ASTRONOMY PICTURE OF THE DAY

Red Cloudbow over Delaware

Out2News.com

Image Credit & Copyright: Michael C. Neff (Neffworks Artography)

Explanation: What kind of rainbow is this? In this case, no rain was involved — what is pictured is actually a red cloudbow. The unusual sky arc was spotted last month during sunset in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, USA. When the photographer realized that what he was seeing was extraordinary, he captured it with the only camera available — a cell phone. Clouds are made of water droplets, and in a cloudbow a cloud-droplet group reflects back light from the bright Sun (or Moon) on the opposite side of the sky. Similar phenomena include fogbows and airplane glories. Here, the red color was caused by atmospheric air preferentially scattering away blue light — which simultaneously makes most of the sky appear blue. A careful inspection reveals a supernumery bow just inside the outermost arc, a bow caused by quantum diffraction.

MCSD Settles Contract with Teachers’ Union

Out2News.com

The Martin County School District is pleased to announce that it has settled a three year (2017-2020) contract agreement with the Martin County Education Association (MCEA). The agreement includes a $2.1 million salary package, which comprises a $300 salary increase for all instructional employees, an increase in the starting salary for teachers from $38,000 to $38,300 and performance salary increase for all highly effective teachers ($1,200-$1,500) and effective teachers ($900-$1,200). These increases will be retroactive to July 1, 2017.

In addition, agreements were reached by the parties on contract language addressing teacher transfers, evaluation procedures and timelines, long distance calling capabilities from the classroom, cameras in classrooms, clarification on compensatory time, as well as updates to acting Union committees. Although agreement was not reached on the elimination of the requirement for a set number of early release days and the high school instructional schedule, the parties agreed in a separate Memorandum of Agreement to continue to work collaboratively to address these issues outside of the 2017-2020 contract negotiations.

“I commend the District and MCEA for working together to settle the 2017-20 teacher contract. It demonstrates the willingness of both parties to work for the benefit of our greatest resource – our students,” said Laurie J. Gaylord, Superintendent, Martin County School District.

MCEA President, Karen Resciniti adds, “Both the District and the MCEA teams were dedicated to settling the contract without impasse. With both sides making compromises, we succeeded in doing just that. This is a positive step towards reversing a time when negotiations were extremely contentious.”

The proposed additions were ratified by the members of the Instructional Bargaining Unit on March 26 (with a 95% approval) and approved by the Martin County School Board unanimously on March 27.

Students Gain Impressive Job Skills Training
During Martin Youth LEADERship’s Career Day

Out2News.com

Stuart – Tuesday, April 17, 33 students of this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship Program held their eighth monthly session of the school year: CAREER DAY,

Career Day Program Chair, Linda Fitzpatrick (Senior Community Relations Coordinator, Keiser University) welcomed students to Steps to Success, a day for students to learn how to create resumes, interview for jobs and receive an overview about career planning. She was joined by fellow committee members Beth Lettengarver (Director of Admissions, The Pine School) and Kim Martin (Senior Manager/Financial Advisor, Rehmann) at The Pine School campus in Hobe Sound.

Linda Jaleska (Career and Transfer Services Specialist, IRSC) began the morning with job fair and interview tips. These tips were immediately put to use following the presentation, as students were treated to a Career Fair coordinated by Ms. Martin. More than two dozen local businesses were represented, giving students an opportunity to seek out summer employment, internships or simply to practice their new found interviewing skills.

The students, who had prepared in advance for Career Day by submitting initial resumes to Leslie Haviland (Director of Student Services, Keiser University), were given a professional critique of their resumes and the opportunity to strengthen them through Ms. Haviland’s guidance. They also learned the power of social media through Jeremy Harris (CEO, Growth Squad). Mr. Harris demonstrated that while the internet can be a powerful tool for job searches and making connections, posting the wrong information on one’s social media pages can come back to haunt students for many years to come. The morning concluded with a campus tour of The Pine School’s beautiful amenities and campus.

After a delicious lunch in the Pine School’s dining hall, students attended a presentation on Budgeting and Financial Success strategies given by Jesse Hert (Financial Advisor, Northwestern Mutual). The day concluded with a professional fashion show, coordinated by Ms. Fitzpatrick on the dos and don’ts of dressing appropriately in the workplace, complete with a stage runway, music and commentary.

