They were surprised with the good news by volunteers and board members of The Education FoundationChampions For Learning. In total, the Foundation delivered 119 grants to 41 schools in Collier County to support creative, innovative experiences for students. Because of a $15,000 charitable gift from Herb and Ann Rowe to support the technology and capacity for the Connect With A Classroom grant program, every penny donated from the community goes to fund innovative teacher requests. Additional support for the portal was provided by PNC Foundation. "After funding classroom grants for many years and seeing the impact rst-hand, we understood how important it was for teachers and the community to have this online tool, and we decided to also contribute to the capacity that supports the program for teachers," said Ann Rowe. The following provided signi cant contributions to fund teacher grants: Suncoast Credit Union Foundation, Lucie Jenny MacCarthy Music Fund of the Community Foundation of Collier County, Scripps Howard Foundation, State Farm, Mary Breese, and the proceeds from the specialty State of Florida Educational License for Learning Plate Fund ( When the plate is purchased or renewed in Collier County, $20 of the fee comes back to Collier County and Champions For Learning invests 100% of those dollars in classroom grants. The award-winning teachers requested classroom funding through the Champions For Learning's website where all grant requests can be viewed and ful lled by the community. The Education Foundation began funding classroom grants almost 25 years ago. The online Connect With A Classroom program began in 2003, allowing teachers to post funding requests (from $20 to $2,000) for creative, innovative experiences for their students, which also invests in best practices to share with other teachers. Teachers will continue to post requests online.

Become a Champion for Learning and visit GrantsContinued From Page 1 October is always a busy month for national observances and we recognized quite a few of these at the School Board Meeting held right here in Immokalee earlier this week. Before I get into the recognitions, however, I want to take a moment to commend both the Immokalee High School (IHS) JROTC and the Marching Band for their participation during the opening of the Board Meeting. The IHS JROTC Color Guard, under the leadership of Colonel Robert Hine and Sergeant Major Manuel Portes, was poised and looked great as they presented the ags. Thank you to Cadet Lieutenant Colonel Argelia Cortes-Cruz, Cadet Captain Jai Bell, Cadet First Sergeant Enrique Vega, and Cadet First Sergeant Jennifer Gomez. And, a special thank you to Cadet Corporal Guadalupe Torres for an eloquent delivery of the Pledge of Allegiance. The Marching Indians, under the direction of Band Director Brandon Milhoan, were phenomenal! You could feel the energy in the room as they played the “Star Spangled Banner” followed by a couple of their pep songs. The entire audience got into the action toward the end of their performance! Great job, Indians! So our recognition portion of the Board Meeting began by honoring the Immokalee High School BETA Club for their championship wins at the 34th National BETA Convention in Virginia this past summer. The theme was “Making History” and that’s exactly what they did! They were crowned national champions in the “character skit” category – a rst-time ever achievement – as well as in the “campaign skit” category. They were also runners up in both the group talent and scrapbook categories. Congrats, BETA’s! We continued the recognitions by learning that one in four women have been touched by domestic abuse and we proclaimed October as National Domestic Violence Awareness month. The impact of domestic violence is wide-ranging, directly affecting women, children, men, and society as a whole. Collier County Public Schools partners with The Shelter for Abused Women & Children and is committed to taking a rm position against domestic violence and teen dating violence. We remain focused on ensuring that children are safe in their schools and in their homes. Our third recognition celebrated Hispanic Heritage month and highlighted a brand new partnership developed right here in Immokalee. As you may know, students that come from a home where mom or dad don’t speak English is a common challenge in Collier County. To address this, leaders at the Immokalee Technical Center (iTECH) in partnership with Guadalupe Social Services have created an English Language Learning program for Hispanic mothers. The classes are held at Guadalupe Social Services with a great curriculum and child care provided. This program will undoubtedly have a huge impact in the community. In the words of iTECH principal Dorin Oxender, “Teach one child, impact that child…teach a mother, impact the whole family.” Finally, we recognized Red Ribbon Week as the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country. As substance abuse is one of the most common risk factors impacting the behavior and physical health of kids, Red Ribbon Week gives us an extra moment to reinforce the importance of drug prevention not only among our students, but the entire community. During the Board Meeting, we learned how Drug Free Collier, Collier County’s substance abuse prevention organization, works with Collier County Public Schools to empower teens to stay clean to the core. We also heard from the Collier County Sheriff’s Of ce and learned of the many prevention programs and activities they do within our schools and in the community to combat substance abuse. Thank you to both Drug Free Collier and the Collier County Sheriff’s Of ce for all they do. It is always very welcoming to have our yearly October School Board Meeting in Immokalee. Thank you to Immokalee High School and principal Ken Fairbanks for their generous hospitality! Students First Submitted photo Kelly Trotter, Immokalee Middle School, was one of the winners.

