Message from the Superintendent
 
It is incredible that we are already about halfway through summer! We have been keeping busy with preparations for the 2019-2020 school year and are looking forward to welcoming our #CCPSFamily back into our classrooms!
 
I want to extend a warm congratulations to Michael Wynn of Sunshine Ace Hardware who was recently honored as a 2019 Commissioner's Business Recognition Award (CBRA) recipient. We sincerely thank Mr. Wynn for his continued partnership with CCPS and his dedication to education and student achievement. We appreciate him and all of the community partners who are a part of our #CCPSFamily.
 
As we continue through the summer, remember to read, read, and read some more! Consider accessing our "Keep Learning Alive" resource to keep students engaged and learning.
 
Enjoy the rest of summer!

COMMUNITY PARTNER SPOTLIGHT
 
 
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has a strong focus on supporting the academic achievement of minority and disadvantaged students in Collier County. With an emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM), they work to provide programs throughout the school year as well as during the summer. One such program is the Raising the Bar program, a college preparatory program for students in grades 8-12 centered on increasing grade point average. The STEAM program, which is a joint venture with Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU), welcomes students to the FGCU campus for a two-week camp. While there, students get the opportunity to live on campus and participate in four hours of math and science labs. In addition, the NAACP has a Youth Council, a great place for young leaders who are interested in civil rights and equality. These programs and many others offered by the NAACP are supporting student success, student leadership, and equality. Thank you to the NAACP and its partners who share this vision which is focused on the success of our students.