The Martin Youth LEADERship Program is designed for high school sophomores and juniors in Martin County, and is in its 21st year. Founded and underwritten by LEADERship Martin County Alumni, MYL is an opportunity for high school students to develop and enhance their leadership skills. Students must apply through their guidance offices, and a limited number are selected to participate in this comprehensive nine-month program that is modeled after LEADERship Martin County. Upon completion, these young Leaders have learned about their community including history, government, business, arts and culture, criminal justice and the environment. Class members are given a rare opportunity to reach their highest leadership potential through sessions focusing on leadership enhancing activities. A diverse class representing various levels of leadership experience is selected annually.

For more information about MYL and how you too, might become a sponsor, donor, event coordinator, advisory board member or obtain a student application for 2018-19, please see the group web site at: www.leadershipmcalumni.com/youth-leadership, or contact Jeanne Dunn, Program Coordinator, at MartinYouthLeadership@gmail.com or at (772) 486-4695.

Students were then transported to the Arts Council in downtown Stuart. Nancy Turrell, Executive Director of the Council, gave students an overview of the history and purpose of the Council.

S.P.A.M. Robotics Wins South Florida First Robotics Competition Regional Tournament

Out2News.com

Stuart, FL – S.P.A.M. Robotics, the Martin County School District’s high school robotics team, entered this year’s South Florida FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Regional Tournament held this weekend with high expectations and are now headed to the international robotics competition in Houston at the end of the month.

After two days of intense competition, S.P.A.M. dominated the tournament. Along with their alliance partners, “Children of the Swamp” from Riviera Beach and “Minotaur” from Tampa, the team won the tournament that was held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.

“It is incredible to see first-hand what these students can build in six weeks! We are so proud of their outstanding performance in local and regional competitions and wish them the best of luck in Houston at the international tournament,” commented Laurie J. Gaylord, Martin County School District Superintendent, who attended the event.

Over 2,500 students were contending for the top award with a variety of robot challenges including lifting milk crates onto a scale and climbing a minimum of 12 inches off the ground. As robots completed successful moves, teams earned points to advance to the playoffs.

“It is great to see S.P.A.M. performing so well on the field and winning another Underwriters Laboratories Safety Award really demonstrates our team culture,” says Richard Soviero, S.P.A.M. teacher advisor and father of twin sons on the team. “However, the best aspect has nothing to do with awards. It is the visible maturation you can see as the students gain more experience each year with the team and the comments from S.P.A.M. alumni that come home from college and tell us how much this experience helped them with college classes and internships.”

This year, S.P.A.M. is comprised of 42 students from Jensen Beach High School, Martin County High School, South Fork High School, Clark Advanced Learning Center and home school. The team depends on donations and is supported by businesses and individuals throughout the community, as well as sponsorships by Pratt & Whitney, United Technologies Corp., Florida Power and Light, State of Florida, UL and Greg and Anneliece Wyler.

The FIRST Robotics Competition is a program that challenges high school students as they work with professional mentors to design and build a robot to compete in contests that measure the effectiveness of each robot, the power of collaboration and the determination of students.

Student Artists to Raise Awareness for Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

Out2News.com

House of Hope is inviting students in Martin County to help raise awareness about the National Letter Carrier’s Stamp Out Hunger food drive by participating in the first ever “Stamp Out Hunger Student Art Contest.” Young artists are urged to employ their creativity and talent to bring attention to the issue of facing hunger in our community and how important the annual food drive is for Martin County residents.

A grand prize will be awarded to each of the three divisions: elementary artists in kindergarten through fifth grade; middle school artists in sixth through eighth grade; and high school artists in ninth through twelfth grade. The three grand prize winners will receive a $100 Visa gift card, their artwork printed on limited edition t-shirts, and a recognition plaque. All Stamp Out Hunger Art Contest submissions will be exhibited at the Martin County Administration Building.

While most 2D art mediums are acceptable, the artwork should include elements such as the Letter Carriers and their trucks, food donations, food pantries, and how the donated food helps Martin County households. All entries must be received at House of Hope no later than 4 p.m. (EST) Friday, April 20, 2018. Complete contest rules and registration materials can be found online at hohmartin.org/artcontest

The winner from each category will be determined by the number of “likes” a piece of artwork receives on House of Hope’s Facebook page combined with a score from the judges’ panel. The Student Art Contest judging panel includes local notables Ed Ciampi, Tina McSoley, Eve Samples, and a representative from the National Association of Letter Carriers. Submitted artwork will be displayed at the Stamp Out Hunger Kick Off & Art Contest Awards Party May 9, 2018, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m where the winner from each category will be announced at 7 p.m. The party will be hosted at House of Hope’s Stuart Service Center located at 2484 SE Bonita Street in Stuart where the entire community is invited to join the student artists, local Letter Carriers and House of Hope.

