Firefighters collect for Boot Drive
FF/EMT Ben Velasco takes his turn in the September heat, collecting for the Muscular Dys-
trophy Association's annual fundraiser. Immokalee firefighters join others from across the
country in support of the cause. Their total for 2010 was $8,989, thanks to the firefighters'
efforts and the generous folks who helped fill up those boots.

Local bank hosts open house

Clinic to


sterilize


625 cats
Collier Spay Neuter Clinic,
(CSNC) a non-profit organization,
has been awarded a $25,000 grant
funded through sales of the Official
Florida Animal Friend Spay and
Neuter License Plates. This grant
will allow CSNC to provide approx-
imately 625 cat sterilization surger-
ies through a method known as
targeted trap, neuter, and return
and is the largest amount of fund-
ing to ever be awarded in our com-
munity to address the free roaming
cat crisis.
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is
a full management plan in which
stray and feral cats already living
outdoors in cities, towns, and rural
areas are humanely trapped, evalu-
ated, vaccinated, and sterilized by
veterinarians. Kittens and tame
cats are adopted into good homes
and healthy adult cats too wild to
be adopted are returned to their
familiar habitat under the lifelong
care of volunteers.
CSNC will partner with free
roaming cat caregivers, rescue
groups, and volunteers attempting
the new, targeted TNR approach.
Free roaming cats tend to live in
groups also known as colonies.
Targeted TNR is a method of trap-
ping and neutering an entire col-
ony before moving on to the next
surrounding colonies in a specific
geographic area. Newcomer cats
entering completed colonies are
immediately trapped, neutered,
and vaccinated.

Students First


New policies and rules new
year
By Joe Landon
Collier County District Schools
We're focusing today on a little bit of
this and a little bit of that -several topics
of interest.
*Parents of high school students, I'm
sure you've heard several times by now
that there's a new attendance policy in
place. Our schools have done a great job
getting the word out. But, in case you've
missed all of the communication criss-
crossing the district, here's the bottom line.
There are new attendance requirements to
earn credit. They are: (1) attain a passing
average for the semester; (2) accumulate
no more than NINE days absent for semes-
ter (note: no distinction between excused,
validated, and unexcused when calculat-
ing absences for earning credit); and (3) if
you choose to appeal, you must file your
appeal within ten days of the date you
receive notification of loss of credit. Read
the entire policy which you can easily find
under Looking For? on the home page of
the school district Web site at www.collier-
schools.com.
*For high school students, and morns
and dads, with an eye on the future, the
district's annual College Night program will
be taking place from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Thurs-
day, Sept. 23, in the gym at Golden Gate
High School (2925 Titan Way, just off Col-
lier Boulevard) in Golden Gate. As many as


ict Sch 100 colleges and
.1i^Ct Scho0/ universities will
t / 1 be represented.
Come armed with
questions about
entrance require-
ments, courses of
study, cost, finan-
/'c, cial aid, and cam-
Collier COg pus life.
We're wrap-
ping up a Florida School Breakfast Week
celebration. Main message here is that our
school district's Nutrition Services Program
continues to serve breakfast at no charge
-absolutely FREE -to all of our students.
On average, we serve 11,000 free break-
fasts each school day. Over the course of
the school year, we'll be serving more than
2,000,000 free breakfasts to students. In
some cases, if it wasn't for the free school
breakfast, some students might begin the
school day hungry. Research tells us that
kids who eat breakfast actually have an
increased attention span. And what are
our students eating for breakfast? Those
popular English muffin egg sandwiches
(the kind that Ronald makes), French toast
sticks (like the King makes), apple or cin-
namon breakfast squares, mini pancakes,
whole grain Pop Tarts, and whole grain
and reduced-sugar cereal. Plus, students
are offered milk and 100 percent fruit juice
each and every morning. Great way to start
each day!


Edison State Collier Campus to host

dual enrollment information night


In the past, students earned their high
school diploma after four years, with many
then attending college. Now, these students
have the option to be enrolled in both high
school and college (Dual Enrollment) with
the potential to simultaneously earn their
high school diploma and an Associate's de-
gree. For Edison State College Collier Cam-
pus, the number of high school students
taking advantage of this opportunity has
increased over 50 percent in the past four
years.
"Our dual enrollment program has in-
creased in popularity over the years because
area high school students can earn college
credit without paying for tuition, fees or
books. With an increased global market, stu-
dents are finding that having a college edu-
cation is more important than ever," said Dr.
Jeffrey Allbritten, Collier Campus President.
"These students can earn enough college
credits to earn an Associate's degree while
also getting their high school diploma."
In 2006, the Collier Campus had 123 high
school students participating in the Dual En-
rollment program. That number increased
to 189 for 2010, a nearly 54 percent increase,
with Lely High having largest number of stu-
dents participating in the program for 2010.
Additional Collier County high schools par-
ticipating in Dual Enrollment are: Barron,
Naples, Palmetto Ridge, Immokalee, Golden


