What's New at the Middle School?
Lucas K. and his mother, Robyn, gave a presentation on Hanukkah beginnings and traditions to Lucas' 7th grade World Cultures class. In addition to learning about how Hanukkah began, they also taught the class about foods eaten during the time and brought in samples for everyone to try; latkes (potato pancakes), gelt (gold coins), and jelly doughnuts! The Eagles learned a lot and really enjoyed it. Thank you, Lucas and Robyn!

Empowering Women in Technology Startups (EWITS) is a 10-week program designed to give women the experience of becoming an entrepreneur by creating a business plan and investor pitch in a simulated environment using patented technology from UF. During the program, participants learn about the various aspects of bringing a product to market and what it takes to be successful. At the end of the sessions, the investor presentation and business plans are reviewed to provide feedback to the teams and to determine a winner.