The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is the nation’s largest single-day food drive, organized by the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC). This annual event provides food to local food pantries throughout the county, and House of Hope is fortunate to be the main recipient in Martin County. Letter carriers will place plastic bags in resident’s mailboxes to fill up with nonperishable food items. On May 12, 2018, residents place the bags next to their mailboxes where they will be collected by their letter carrier. Throughout the day a team of approximately 200 volunteers help sort the food items for future distribution in House of Hope’s four Client Choice pantries – Stuart, Hobe Sound, Jensen Beach and Indiantown.

Stamp Out Hunger provides about 65,000 pounds of food to House of Hope.

Martin Youth LEADERship: Students Focus on Health and Wellness!

Stuart, FL– On Tuesday, February 20, 36 students of this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship Program held their sixth monthly session of the school year: HEALTH AND WELLNESS DAY,

The Health and Wellness Day Program Co-Chairs, Barbara Faehnle (Senior Sales Executive at Hustons Commercial Interiors) and Dawn Cabrera (ALTOSS Coordinator at Tykes and Teens), kicked-off the program by welcoming Tykes and Teens’ Executive Director, Jeff Shearer, who provided the class with an educational overview of mental fitness and a lively discussion on dream interpretation. Tykes and Teens generously provided their location at 724 E. 10th Street in Stuart and underwrote all of the fees for the session.

Marybeth Pena, Nursing Program Specialist with the Martin County Health Department, then supervised the group in food knowledge, food safety, food preparation, and of course, a sampling of the students’ own creations. This hands-on cooking activity demonstrated the direct relationship between what one eats to one’s health and how much more cheaply and healthfully students can create food at home than on the go. Knowledge in hand, students made fruit and yogurt parfaits, “eggs in a basket”, fruit kabobs and fruit flavored spritzers.

It was time to work off those calories with an energizing introduction to basic fitness principles and exercises, supervised by Lewis J. Boglioli, Director of Stuart’s Financial Services Department and self-described fitness aficionado. Mr. Boglioli led the students in some basic exercise principles, allowing them to “earn” their healthy lunch of wraps, fruit salad and green salads.

After lunch, Wafa Turk, a certified yoga instructor, supervised the students with a basic yoga practice, including poses, breathing techniques and the connection between learning how to de-stress from our often hectic pace to find our inner voice. The day concluded when Dawn Cabrera led the students through an interactive activity, designed to create stress. She then discussed and gave the students handouts on the myriad of options they have to recognize, handle and report stress and depression.

The Martin Youth LEADERship Program is designed for high school sophomores and juniors in Martin County, and is in its 21st year. The MYL is an opportunity for high school students to develop and enhance their leadership skills. Students must apply through their guidance offices, and a limited number are selected to participate in this comprehensive nine-month program that is modeled after LEADERship Martin County. Upon completion, these young Leaders have learned about their community including history, government, business, arts and culture, criminal justice and the environment. Class members are given a rare opportunity to reach their highest leadership potential through sessions focusing on leadership enhancing activities. A diverse class representing various levels of leadership experience is selected annually.

For more information about MYL and how you too, might become a sponsor, donor, event coordinator, advisory board member or obtain a student application for 2018-19, please see the group web site at: http://www.leadershipmcalumni.com/youth_leadership.asp, or contact Jeanne Dunn, Program Coordinator, at MartinYouthLeadership@gmail.com or at (772) 486-4695.

Stuart, FL – The Florida Department of Education released the top three Outstanding Assistant Principal Achievement Award finalists today. Trisha Elliott, Assistant Principal of Crystal Lake Elementary, was selected as a top three finalist and will attend the Commissioner’s Summit for Principals on February 9 in Orlando.

With more than 20 years of experience in K-12 education, Mrs. Elliott joined Martin County School District in 2008 and held various roles before becoming the assistant principal at Crystal Lake Elementary School in 2013.

The Academy Orchestra
Featuring Lindsay Garritson

Stuart — What is classical music? Music that expresses life, truth, beauty, reveals facets of the human condition, inspires emotional responses, and continues to be relevant by becoming part of the history of ideas is classic or “classical” music. In a sense, its persistent relevance makes it quite contemporary.

What better way to tell the story of the orchestra than to invite back many of our prestigious alumni in a performance by the Academy Orchestra, the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony’s own mentoring orchestra? Conducted by Thomas Servinsky, this very special concert features award-winning pianist extraordinaire, Lindsay Garritson, who will join the group performing Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.

