by Maribel De ArmasNow that summer is here, I’m sure our students are keeping busy with camps, sports or jobs, maybe a bit of summer school, and hopefully a lot of just plain ‘ol fun. As I mentioned last week, we also want to urge parents help us keep learning alive during the summer. Don’t forget to visit our school district website to view our Keep Learning Alive Learning and Resource Guide. Just visit www.collierschools. com, click on the Summer Information 2014 icon in the “What’s New” area, then click on the Keep Learning Alive image to open the easy-to-use e-book full of curriculum, activities and web resources. During the summer months we also want to make sure our students continue to have access to meals. The Summer Food Program, run by Collier County Public Schools’ (CCPS) Nutrition Services Department, is up and running at locations throughout the district. So how does the program work? Well, the CCPS meal sites are located in areas of Collier County where at least 50 percent of children qualify for free or reduced-price meals during the school year. At each of these sites, all children under the age of 18 who visit will receive free, nutritionally balanced, hot breakfast and lunch meals. Again, this program is open to all children no matter what school they are enrolled in or whether they are attending summer school or not. Following are a list of sites located in Immokalee with their respective schedule and serving times. I’ve also included meal sites run by Collier County Parks and Recreation.

Masthead photo courtesy of Waddy Thompson Serving Immokalee, Ave Maria and Eastern Collier County Note: FCAT and Algebra I End-of-Course (EOC) assessment results for grades 3-10 reported here include test scores for all students. School grades do not include test scores for all students and may vary slightly from this report. In reading, based on the percentage of our students scoring at or above Level 3, grades 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 outperformed the state, this is two more grade levels than last year. Grade 4 also improved over last year’s results. This is the rst time ever that all secondary grades outperformed the state! In math, based on the percentage of our individual students scoring at or above Level 3, grades 4, 6, and 7 results improved and outperformed the state. Grade 3 test scores also improved over last year’s results. In math, Algebra I EOC, based on the percentage of our students scoring at or above Level 3, district wide scores improved by 3% for rst time test-takers and 8% for retakes. This year we are proud that almost 400 additional 7th and 8th grade students successfully completed Algebra I. Over the past two school years, approximately 800 additional middle school students have successfully completed Algebra I and earned high school credit. This places these students on an accelerated mathematics track. In science, based on the percentage of our students scoring at or above Level 3, grade 8 results improved and outperformed the state. Grade 5 test scores also improved over last year’s results. In reading, Corkscrew, Eden Park, Estates, Golden Terrace, Laurel Oak, and Sabal Palm elementary schools maintained or improved in all grade levels. In math, Big Cypress, Calusa Park, Corkscrew, Golden Terrace, Laurel Oak, and Parkside elementary schools maintained or improved in all grade levels. In science, 19 schools maintained or improved in grade 5, and of these 19 schools, 11 earned their highest science score in the last ve years. In reading, East Naples, Everglades City, Golden Gate, and Pine Ridge middle schools maintained or improved in all grade levels. Statewide, 8th grade math scores took a downward turn due to the number of 8th grade students taking Algebra I who are no longer required to participate in the FCAT 2.0 math assessment. However, we are expecting to see these 8th grade Algebra I students demonstrate learning gains for the school grade calculation. In Algebra I, East Naples, Gulfview, Manatee, and Pine Ridge middle schools improved. In science, all schools maintained or improved. In reading, Barron Collier and Immokalee high schools maintained or improved in grades 9 and 10. In Algebra I EOC, Barron Collier, Everglades, Golden Gate, Immokalee, Lely, and Lorenzo Walker Technical high schools maintained or improved for the rst time test-takers. We anticipate higher gain scores equal to the higher pro ciency scores of 22 percent. In the U.S. History EOC, all high schools improved for an overall gain of 14 percent. In an effort to continue supporting our students’ progress during the summer we need your help to keep learning alive. Visit for summer learning opportunities and information. ent or Student Moderator Times: Each forum is from 7–8:30 p.m. (doors open at 6:15 p.m. so you can meet the candidates).

DebateContinued From Page 1 FCATContinued From Page 1 Students First School board elections2014 Collier School Board Elections – don’t be confused. Unlike elections for the Board of County Commissioners, each voter gets 3 votes, one for each of the school districts. So what’s the process and schedule? This year School Board District 1, 3 and 5 have School board elections. It is an open county electionwhich means you vote for one candidate per school district. 9 Candidates have registered their intent with Collier Supervisor of Elections (SOE) so far. There are two ways each candidate can of cially qualify for the ballot. One way is to get 1806 signed and approved candidate petitions. These had to be submitted by May 19. The other way is to pay a fee of $1507. Final quali cation is June 20th. Absentee Ballots will go out July 23rd, early voting is August 14-23 and primary election day is August 26th. As of now, there are three candidates for District 1, four for District 3 and two for District 5. This could change until June 20th. Again, you get to vote for one person in each district. If any single candidate gets 50% plus 1 vote, he/she is elected to that district. If not, the top two candidates in each district advance to the November election. There are many really important issues. Do your homework! Attend one or more o f the Forums. Visit www.sw citizensalliance. com for a list of questions/issues and the schedule for a forum in your area. Vote Informed! SWFL Citizen Alliance Keith Flaugh Letter to the Editor

