Students, teachers and staff at Flagler Schools have been very busy. We’re just halfway through the third quarter and we’re all set for a little spring weather to roll into Flagler County!
Now let’s take a look at what’s happening on our campuses.
Belle Terre Primary School
Late last month, Mr. Howell and the Men of Iron group at Lifecoast Church organized, funded and replaced the fences in our butterfly gardens. It was freezing cold, but they were quick and efficient and finished in less than three hours.
We know the kids will be very excited. In the spring, Ms. Lekos’ kindergarten class hopes to plant more flowers and study the life cycle of butterflies with live caterpillars.
Flagler-Palm Coast High School
FPC i3 students presented their ancient civilization theme parks they created on Co-Spaces and Minecraft to Ms. Cooke’s sixth grade class at Belle Terre Elementary. Two groups also drew their theme parks by hand in a beautiful display of their artistic abilities. Theme parks included the ancient civilizations of the Romans, Greeks, and Mayans, as well as ancient Japan and ancient China. I3 student speakers: Matthew Trask, Savannah (Vann) Wison, Adriana Cazers, Natalia Alicea and Essie Bass Gonzalez.

Indian Trails High School
Seventh and eighth graders participated in a Mustang Mentor program in partnership with Belle Terre Elementary. In this new after-school program, students from ITMS mentor students from Belle Terre Elementary School. ITMS Fellows serve as role models and help elementary students while developing valuable leadership skills. Participating ITMS Fellows have a history of exemplary behavior, outstanding records and grades.
The ITMS Builder’s Club is sponsoring a fundraiser to benefit The Sheltering Tree, a homeless shelter in Bunnell. The club sells candy during Valentine’s Day week. One hundred percent of proceeds will benefit the Flagler County homeless community.
Old Kings Elementary School
OKES looked like Kennedy Space Center last week as rockets flew all over campus. Ms. Campanella’s, Ms. Stone’s and Ms. Wells’ classes deal with strength and motion. They received a grant from the Flagler County Education Foundation to help bring their lessons to life. Each student designed their own rockets, including nose cones and ailerons. They were trying to see which rocket had the most power.
Buddy Taylor High School
BTMS couldn’t be happier for a 7th grader Spencer Edelstein. He walked out of the BTMS cafeteria last Thursday night as the district spelling champion. His winning word was the Richter scale. Spencer now continues to represent Flagler Schools at the 78th Annual First Coast Regional Spelling Bee in Jacksonville on April 1. Good luck, Spencer!
Bunnell Elementary School
Our BES Bullpups are filled with Olympic spirit after Principal Sanfilippo leads the campus in an Olympic Torch Lighting Ceremony. We can’t wait to see how Team USA performs at the Winter Olympics.
