In addition, award recipients documented active and effective re prevention programs as well as a clear commitment to reducing the number of house res in the community. Although residential res in the U.S. account for only 20 percent of all res, the y result in 80 percent of all re deaths. The NASFM Foundation is committed to reducing that number.

We started our new season on Saturday, August 30th at Eden Park. Nearly 50 kids were in attendance. Players wore their brand new practice uniforms: blue socks, blue shorts, and a white shirt with the ISS logo on the front and our main tenets, Discipline, Respect, and Love, printed on the back. They were an impressive looking group. After practice, the players were invited to participate in the Immok-Olympics, an event hosted by Ave Maria University at the Parks and Recreation Center. The kids had a great time playing games, making crafts, eating lunch, and getting wet in the water activities. Also, the children got to spend one-on-one time with the students of Ave Maria, which made the event special. In spending this quality time together both groups of students became more comfortable with each other, which sets them up for a good relationship moving forward.

You may recall that around this time last year, I shared that Pinecrest Elementary School received recognition from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) HealthierUS School Challenge for excellence in nutrition and physical activity. We now have two additional schools joining the ranks and both are right here in Immokalee. Highlands Elementary (HLE) and Village Oaks Elementary (VOE) schools have both been given the very prestigious HealthierUS School Challenge Award, and now join the 1,219 schools nationwide to be deemed HealthierUS Silver Schools. The HealthierUS School Challenge was launched ten years ago and revamped in 2010 by First Lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign. The Challenge is all about making lunchrooms smarter creating healthier school environments through promotion of nutrition and physical activity. Applying is completely voluntary and requires participating schools to assume leadership roles in helping students learn to make healthier eating and physical activity choices that will hopefully last a lifetime. It's about raising a healthier generation of kids. Congratulations to Highlands and Village Oaks for this great accomplishment. Both schools will be recognized during Tuesday's (September 9) Regular School Board Meeting at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Administrative Center. And, on the note of healthy eating, National School Lunch Week is coming up in about a month or so October 13th through October 17th. This year's theme"Get in the Game with School Lunch" will encourage kids to nd balance between healthy eating and physical activity. During National School Lunch Week, schools will be getting students excited about healthy food choices. I'll share more as we get closer to the celebration. Finally, there's a date I want to make sure you put on your calendar. Every year, Immokalee is host to one of our Regular School Board Meetings. This year, the meeting will be held on at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 14, 2014, at Immokalee High School. We hope you will consider joining us.

Collier: Recently, the Florida Department of Health in Collier County (DOH-Collier) and the Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida (HCN) entered into a memorandum of agreement to support each other during a medical disaster. The agreement marks an invaluable partnership between the two agencies, providing cooperative operations during a wide spread communicable disease outbreak or any situation that causes a surge on our medical system. HCN is a private, not-for-pro t federally quali ed health center providing primary medical and dental care to the community since 1977. With more than 40 providers and 14 Collier County locations, HCN’s professional staff and state of the art facilities are an excellent resource for the community and an exceptional partner for DOH-Collier. One of the many state mandated functions of DOH-Collier is to provide life-saving antibiotics, anti-toxin, or vaccine to the county’s population, as rapidly as possible, during any emergent situation. DOH-Collier strives to attain this goal by pursuing community partnerships with organizations like the Healthcare Network. Other notfor-pro t clinics that have also entered into partnerships with DOH-Collier include the Neighborhood Health Clinic and the Senior Friendship Center.