The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony provides challenging experiences in orchestral and individual performance for student musicians to broaden technical skills and artistic expression, to instill professionalism, and to enhance enjoyment of their musical talents individually and for their audiences.

Members of the orchestra may choose to compete in the annual Concerto Competition. The winner of this competition has the privilege of performing his or her piece with the orchestra during the spring concert season.

Each year the orchestra awards scholarships and grants to several of its young musicians. The scholarships are used by orchestra members to continue music education during a summer music program, to enter a college level musical curriculum in the fall, to obtain private lessons from professionals, or to assist in the purchase of musical instruments.

During its 27-year history, the orchestra alumni have been selected for highly-competitive auditions to attend major conservatories and university programs. Students often opt to continue their music studies in college, in addition to other academic majors.

The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization and is composed of the most talented student musicians from Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and northern Palm Beach counties. The conductors of the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony are Dr. John Enyart, Ben Enyart and Thomas Servinsky. The orchestra is funded by performance proceeds, orchestra membership fees and private and corporate support.

The Academy Orchestra
Featuring Lindsay Garritson

Out2News.com

Stuart — What is classical music? Music that expresses life, truth, beauty, reveals facets of the human condition, inspires emotional responses, and continues to be relevant by becoming part of the history of ideas is classic or “classical” music. In a sense, its persistent relevance makes it quite contemporary.

What better way to tell the story of the orchestra than to invite back many of our prestigious alumni in a performance by the Academy Orchestra, the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony’s own mentoring orchestra? Conducted by Thomas Servinsky, this very special concert features award-winning pianist extraordinaire, Lindsay Garritson, who will join the group performing Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.

The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony provides challenging experiences in orchestral and individual performance for student musicians to broaden technical skills and artistic expression, to instill professionalism, and to enhance enjoyment of their musical talents individually and for their audiences.

Members of the orchestra may choose to compete in the annual Concerto Competition. The winner of this competition has the privilege of performing his or her piece with the orchestra during the spring concert season.

Each year the orchestra awards scholarships and grants to several of its young musicians. The scholarships are used by orchestra members to continue music education during a summer music program, to enter a college level musical curriculum in the fall, to obtain private lessons from professionals, or to assist in the purchase of musical instruments.

Martin Youth LEADERship: Students Learn Consequences
of Breaking the Law During Law Enforcement Day

Out2News.com

Stuart, FL– On Tuesday, December 12, 36 students from this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship class held their fourth monthly session of the 2017-18 school year, LAW ENFORCEMENT DAY.

Students met with Public Defender Diamond Litty and the Honorable Chief Judge Elizabeth Metzger, both of the 19th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida. Ms. Litty and Judge Metzger gave the students an overview of the court system in Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee Counties. Among the topics of discussion were legal careers and the preparation for them, the Diversion court system offered in our local district, the election process, and the dangers of making simple errors in judgment which can have life-long consequences.

Appropriately, the students’ day in court was followed by an on-site visit and behind the scenes tour from the Martin County Sheriff’s Office and Correctional Facility. Students were given an Aviation Presentation by Doug Newsom, complete with lift off from a Sheriff’s Department helicopter. Students learned how vital helicopters and their pilots are to the MCSO, and saw the myriad of technology inside of one.

Students learned the dos and don’ts of 911 phone calls, thanks to Jessica Skowronski, and had the opportunity to view the call center in action. They also enjoyed a K-9 presentation from Billy Baker and learned a lot about how German Shepherds are trained to assist officers in tasks vital to law enforcement. They saw a S.W.A.T. demo, courtesy of Detectives Travis Parker, Jake Sirmans and Mark Diapoules, learning more about the equipment and the Bearcats used by the MCSO. Just prior to lunch, students toured a mock crime scene tour given by Sgt. Karl Nelson.

The highlight of the day was a talk given by Sheriff William Snyder about the students’ potential as future leaders of Martin County and beyond. Sheriff Snyder drew upon his decades of experience in law enforcement, encouraging MYL students to make conscientious and good decisions now. The day concluded with a tour of the jail, led by Sgt. Michael Gargan. The students learned how inmates are brought to and processed at the MCSO jail. All students spent a short time in a lock up facility to emphasize the experience of being imprisoned.

Many thanks go to program chairs Robert Bruton and Trisha Kukuvka, who organized the day. Thanks also go out to Gene Zweben and Alec Connolly for assisting with this important learning experience.

