up to do the heavy
lifting, they were all gone.
His public works director, Sean Scheffler,
was not surprised.
"I did not expect to pick up any white
goods," he said in a telephone interview
this week, without a hint of hesitation in his
voice. "I expected white goods or metal to
be picked up by the metal scavengers long
before we got there."
According to Mr. Scheffler, the scavengers
ride "in pick up trucks and trailers" around
town doing just that, recovering discarded
metals to transport to a metal recycle opera-


tion for a quick profit.
At one time the price of scrap metal went
for a high rate. What this created, especially
in some of the areas hardest hit by the re-
cent recession, were individuals, sometimes
more, searching for the goods as their pri-
mary source of income, or as supplemental
income.
"That's not the case anymore," said Mr.
Scheffler. "The price of metal is down, but
with the economy the way it is, people are
doing whatever they possibly can to make
end's meet."
He considers that scrapped metals are
picked up as quickly as two hours after
they've been set out for garbage pick up by
the local scavengers. Depending on what
they haul back, the collectors can earn $20
or $30 for a few hours of work -- sometimes
less or more.
"Right now people are in great need," he
said. "That extra cash in hand goes a long
way."
It's almost like an ecosystem built around
economics -- the old adage, one person's
waste.
And despite being beat to the punch -- a
good thing, mind you -- the city still collected
a total of 51 tons in a single eight-hour pe-
riod. Because the city charges for trash pick
ups which are larger than the size of a pick
up bed, the amnesty was a perfect way to
get residents to collect their trash.
Part of the credit for the clean up, though,
must be given to the scavengers, who did
not let Mr. Scheffler down.
"I worked this job long enough to know
the ebb and the flow of what's gonna come
and go," said Mr. Scheffler. "If we picked up
any white goods, it wasn't going to be very
much. I was laying my bets that we weren't
picking any up."

Question
Continued From Page 1
One example of this was when Mrs. Lee
and her staff had to change the schedules of
over 50 percent of the student body to ac-
commodate an additional reading period for
those students who had not passed the FCAT,
or who had previously scored a Level 1 or 2
on the FCAT. If you have ever been involved
in high school scheduling, this was no easy
feat. Even students who scored higher than
the 1 or 2 on FCAT were subject to having
schedule changes, because once you start
making changes to a master schedule, it has
a domino effect.
Mrs. Lee and her staff recovered from
their initial shock of the directive, took a
deep breath, and worked countless hours,
often not leaving the campus until well into
the evening to get this done quickly and ef-
ficiently as possible. When it was rolled out
to the students, it was met with much frus-
tration and opposition from many, as some
had to replace an elective class with the
mandatory reading class. An elective class
is usually one that the student has chosen,
and wants to be in, as opposed to a required
class which usually is not on the students'
list of favorites. Teachers had to deal with
unhappy students, and a new class schedule
in the middle of the year.
Also, teachers had to change the way
they planned for their classes, and had to
spend many hours meeting with their team
members and reading and math coaches to


plan strategies that would meet the needs
of their students. This was a different meth-
odology of planning, as most high school
teachers anywhere are accustomed to plan-
ning for their instruction by themselves. I
also have the highest respect for how Mrs.
Lee handled many of these challenges in her
first year as principal. She often found her-
self in the middle of demands from the state
and multiple reasons at the school level as
to why the state mandates could not be met.
She remained very focused and would only
let herself see "forward" as the direction
that CHS needed to move with these state
requirements.
So ... you asked why don't I see CHS as
a failure?
I think the question should read.. 'Why
WAS CHS an F school?' as all preliminary
data from the 2009-2010 FCAT indicates that
they have made some nice gains in read-
ing, math, and science, and we are feeling
confident that we will not see that 'F' grade
again.
I see a school that took a task they were
assigned this year, and for the most part, as
well as they could with the resources they
had, stepped up to the plate. I see a school
that made adjustments throughout the
school year that were often difficult, such
as the schedule changes, and would not let
anything stand in their way of getting it done.
I see students who want to do well, want to
graduate from high school with a good edu-
cation, and want to be active participants in
their education. I see teachers and adminis-
trators who come to school before the sun

comes up, and who do not leave until the
sun is going down. I see teacher and admin-
istrator cars in the parking lot on most week-
ends. I see a group of teachers and admin-
istrators who are spending a good portion
of their summer planning for instruction for
the 10-11 school year, and who are incred-
ibly motivated by this past year's successes
to build upon any successful practices that

have been put into place. I see positive rela-
tionships building between students, teach-
ers, and administrators.
I also see a school as a whole that is proud
to be the flagship of their community, and
that is going to do everything in their power
to extinguish that 'F' grade for good."