IMMOKALEE, Fla. (June 5, 2014) – Lipman, North America’s largest eld tomato grower, recently awarded more than $60,000 in scholarships to current and former high school students in Collier and Lee counties. This year, 11 seniors received rst-time scholarships totaling $13,000. The company also provided more than $50,000 in scholarship renewals to college students previously receiving education funding through Lipman. “We know that without outside sources like Lipman, higher education for many students in our area would not be possible,” said Jaime Weisinger, Lipman’s Director of Community Relations. “That’s why, back in 2003, we started this program to help deserving youth achieve their aspirations.” Scholarship recipients are chosen based on a number of factors, including demonstrated nancial need, class standing and educational goals. Since 2003, Lipman has provided more than $500,000 in scholarships to local students. Recent Lehigh Senior High School graduate Fatima Medina is one of 11 seniors to receive the rst-time scholarship. Medina is attending the Honors College at University of South Florida in the fall with plans to major in pre-medicine. “The Lipman scholarship has helped to ease the nancial burden of my college tuition,” said Medina. “My family and I are grateful for this opportunity, and I plan to continue to work hard to reapply for renewal throughout college.” In addition to scholarships, Lipman also offers a textbook reimbursement program to Collier and Lee county students who continue their education past high school. The fund reimburses textbook costs up to $150 per semester. “At Lipman, we’re invested in our local community and we want to ensure that the next generation has the tools they need to succeed,” added Weisinger, a member of the Lipman family. “Growing up, college was a priority for my family. Our goal is that every student seeking higher education can make it a reality through this opportunity.” About LipmanBased in Immokalee, Fla., Lipman is the largest eld tomato grower in North America, providing dependable year-round fresh produce through an integrated network of research and development, farming, processing, repacking and procurement solutions.

ADVERTISEand Get Results click on classifieds Collier County Domestic Animal Services (DAS) encourages people to give animals a second chance by adopting a shelter pet. That is what generous donor Lesley Brown Robert did by donating $20,000 to underwrite pet adoptions and to purchase pet supplies for homeless dogs and cats. With this charitable donation, DAS will be able to help more than 70 dogs and 100 cats get adopted. The adopter will only need to pay the $10 county license fee. Each adoption includes spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, and a microchip. The donation will also help pay for promotional and advertising costs to spread the word about these great pets in search of their forever homes. When animals arrive at the shelter, the shelter becomes a temporary home. This donation will help dogs and cats have a more comfortable stay while at the shelter. The cats will receive hand-made cat trees to provide a place to climb, play, and nap. The homeless dogs of DAS will receive Kuranda beds, which are indestructible beds that are easy to clean and maintain. The donation will also help pay for behavior enrichment tools and new leashes. “DAS is so thankful when donors like Lesley Brown Robert show such incredible generosity,” said Shelter Operations Manager Dr. Melissa Shyan-Norwalt. “What a gift to the animals and to adopters looking to give them a forever home,” Shyan-Norwalt added. This is the second donation from the Robert family. In 2012, a $5,000 donation was made to underwrite the adoption of 50 cats. For more information about the Adoption/ Retention Plan, call Daniel Christenbury, Public Information Specialist at 252-6957. Animal Services gets donation Allen Chapel A.M.E. Church (208 S. 3rd St.) has started a “Friday Night Live” Youth Church, which is held every Friday evening at 7 p.m. This ministry is led by Albert and Lee Lozano, who have an absolute passion for children’s ministry. Rev. Lori Snell, who serves as the Pastor of Allen Chapel, says that she is very pleased with the way that the Lozanos minister to the children who attend this growing ministry. They are teaching the children about worshipping God and living fruitful and Godly lives. They prepare kid-friendly, bible based lessons for the children. This multicultural ministry, which is geared toward children between the ages of 6-17, began two Fridays ago with approximately 30 excited children. Allen Chapel wants to invite your children to be a part of this unique children’s church experience. The children are served a free, hot, nutritious meal, rst, then they are led into a short praise and worship service, where they sing songs unto The Lord. Then they are divided by age groups into classes where they are taught the Word of God through interactive and hands-on lessons. Your children will be in the hands of professional educators. Pastor Lori Snell, Lee Lozano and Andria Pierre, who are an integral part of this ministry, are State of Florida certi ed educators; not only that, Alice German, who was a highly effective tutor in the Collier County School System for over 30 years and currently serves as a quali ed substitute teacher, also assists this ministry. Allen Chapel’s Youth ministry will have a Fun Day for youth on Saturday, June 14, 2014 at noon on the grounds of the Oak Haven Apartments. This will be geared for children who are ages 5-17. Free food, a bounce house, music, fun and games and of course, the word of God will be enjoyed by all.

IMMOKALEE CHAMBER OF COMMERCEChamber News Sponsored by these Chamber MembersNulls Notary & Tax ServicesMr. Estil Null started his business in 1974 doing notaries for people. He had been doing the tax returns for friends for a couple of years and they advised him to start doing them as a business. So he did just that and getting more and more education and doing the more complex returns. He became a member of the Southwest Florida society to accountants, a member of the Florida Society of Accountants and Tax Preparers and a member of the National Society of Accountants. He started going up in the of“cers for the state of Society and at this time he is proud to say he is President Elect for the State. A person taking accounting classes asked for Mr. Nulls advice just the other day on what it took to be successful in this type of business Mr. Null had two pieces of advice; (1) Always be truthful to your clients they may not like the way their returns turn out but always do them correctly. (2) You got to love math. He advices people on the “rst two things to ask a new tax preparer they go to is how many hours of education they get a year. If they are not getting at least 50 hours a year; do not use them. Second, ask them to show you the CPE certi“cates for their hours. It they do not meet the required hours or cannot produce their certi“cates do not use them. His business encounters tax returns all year long that are done wrong.