Gate, Gulf Coast, Lorenzo Walker, Ever-
glades City and St. John Neumann. Addition-
ally, there are a number of home-schooled
students that participate in the program.
"We have worked diligently with the Col-
lier County School District to let parents and
students know about our Dual Enrollment
program," said Dr. Christine Davis, Associate
Dean. "The increase in program participants
provides evidence that this partnership is
working."
Edison State College Collier Campus is
hosting a Dual Enrollment Parent Informa-
tion Night from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Tuesday,
Sept. 14 in the Building B, Room 101 (Audi-
torium). No pre-registration is required. The
session is open to interested students and
their parents. Throughout Edison State Col-
lege, there are 1,935 students participating in
the Dual Enrollment program in 2010, a 100
percent increase from 961 in 2006. Edison
State College has established two collegiate
high schools, with the newest one opening
on the Lee County campus in August.
The Edison State College Collier Campus,
7007 Lely Cultural Parkway, is located off
Collier Boulevard, three miles north of Ta-
miami Trail East.


TV show for parents focuses


on high school changes


Parents of a current high school fresh-
man, and parents of students in sixth, sev-
enth, and eighth grade, are invited to learn
about the changes taking place at the high
school level as a result of passage of Senate
Bill 4 earlier this year. A special edition of
the Parent Connection television program
is focused entirely on the impact of Senate
Bill 4. School District of Collier County Chief
Instructional Officer Martha Hayes address-
es everything from the new requirements
for Algebra I and Geometry, end-of-course
exams, to the eventual phasing out of FCAT
at the high school level for everything but
reading. The Algebra I changes apply to
any high school student taking the course
including those in grades 10 through 12.
The Parent Connection TV show is post-
ed as a "Webcast" on the school district's
Web site (www.collierschools.com). Once
on the home page click on the TV screen
in the top right-hand corner of the page la-


beled as "TV Show for sixth through ninth
Grade Parents" to view the half-hour show.
Parent Connection will air on The Educa-
tion Channel, Comcast cable 99, each eve-
ning at 6:30 p.m. Monday through Satur-
day evenings beginning Monday, Sept. 13,
through Saturday, Sept. 25.
Important written information for par-
ents of any high school student is posted on
the school district Web site as well. There is
a link to "Graduation Requirement Chang-
es" in the Looking For? area of the home
page (at www.collierschools.com). These
documents -posted in May of this year
deal with the new high school graduation
requirements, assessment requirements,
and end-of-course exams. The documents
also advise parents of all high school stu-
dents and middle school students taking
high school courses that grades are now
awarded on a semester basis.

Eden Park students reap benefits of hard work in FCAT


On Thursday, Sept. 9, students at Eden
Park Elementary attended an assembly that
included drawings for some fantastic prizes.
Mr. Krause, math coach at Eden Park, spear-
headed a plan to provide incentives to re-
ward students for their hard work preparing
for the state mandated FCAT.
The most coveted prizes awarded includ-
ed, two personal computers, a Nintendo DSI,
and a Wii game console. Students had the
opportunity to win the prizes based on their
FCAT scores from last year's test. Students
were given a ticket in reading and/or math
based on their gain scores from last year. If
a student showed at least a year's growth in
math and/or reading they received a prize
ticket and with that ticket they were given
the chance to win a prize of their choice.
Excitement was in the air as students sat
in the assembly in anticipation of the draw-
ing of names. When the names were drawn,
the winners were: Francisco Brito, winner of
the Nintendo DSI, Giovanny Maceus walked
away with the Wii, and Marcy Cano and
Areli Gomez each won brand new personal
computers.
Local businesses donated the prizes and
Eden Park would like to thank McDonalds,


Horace Mann Insurance, and Bill Buhler for
their donations and commitment in helping
the students at Eden Park Elementary.
If anyone is interested in getting involved
this year and helping reward students at
Eden Park Elementary for their hard work,
they can contact Mr. Krause at Eden Park El-
ementary at 239-377-7320.

Golden Eagles deal crusher


to Immokalee Indians 49-6

By Moises Diaz
Special to the Immokalee Bulletin
From the start of the game the Eagles
were determined to dominate. Scoring
twice before the Indian offense took a snap.
The Eagles defense forced six fumbles and
one interception. The only Indian touch-
down came during the fourth quarter with
5:23 to play on a running clock. Sophomore
QB Joslin Alberique led the team down to
the Naples six yard line. On third and goal,
Alberique connected with sophomore wide
receiver Jummy Victorin on a six yard recep-
tion for a touchdown. Victorin ended the
night with two catches for 36 yards and one
touchdown.
Immokalee only started six seniors on
both sides of the ball, all others, underclass-
men who have stepped up and accepted
