Students participate in First Geography Bee
In December, FLVS had 19 students participate in our school’s very first Geography Bee. They tested their geography skills in a Kahoot-style setting with questions from a variety of categories including: State Savvy, Forces of Nature, and Weird but True. The top 10 contestants have earned the opportunity to compete at the FLVS face-to-face competition in Orlando on Thursday, Jan. 25. Congratulations to all the students who participated, and to the following who will be at the live competition: Michael Berlin, Ayden Bushway, Kaleb Bushway, Spencer Erickson, Sierra Johnson, Emily Maynard, Jacob Maynard, and Isabella Rodriguez. We’ll share our winner next month!
School Choice Week
One of your most valuable assets is your freedom to choose! This year, National School Choice Week is being held Jan. 21-27. FLVS means choice. Whether you’re a traditional student looking to get ahead, the parent of a homeschooled elementary student, or a family interested in full-time options, our courses meet a wide range of student needs.
