We want to thank our students who accepted our Sun Blaze challenge to Care for our Community, as they donated hundreds of non-perishable food items for the Second Harvest Community Food Bank. Thank you, Mr. Banes, for your leadership and heart for our community. We are so proud of all our Stingray families that participated.
The fourth- and fifth-grade students sang and danced across America during their performance, Kids in America, at the Lake Nona High School Performing Arts Center. Families and friends filled the auditorium as the students gave a performance to remember. We want to thank our special area teachers for making this such an amazing tradition for our students and families.
Our students raised more than $29,000 through their efforts with our Boosterthon Fun Run, sponsored by our amazing PTA. The money will go toward a new playground at Sun Blaze. Reaching our goal through the generosity of people and local businesses is something we celebrate and want to share with our community.
We are thankful for all of our Partners in Education. We want to thank the following Partners that have provided incentives and sponsored events for Sun Blaze since August 2019: John Madison (John Madison Landscape Inc.); Kevin Kendrick (The Kendrick Team); NONA Soccer, Mathnasium of Lake Nona, Scott Sakowitz (Sakowitz Smiles); Domino’s Pizza; Championship Martial Arts; Astro Skating Center; Victory Martial Arts; and Synapse Science and Technology Learning Center.