The Martin Youth LEADERship Program for high school students is in its 21st year. The group is continually striving to better serve the students that have made application, and been accepted in the program. The current Martin Youth LEADERship program is an opportunity for high school sophomores and juniors throughout Martin County to develop and enhance their leadership skills. Students must apply, and no more than 40 are selected to participate in this comprehensive nine-month program that is modeled after LEADERship Martin County. Upon completion, these young Leaders have learned about their community including history, government, business, arts and culture, criminal justice and the environment. Class members are given a rare opportunity to reach their highest leadership potential through sessions focusing on Covey’s Effective Habits and other leadership enhancing activities. Every effort is made to select a racially, gender diverse class representing various levels of leadership experience.

Martin Youth LEADERship:
Students Gain Insight Into Martin County’s Economy

Out2News.com

Stuart, FL– On Tuesday, November 14, 37 students from this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship class held their third monthly session of the school year, ECONOMICS DAY. The day provided students with on-site visits and hands-on leadership activities incorporating the themes of how our local community is impacted by the economic decisions of Martin County businesses and residents, and what choices students will have as future professionals of the Treasure Coast. Special thanks go to Session Leader Ted Astolfi, President of the Economic Council of Martin County, for coordinating the visits and the speakers.

Students were welcomed at the Stuart Jet Center by George, Stokus, Assistant County Administrator and former Witham Field Airport Manager. Mr. Stokus spoke on the economic impact of the airport, giving a simple lesson in economics regarding the financial impact of primary businesses in our community. Students were also treated to a walking tour of local planes on the tarmac.

From there, it was a brief trip to Martin Health Systems (North), where students were greeted by Liz Bishop, Education Manager and Dr. Michael Romano, Hospitalist. Dr. Romano spoke about health-related careers, including not only the obvious choices such as doctor and nurse, but also the abundant career options available at the MHS and other hospitals nationwide:: technicians, computer support specialists, security personnel, food preparation workers, transportation workers, innovators of medical devices, and much more. Students learned a little about how to prepare for a career in healthcare, as well as the economic impact of MHS along the Treasure Coast.

Students then took a bus to tour American Stairs, a Stuart-based company that works with residential developments all over Florida. Students were introduced to a vocation which does not require an undergraduate degree, and were able to tour the warehouse to learn more about the intricacies of stair building and working with residential and commercial clients. Special thanks go to Jamil Mikati, owner of American Stairs, who also sponsored lunch for the students and teacher chaperones.

The day concluded back at MHS, with an informative presentation and exercise in local county politics from Marcela Camblor. Ms. Camblor, an urban planner, is working with Knight Kiplinger, to develop a 3400 acre parcel of land in western Palm City known as Pineland Prairie. Ms. Camblor gave a brief overview of the demographics of Generation Y, and the logic behind the planning of Pineland Prairie, before allowing students to present their own ideas to a mock County commissioner panel.

CRYSTAL LAKE ELEMENTARY TEACHER PATRICK FARLEY
2017-18 MARTIN COUNTY EDUCATION FOUNDATION  TEACHER OF THE YEAR

Out2News.com

Stuart, FL – The Education Foundation of Martin County (EFMC) and the Martin County School District (MCSD) are proud to announce that Crystal Lake Elementary fifth grade teacher Patrick Farley has been named the District’s 2017-2018 Teacher of the Year.

The winner was announced during the Education Foundation of Martin County’s Teacher of the Year Awards Celebration on Friday, November 3, at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center. The event is presented by Infiniti Stuart and Audi Stuart.

Mr. Farley, a fifth grade teacher at Crystal Lake Elementary, has four years of teaching experience, all within the Martin County School District. Beyond his classroom walls, Mr. Farley chairs the school-wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) initiative at Crystal Lake, serves as a coach for the Robotics Team, Track Team, Cubing Club, coach and co-founder of the Running Club, Girls Basketball Head Coach at Anderson Middle School and is an active member of Covenant Fellowship Baptist Church.

Mr. Farley’s priorities as an educator are to deepen students’ leadership skills and independence while continuing to inspire and create communities within the classroom and school. In his application for the Teacher of the Year award, Mr. Farley wrote, “I show students a path to a brighter future by motivating them to work hard and teaching them how to problem solve with the resources and people around them. The only thing more rewarding than showing someone how powerful and capable they are is if that person is a child. ”

Mario Murgado, President/CEO of Infiniti Stuart and Audi Stuart, said, “There is a certain magic and beauty on the face of a child as they enter the classroom for the first time. The teacher may not even understand what is happening as they greet the children on that first day as they look into the eyes of a future president, scientist, fire fighter, Nobel peace prize winner, teacher, architect or nurse. The possibilities of what these children can become are limitless. One book, one child, one teacher can change the world!”

