FLVS HOPE Course Video Tour

Also from Tuesday’s inbox…

The Virtual Voice has posted a new item, ‘FLVS HOPE Course Video Tour’

Thinking about getting your Physical Education credits online at FLVS this
year?
Perhaps you have some questions…like how in the world does online P.E. even
work? It’s a great question – and we’ll be glad to answer it!

The answer is, in fact, pretty simple. With the FLVS HOPE course (short for
Health Opportunities through Physical Education), students get to enjoy all the
good stuff about health and P.E. on their own time and schedule.

HOPE is taught by certified instructors who help students work at their own pace
on the health and fitness goals that they choose. In the course, students learn
about flexibility, cardio, strength training, nutrition, wellness and more.

The Pulse Newsletter: December Edition

From Wednesday’s inbox…

Sept-15-Pulsesocial-bar

The Pulse: December Edition

What do Elli, Terrance, and Brayden have in common? They are all students with FLVS pursuing their dreams and their education! Learn more inside this issue of The Pulse newsletter.

Not only does the quality of education received through FLVS prepare students for success after they’ve completed their studies, the flexibility and innovative class delivery provides students the opportunity to launch their dreams while still pursuing their education – achieving success in both.

Students Pursue Dreams and Their Education



Since its inception in 1997, FLVS has worked tirelessly to provide the highest quality education, providing the skills and knowledge students need for success.

Below are a few snapshots of students we heard from this year.

Did You Know?
During the holiday hustle, it’s easy to decrease exercise and increase eating. When you interrupt your healthy routine, weight gain, stress, tiredness, and then feeling guilty for overindulging, can occur. Help “un-busy” yourself by setting some time each day to exercise and indulge in healthy habits. You deserve it!

Elli Student Skater

Terrance says, “FLVS gave me the opportunity to advance in my studies, starting with Algebra 1 honors in sixth grade and continuing with high school math and science courses.

Because of my academic background, I was able to qualify and was selected to participate in the prestigious Naval Summer STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) program at Annapolis.”

 

Brayden2

Brayden is a Clermont native and student from Florida Virtual School Full Time, Brayden was named the overall winner of the “Florida Missing Children’s Day Statewide Essay Contest” hosted by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

The 11-year-old fifth grader was chosen for his essay entitled, “This is How I Stay Safe All Day.” As the statewide winner, he received a trophy, a check for $100 and a trip to Universal Studios.

Elli  and her figure skating partner are the 2015 Intermediate National Champions and will skate at the 2016 National Championships in St. Paul, Minnesota on Jan. 15. The 12-year-old student said she began skating at age five and trains five times a week for 7-8 hours a day. “We are very excited to show our best for the Championships. This is my dream and goal and the reason I step on the ice every day.”