3 Immokalee Bulletin October 16, 2014 The Soccer Pit Cobras High School Div ision boys and girls nished strong in the County Cup. After having some ups and downs during a season that started back in August, both boys and girls made to the Championship match this past weekend at Kelly Road in Ft Myers. After going undefeated in round play, the girls beat San Carlos 1-0 in the semi nals to make it to the Championship game. In the nals they played the Ft Myers Strikers, and these young ladies left their hearts on the eld. They lost the game 1-0 with about 3 minutes left to play. Our young ladies gave it all and gained the respect of every team in the tournament. A huge Thank You to their coaches Ernesto Gomez and Eric Leon. This is the 4th y ear coaching the girls and they have done a remarkable job with them. The boys entered Sunday needing 4 goals in order to pass Lehigh on goal differential, but more important they couldn't give up a goal and that's exactly what they did. They beat North Ft Myers 4-0 to make it to the Championship game. In the nals they faced Ft Myers Beach, a team that had beaten them twice 2-0 and 6-0. The boys lost a thriller by the score of 1-0. All of the players need to be commended for a great weekend of soccer. They represented our community and club extremely well. Many thanks to rst year Head Coach Joe Novotny who put up many days of personal time to give these boys an opportunity to play. Also thanks to Coach Damas for helping with practices and being at many of their games. These boys and girls will now bring their skills to Immokalee High School Soccer. The school teams will begin play the rst week of November. Come and support your local soccer program.

The Soccer Pit Cobras in collaboration with the Collier County Parks and Rec will be holding an informational meeting on Thursday, October 23, 2014 at 7 p.m. at the Immokalee Sports Complex. This meeting is to determine if there's enough parental interest to offer soccer to youngsters ages 3-8. We will have a demonstration so that parents and the kids can see the how the games will be played. This is NOT a registration. The registrations will take place at a later date. New soccer league for ages 3-8 Through the vision of Leonard Lee Ratner and his business partners in the Lee County Land and Title Company, Lehigh Acres grew from a patch of southwest Florida's wild lands to a beautiful, booming community. Carla Ulakovic celebrates this ful lled dream and more in her new book, Lehigh Acres, the latest addition to Arcadia Publishing's iconic Images of America series. "This book examines the history of Lehigh Acres from the birth of corporation town, the cultivation of a true community, the exodus of the corporation, real estate boom and bust and small town charms that remain in Lehigh Acres." Ulakovic says. With the expansion of the Lee County Land and Title Company's holdings, Lehigh A cres grew to one of the biggest suburban communities in the country. With more than 200 images, Ulakovic reveals the city's growth and prosperity. Carla said, "The increase in population has led to the addition of new schools; new businesses have been built, and community clubs, organizations, and agencies continue to promote community pride through festivals and cultural events." Just as Leonard Lee Ratner did not solely grow Lehigh Acres, so Ulakovic credits the Lehigh Acres community with giving her stories, history, and inspiration for this book. "This project was sparked by a curiosity for the town I grew up in and fueled by a desire to preserve its past. It would have been a near-imposable feat to compile this story if not for the diligent historical preservation done by many of this community's members," Ulakovic said. Highlights of Lehigh Acres include: Over 200 images of Lehigh Acres from 1950 to present day A pro le of the founder and pioneers of Lehigh Acres Images of Lehigh Acres' rst institutions and organizations Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at (888)-313-2665 or online. Local author showcases Lehigh A cres rich history in images