Kelly Buist, president of the EFMC, said of the winner, “The board members, staff and volunteers of the Education Foundation would like to sincerely congratulate Patrick Farley for winning this year’s Martin County Teacher of the Year award. Our entire community is fortunate to have Patrick, and the other hardworking Martin County teachers like him who are dedicated to improving the lives of our young people. We will proudly follow Patrick as he represents Martin County in the running for Florida’s Teacher of the Year award.”

Martin County School District Superintendent Laurie J. Gaylord said, “Patrick Farley is an exceptional educator who exemplifies what it takes to make a true difference in the classroom. I commend his enthusiasm in the classroom, his commitment to students, his passion for education and his leadership among the MCSD and Crystal Lake Elementary team.”

Crystal Lake Elementary principal Brenda Watkins wrote in her recommendation of Mr. Farley as Teacher of the Year, “Farley makes an impact in the classroom. Several years ago, he embraced growth mindset by researching and finding videos to show students that even famous people had failures. To help educate parents, he created a growth mindset presentation that was used on curriculum night. Farley continues to motive his students by being a role model and not giving up on them.”

Mr. Farley will now represent the Martin County School District in the competition to become the Florida Department of Education’s Teacher of the Year.

In addition to honoring the District’s 2017-18 Teacher of the Year, winners were named in the categories of Elementary, Middle, and High School Teachers of the Year:

Martin Youth LEADERship Class 21 Is Off to a Great Start!

Out2News.com

Stuart, FL– On Tuesday, September 21, 2017, the 40 students of this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship Program held their first monthly session of the 2017-2018 school year (LEADERship Day) at the Kane Center in Stuart. Session Chairman Alec Connolly offered the students a full day of ice-breaking, team building, and leadership exercises that helped students find their leadership style, and introduced them to goal setting. Connolly, from Gulf Stream Council Learning for Life, worked with several adult volunteers including: Gina Kenyon from Forward Electric & Air Conditioning, Jim Atkinson (aka Mr. H-A-P-P-Y) and Patrick Murray from the Martin County School District, and Cheree Ramirez from Manpower, Inc. In conjunction with the volunteer leaders, the program would not be possible without the support of the individual high school staff that assist: Wilmer (Skip) Morgan, from Martin County High School; AJ Diaz, from South Fork High School; Marianne Vinette from Jensen Beach High School; Chris McCrory from Clark Aadvanced Learning Center; and Beth Lettengarver from the Pine School.

In October, Martin Youth LEADERship will travel to Tanah Keetah Scout Reservation and participate in Project COPE (Challenge Outdoor Personal Experience), for a day of learning on the ropes course.

Martin Youth LEADERship Chair Diana Bruton states, “Good leaders are made not born. We understand that if you have the desire and willpower, you can become an effective leader. Good leaders are developed through a never ending process of self-study, education, training, and experience. Furthermore, leadership is a process by which a person influences others to accomplish an objective and directs the organization in a way that makes it more cohesive and coherent. Leaders carry out this process by applying their leadership attributes, such as beliefs, values, ethics, character, knowledge, and skills. Finally; we and our mentor volunteers understand the youth of Martin County are indeed our future, and it is our responsibility to provide them with the basics of Leadership”.

The program is completely underwritten and sponsored by many local businesses and in-kind donations, including but not limited to:

• Ampersand Shirt Shack
• LEADERship Alumni
• Martin County School District
• Panera Bread
• Publix
• Realtor Association of Martin County
• South Florida Water Management District/DuPuis Park

MUSIC, ART INSPIRE PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION
TREASURE COAST YOUTH SYMPHONY’S SPRING CONCERT

http://out2martincounty.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2016/10/17-Apr-TCYS-Art-resize-19.jpg

Stuart — The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony’s spring program set focus on major orchestral compositions directly inspired by individual visual artworks and art forms. Taking heed of the inspirational flow between visual arts and music this performance explores the personal reactions of the featured composers to artistic expressions of others. Their music became the “reveal” of what they see, hear, or feel.

