How Career & Technical Education Changed My Life

In honor of Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month, I would like to reflect on the influence CTE has had on my life – even though I didn’t realize it until a decade later. As a teenager, I wasn’t a big fan of school. Classes, homework, and way too much science! I couldn’t stand it. […]

This post was originally published on the blog of an FLVS Flex Elementary parent.  Rea is homeschooled and a part-time elementary student at Florida Virtual School. I supplement the rest of her life with educational goodness…at least I try. Rea’s school recently planned a state-wide field trip. These field trips took place in six different cities […]

February Highlights

It’s February and we think you’re simply going to LOVE all that FLVS has to offer! First, we want to remind you that Presidents’ Day is just around the corner. Please note that Monday, Feb. 20 and is a designated holiday break for all FLVS instructors and support staff.

After the long weekend, there are all kinds of opportunities that extend beyond the classroom or courses you select. Here are a few that FLVS is proud to sponsor:

Digital Learning Day 

Celebrate Digital Learning Day (DLD) with FLVS next Thursday, Feb. 23. Digital learning can involve any instructional practice that uses technology to strengthen a student’s learning experience. With digital advances ranging from educational apps to new online courses and programs, DLD is a day to keep up with the latest in online education.

Be sure to check out our social media pages on this special day next week as we feature a DLD Elementary Takeover on the FLVS Instagram page. Viewers will be able to see “a day in the life” of our very own FLVS elementary students. Connect with us to make sure you don’t miss it!

Follow us on Instagram
Another great learning opportunity will be taking place next week at FLVS! Join us throughout the week, Tuesday, Feb. 21 through Friday, Feb. 24, for the FLVS Black History Month Showcase.

Come celebrate Black History Month by recognizing the heritage, accomplishments, and culture of African Americans in the United States.

There are more than a dozen sessions to choose from, including African American Jeopardy, a Read-In, and the history behind “Hidden Figures.”

Check out the Black History Month Showcase schedule to view the full lineup and get the guest links to these amazing sessions.

If you are interested in submitting original artwork, photography, and/or writing for the Spring 2017 issue of Virge, the FLVS Literary Magazine, visit the club page for more information! The deadline to submit is Sunday, Feb. 26.

Also, if you are an FLVS Full Time senior, the FLVS Yearbook has extended the deadline to accept senior ads and portraits until Wednesday, March 1. Find more information here.

February is also Career & Technical Education (CTE®) Month. CTE courses prepare students with the technical, academic, and employment skills needed for life after high school. The courses hone critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork, and communication skills—all valuable tools needed to succeed in today’s workforce.

FLVS is proud to offer two new CTE courses: Digital Information Technology and Foundations of Programming.

We love when FLVS students and teachers get together! On Friday, Feb. 10, FLVS Flex Elementary students from across the state visited the Orlando Science Center, MOSI (the Museum of Science and Industry) in Tampa, the Museum of Discovery and Science in Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales, and the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in Tallahassee.

Students in Kindergarten through 5th grade were able to see teachers and meet classmates face-to-face before exploring exhibits and engaging in hands-on activities.

Be sure to follow our Elementary Takeover on Instagram next week to learn more about our unique FLVS Flex Elementary program!
