The Flood Zone Classi cation map shows how FEMA plans on designating what falls into a ood zone." Continuing, he told the club members that the Collier County map shows how much of the Immokalee area comes under the new FEMA guidelines as to what now becomes ' ood zone' property. "As you can see, the greater part of our community is considered to be below FEMAs new guideline, and means more of our citizens will now be required to purchase ood insurance. We need to speak out in a very loud voice. To help us in this, each of us needs to contact our insurance agent and ask them for a declaration of status for our properties. Don't wait for your mortgage holder to do this! It will cost you about six or seven times the actual cost if, in fact, you even need the extra coverage. Hopefully, many of you will be in the yellow' areas," he said. "And, if you haven't already signed the petitions being circulated in the community, please see Fred Thomas as soon as possible," stated Mr. Nance.

And in Immokalee, one of those little boy’s dreams started to come true last week. Well, he’s actually not so little anymore. He’s actually a senior at Immokalee High School and a defensive back for the school’s football team. Mackensie Alexander is his name and he’s actually now the rst in Immokalee High’s history to be selected to the U.S. Army AllAmerican Bowl – the premier high school football game in the country. A game that has helped launch the careers of football pros such as Tim Tebow, Mark Sanchez, Andrew Luck, and so many other college and NFL stars. The U.S. Army All-American Bowl, set to be played on January 5, 2013, in San Antonio, Texas, features the nation’s nest high school football players in an east versus west gridiron showdown. Now, let’s bring in some perspective. Out of some one million nominees in the nation, Mackensie is one of the 90 – that’s ninety in the entire country – selected to take the eld in January. And he’ll do this proudly wearing the U.S. Army colors of black and gold. Immokalee High held a special pep rally last Friday in the school’s courtyard to welcome the 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Tour for the of cial announcement. The Tour is made up of ve teams of Bowl and U.S. Army representatives travelling across the country from late September to mid-December announcing all 90 players and 125 marching band musicians to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Mackensie was surrounded by his teammates, his family and friends, and Immokalee High School staff, as he reached a goal he made back when he was a sophomore – to become a U.S. Army All-American. His goal was met and his dream began to come true as he was presented with his #13 U.S. Army All-American Bowl jersey. In Mackensie’s words, “I’m really excited today – really, really happy. Today is not about me, it’s about you guys, it’s about Immokalee, it’s about the community.” And there truly is a community of support cheering him on as he prepares to make his national football debut. Congratulations, Mackensie! We will all make sure to tune in to the 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl – televised live on NBC-2 straight from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, on Saturday, January 5, 2013. Keep an eye out for that #13 jersey – it’ll be one of our very own. Students First Special to the Immokalee Bulletin/ CCDSIHS Indians Football runningback, Mackensie Alexander will be in great comepany as he was chosen to become Immokalee’s rst to go to the U.S. Army AllAmerican Bowl game.

By Michael Lancellot, Will Staros, J oanne Sewell, Highlands Elementary EducatorsSpecial to the Immokalee Bulletin Highlands Elementary hosted a reciprocal teaching professional development opportunity with literacy coach and author Lori Oczkus. Highlands and Village Oaks Elementary schools along with Collier County reading coaches and district personnel gathered at Highlands on Wednesday, Aug. 15, to learn more about reciprocal teaching. Many teachers previously read Oczkus’ text Reciprocal Teaching at Work, Powerful Strategies for Improving Reading Comprehension through a book study organized by Highlands Elementary reading coach Mary Charles. Lori Oczkus, author and literacy coach facilitated the professional development opportunity. I suppose one of the many reasons families relocate to Southwest Florida is a passion for the game of golf. After our sessions with Lori I shared with mine, “It was like the time you met Arnold Palmer and shook his hand. You just don’t want to wash it for a while.” According to Palinscar and Brown (1986) as cited in Oczkus (2010) when reciprocal teaching was used with a group of students for 15-20 days the students’ reading on a comprehension assessment increased from 30 percent to 70-80 percent. Reciprocal teaching is most bene cial when implemented as an intervention for struggling readers (Cooper et al., 2000) and when used w ith low-performing students in urban areas (Carter, 1997) as cited in Oczkus (2010). As a follow up training Mrs. Oczkus returned to Highlands on Tuesday, Sept. 25 and Wednesday, Sept. 26. Instructional and administrative staff members observed the expert teach students in primary and intermediate classrooms. In rst grade, we selected a non ction text about properties from our National Geographic science curriculum. She engaged students by using puppets including: Paula the Powerful Predictor, Quincy the Questioner, Clara the Clari er and Sammy the Summarizer as w e read the text. Afterwards, students role played with different types of hand bags Lori had brought in to represent purchasing at the local market. Around the guided reading table, it was extremely effective and powerful to watch Lori implement the strategies of looking up at the ceiling and grabbing a w ord and karate chopping unknown words to help our students clarify. I returned to our classroom two minutes after the opportunity and began implementing instruction with students. Highlands Elementary third grade teacher Will Staros shared, “Lori began her lesson with an introduction to the Fab Four and worked it in as a review of the four components. As each student named one of the four she created a graphic organizer on chart paper. This then led into the text, w hich was slightly dif cult, but the topic w as bears. She modeled the strategies with her costumes and taught the class the hand motions and how to draw pictures to go w ith her prediction phase. The class created a four door foldable that they recorded their responses in.” Highlands Elementary fth grade teacher Joanne Sewell stated, “High level professional development during school work hours! Yes, you heard that right. Author and teacher Lori Oczkus taught an engaging demonstration lesson to my fth graders on the Water Cycle using a powerful comprehension strategy she calls the Fab Four. Students enjoyed the cooperative and dramatic activities which helped solidify their understanding and use higher level thinking skills. Before she left, the kids made sure to get her autograph! Me too!” Highlands elementary school teachers would like to thank Literacy Coaches Mrs. Mary Charles and Mrs. Lori Oczkus, Assistant Principal Mr. Steve Grimes, and Principal Mrs. Valerie Wenrich for empowering our students with this extraordinary professional development opportunity.

In order to make it the boys needed to win both games last weekend. They traveled to Englewood and beat the home team by the score of 6-2. On Sunday they traveled to Brandon and beat the Brandon Flames 1-0 in a very tough game. The boys scored 35 goals and only allowed 6 goals during the season. We want to congratulate Coach Garza for guiding his team to a second Championship in the USA Soccer League. He has spent much of his personal time with the boys at practices and traveling on weekends. The boys are now getting ready for the start of the high school season at Immokalee High School. Much work needs to be done to match up with last year’s team that lost in the Regional Finals on penalty kicks. Note: The newest Cobra team, the U14 boys make their debut this Saturday at 12:30 p.m. at the Sports Complex here in Immokalee. Also the U12 boys will be playing at home at 11 a.m. Come and support the boys!