Concerts are scheduled at three venues, which include the Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens, the Lyric Theatre in Stuart last evening, and the Church of the Good Shepherd in Tequesta on Monday, April 24th. Final concert begins at 7PM.  Tickets for the concert at the Church of the Good Shepherd may be purchased by calling (561) 746 4674.

The featured composers, Debussy, Respighi, and Mussorgsky provide tender emotional and intellectual inspiration to their audiences through their classic works, Fetes, Trittico Botticelliano, and Pictures At An Exhibition, respectively. Also included is a performance of Haydn’s Cello Concerto by our 2017 Concerto Competition winner, cellist Erick Lora.

Music conductors for the evening are Dr. John Enyart, Thomas Servinsky and Benjamin Enyart. The orchestra includes exceptionally talented young musicians from Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, and Palm Beach counties.

Educating to preserve, create, and celebrate our musical heritage, the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony continues to serve our community as one of its finest musical arts organizations for young musicians and orchestra audiences since 1987. The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony is a non-profit, 501(c) (3) organization.

Additional information on the youth symphony is available on the youth symphony’s website at http://www.treasurecoastyouthsymphony.com.

MUSIC, ART INSPIRE PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION
TREASURE COAST YOUTH SYMPHONY’S SPRING CONCERT

Out2News.com

Stuart — The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony’s spring program set focus on major orchestral compositions directly inspired by individual visual artworks and art forms. Taking heed of the inspirational flow between visual arts and music this performance explores the personal reactions of the featured composers to artistic expressions of others. Their music became the “reveal” of what they see, hear, or feel.

S.P.A.M. Robotics Prepares for World Championships

http://out2martincounty.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2016/10/17-Apr-SPAM-group-shot-resize-1.jpg

STUART—S.P.A.M. Robotics, the local high school FIRST Robotics team, is preparing to compete at the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) FIRST Championships to be held April 19-22 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX.

Fresh off their victories at the FRC Orlando Regional at University of Central Florida on March 9-11 and the FRC Rocket City Regional in Huntsville, AL on March 23-24, the team of 74 high school students and their teachers, coaches and mentors are making final preparations for Championships.

This year’s challenge, called FIRST STEAMWORKSSM, surrounds a theme where two adventure clubs from an era in which technology relied on steam power prepare their airships for the ultimate long distance race. Each three-team alliance scores points in three ways: by collecting fuel, represented by small yellow balls, and scoring them in a low or high goal in a boiler; by retrieving and delivering gears to their airship in order to start their rotors; and by boarding the airship by climbing a rope. The alliance with the highest score wins the match.

At their season Kickoff in January, S.P.A.M. watched a worldwide reveal where teams were shown the FIRST STEAMWORKS game field and challenge details for the first time, and received a Kit of Parts made up of motors, batteries, control system components, construction materials, and a mix of additional automation components – with limited instructions. Working with adult Mentors, students have six weeks to design, build, program, and test their robots to meet the season’s engineering challenge.

“The time and resource constraints FIRST implements really challenge us to work together and collaborate on a highly professional level,” said Shantanu Jakhete, S.P.A.M. Vice-Captain and Pit Crew leader. “In fact, you could compare S.P.A.M. to a mix between an established and organized engineering company and an entrepreneurial start-up because of our unique combination of proven designs and crazy new ideas. As a result, our technical teams have the most talented, creative and best problem-solving students you will find in Martin County. It’s very motivating to work alongside a team that is constantly pushing the boundaries of our robot performance.”

S.P.A.M. was recognized with judges’ awards at each of their regional competitions. At the FRC Orlando Regional, the judges presented the team with the Industrial Design Award sponsored by General Motors. This award celebrates form and function in an efficiently designed machine that effectively addresses the game challenge. At the FRC Rocket City Regional, the team was awarded the Engineering Inspiration Award which celebrates outstanding success in advancing respect and appreciation for engineering within a team’s community. This coveted award comes with an added benefit where NASA sponsors the $5,000 registration fee at the 2017 FIRST Championship.

“It’s been an exciting season so far but there’s nothing like the world championships,” said Tyler Woods, team Captain and S.P.A.M.’s lead robot driver for the second year. “To win a regional is an achievement in itself. But every team steps up their game at Championships. As the driver, I depend on everyone to bring their A game. I need our scouting team gathering data on the other robots. I need a coach and the rest of the drive team on the field executing our game plan. I need a pit crew back in the pits ready to fix any mechanical issues or make code adjustments. It’s such a team effort. It’s exciting to see it all come together.”

