What's Happening in Lee County Schools

  • INSPIRED. One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish...Go Fish!

    A seven-legged octopus. A tuna that can't carry a tune. A blowfish with debilitating allergies. A tiger shark who faces criticism for befriending non-sharks. “Go Fish” – a musical production currently set to be staged at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 11 and Friday, April 12 by a group of about 50 third, fourth and fifth graders from J. Glenn Edwards Elementary – is all about accepting yourself and celebrating diversity.

  • INSPIRED. Kattie Goins, Bus Driver of the Year

    Outstanding Bus Driver of the Year Kattie Goins may start her day early and get home late — she is at West Lee Middle School at 5:30 a.m. to get her bus ready for the students she picks up every day and then works another job after school at Ron's Barn — but that mean she doesn't love what she does. “I like working,” she says. “I don't like missing work. I've not missed a day on my bus in two years.”

  • INSPIRED. The Augustine Literacy Project

    Barbara Yuskevich is the founder of the all-volunteer Lee County Literacy Council, which makes its primary goal to “improve the reading, writing, spelling and comprehension of children and adults” through “research-based literacy instruction in a nurturing environment.” And nowhere is that goal – and Yuskevich's passion for literacy – more evident than at B.T. Bullock Elementary School in Sanford, where the Literacy Council's Augustine Literacy Project is at work to help first and second graders improve their reading skills to at or even above grade level.

  • INSPIRED. IB: "The Gold Standard"

    High-achieving students have flocked to Advanced Placement courses for decades as a way to challenge themselves academically and elevate their chances to attend top-tier universities. But that has changed in recent years as the International Baccalaureate diploma has emerged as perhaps the most rigorous way to prepare for higher education.

  • INSPIRED. Service to Community

    Thanks to a lot of hard work on the part of Jacob Bowers and Tyler Profio, Lee County Schools will be well represented at two of the nation's military academies when classes convene this fall. Bowers, a senior at Southern Lee High School, and Profio, a senior at Lee County High School, have been accepted to attend the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado and the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, respectively.
