FLVS Corkboard: February Highlights

February is flying by and there are lots of fun-filled activities to get involved with at FLVS!

First, a friendly reminder that Presidents’ Day (Monday, Feb. 19) is a designated holiday for all FLVS instructors and support staff.

Later in the week, FLVS students and staff will be visiting Tallahassee to meet Florida’s legislators and explore the capitol on Wednesday, Feb. 21. Cancelled – follow us for updates about future events. 

Spring Enrollment

Spring is just around the corner. Have you signed up for your spring courses yet? If you’re a student taking courses with FLVS Flex, spring is a great time to get ahead, make up a credit, take a course that isn’t offered at school, or satisfy your online course graduation requirement for high school.

Congrats to our Geography Bee Winner!

Last month, FLVS 6th-grade student Jacob Maynard won the school competition of the National Geographic Bee. FLVS is the first virtual school in the competition’s 30 years to participate!

FLVS students and families came from Deltona, Jacksonville, Coral Springs, and Bonita Springs for the face-to-face final competition held in Orlando. Emily Maynard placed second and Michael Berlin came in third. Mrs. Elise Harris, FLVS social studies cohort teacher and Geography Bee coordinator, said she and fellow teachers created the Geography Club in August with hopes to nurture an appreciation for geography and how it can help students better understand the past, current events, and our neighbors in a fun and educational way.