S.P.A.M., which stands for Speed, Power & Maneuverability (www.spamrobotics.com), is made up of high school students from Jensen Beach High School, Martin County High School, South Fork High School, Clark Advanced Learning Center and home schools. This year the team is celebrating 20 years of building robots while encouraging the next generation of science, technology and engineering leaders.

FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, www.firstinspires.org ) was founded in 1989 by accomplished inventor Dean Kamen to inspire an appreciation of science and technology in young people. Based in Manchester, N.H., FIRST designs accessible, innovative programs to build self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills while motivating young people to pursue opportunities in science, technology, and engineering.

***Book Review***

Don’t Be That KID!

http://out2martincounty.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2016/12/17-Apr-Dont-e-that-kid-cover.jpg

 

“Lois McGuire has created an engaging way through rhymes for elementary-age children to talk about and then address positive character behaviors. I purchased a Don’t Be That KID! At School book for each of my grandchildren and a resource guide for their parents.” Bill P., Grandfather of 5

“The Don’t Be That KID! At School Resource Guide provides my teachers with a year-long plan that supports their students in engaging in positive behaviors and social interactions. Both the book and the resource guide are invaluable tools to help our students feel confident and our classrooms feel secure.” Lauren B., Principal.

These are just two testimonials concerning Lois McGuire’s new character education books: Don’t Be That KID! At School and the Don’t Be That KID! At School Resource Guide. Dr. McGuire feels that building positive character values is as important as teaching core subject areas. She says, “What good is being an ‘A’ student if you aren’t an ‘A’ person? Parents and teachers need to work together to infuse the key character education principles into their children’s daily lives. Make no mistake about it, character in not just innate – it can be taught and learned which is why I wrote Don’t Be That KID! At School.”

Don’t Be That KID! At School is about a little goat who misbehaves at school but ultimately learns his lesson. Each scene provides an opportunity to discuss character building values, such as honesty, consideration, responsibility and respect. The “Don’t Be That KID! At School Resource Guide accompanies the book but can be used independently by teachers and parents to help reinforce desired behaviors and character education principles. Although separated into appropriate activities for grades K-1, 2-3 and 4-5, the Guide can easily be adapted for all ages and abilities.

Learn more about Don’t Be That KID! At School and the Don’t Be That KID! At School Resource Guide by going to the website: dontbethatkid.net Both books can be purchased through the website or through Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble .com.

Local Cellist Performs Winning Concerto
For The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony

Out2News.com

Little did Erick Lora and his family realize when their 10 year old son began playing the cello, that it would lead him into a broader music career, joining the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony and being selected as its 2017 Concerto Competition winner for the symphony’s April concerts.

Lora has been with the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony since 2014 and was selected to perform with the Academy Orchestra, the mentoring orchestra for the Youth Symphony. He won first place in the Florida Association of Christian Colleges & Schools (FACCS) state competition for his string solo several times and was chosen to perform on National Public Radio’s Young Musician Spotlight, hosted by public radio station WQCS / 88.9 FM. The young cellist also performs regularly with the Indian River Pops Orchestra.

The three concerts featuring the music of Modest Mussorgsky and his Pictures At An Exhibition will be available on the Treasure Coast and Palm Beach County. They include performances at the Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens on April 10th, the Lyric Theatre on April 17th in Stuart and on April 24th at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Tequesta. All shows are at 7 p.m. Tickets are available through each Box Office venue.

Now at 17 years old, Erick Lora will be performing in the three concerts, plus presenting his award-winning Concerto Competition selection, Haydn’s Cello Concerto. Other music selections will include Debussy’s Fetes from The Three Nocturnes, Respighi’s Trittico Botticelliano and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, the theme of the evening concerts.

Working with the students on their music are Conductors Dr. John Enyart, founder of the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony, Tom Servinsky, and Benjamin Enyart. The musicians represent Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Palm Beach counties. Additional information from the Youth Symphony is available on its website at http://www.treasurecoastyouthsymphony.com or by contacting the office directly at

Art Reflection By Mimi McCallum

Out2martincounty.com

Through my art I aspire to capture moments in time that relate to memories that touch our hearts. I aspire to create images of objects, places and figures with pleasing shapes and energetic color.

My “people stories” are paintings including figure in them. This is a subject I enjoy painting. My people are All People and an experience we can share. The “At the Beach” series provides glimpses of sensual and relaxing times that are the beach. The beach offers a refuge from the routine and mundane. The figures enjoy the warm sun, the wind blowing their hair, umbrellas, towels, sand in their toes and the beauty of the ocean.
