Treasure Coast High School, AFJROTC Unit FL-20081 conducted several events in celebration and remembrance of our fallen military members on Veterans Day. With two Color Guards being performed consecutively in addition to the Veterans Day Ceremony held at Veteran Memorial Park, many cadets dedicated their time to honoring veterans. Furthermore, all events were attended by a plethora of veterans from every military branch, with every cadet earnestly learning about the unique experiences each veteran had to tell. A few of our most physically fit cadets participated in a 4-mile ruck march in support and recognition of the issues of PTSD among the veteran community, with each delivering a backpack full of canned foods to support veterans in need at the conclusion of their march.
Morningside Elementary school students and teachers honored Veteran families by holding an assembly. Students from all grades greeted the Veteran guests as they entered the school building and the students in the Gifted Program created skits, read poems and sang songs to honor the individuals who have served or are currently serving in the Armed forces. Veteran guests appreciated the recognition and enjoyed the assembly.
The Forest Grove Middle School Honors Geometry classes learned how triangles and their points of concurrency assist in solving one of the most important problems in the world – supplying rural communities with clean water! Students studied areas of the earth in need of clean water and the traditional ways of bringing clean water to these areas. They then studied points of concurrency and used those points to determine optimal locations for places to dig wells or provide point source filtration. Pictured are Colin Lawrence and Sydnee Rubenstein (left to right) sharing their discoveries about Kenya, Africa.
