FLVS Corkboard: Back to School Edition

Another item from yesterday’s inbox…

August Highlights

Some of you may be new to FLVS and others have been with us through the summer, but we want to officially welcome everyone to the start of the 2017-18 school year!

This year marks our 20th anniversary, and we could not be more excited. FLVS has come a long way from our humble beginnings in 1997 when we opened our virtual doors. Now we are celebrating 20 years of innovative student learning! Check out our video, milestones, pinboard, and more here.

You can also subscribe to our blog for updates from our new 20-year series!

In recognition of this huge milestone, we invite YOU to celebrate with us!

We’d love for you to send a photo of yourself holding up a sign that says “Happy 20th” or “Congratulations on 20,” etc. by Monday, Aug. 28to socialmedia@flvs.net.

Your photo might be shared on social media or displayed during a slideshow presentation for FLVS staff. By sending your photo, you are giving permission for FLVS to use your photo; first name only will be used if on social media.

Also contributing to our excitement this year is the fact that all Florida elementary students are now able to enroll in FLVS. Thanks to modified state eligibility requirements, FLVS Flex Elementary can now serve all students in Kindergarten – 5th grade.

Families of registered elementary students can join our FLVS Flex Elementary Facebook group to help connect their education and home life. School began on Aug. 14, but there’s still time to sign up! Our students, teachers, and staff are ready for a fantastic year.

And it’s not too late for our middle and high school students to sign up for fall! Fall is a great time to get ahead, make up a credit, take a course that is not offered at school, or satisfy your online graduation requirement.

Sign Up Today
Want to connect with other FLVS students and make new friends? Club applications are now being accepted for the 2017-18 school year here.

RSVP for Club Rush
Did you know that five students from the 2017 FLVS Full Time graduating class received a scholarship? The FLVS Foundation, funded through generous gifts from the McCoy Federal Credit Union and several donors, awarded five seniors $1,000 to the college or university of his/her choice.

All entries must be mailed or submitted online and received by 5 p.m. Sept. 12. More information about the contests, including entry forms and guidelines, can be found at www.FloridaHispanicHeritage.com.

#IAMFLVS Photo Contest – COMING SOON!

Here at Florida Virtual School, we have students who take classes year round in our Flex program, but we also have students who […]
