Showcase at HLWatkins

Tera Hands, Choice Coordinator

The Five Carat Choice Program at Palm Beach Lakes is in full recruitment mode.  The second visit of the season was to Howell L. Watkins Middle School.  The eighth grade students were well-behaved and excited to hear about all of the programs presented by Lakes, Gardens, Suncoast, Dreyfoos, Inlet Grove, and Dwyer.

Most impressive of the day was Cadet Mikaila Astacio, who stole the show with her presentation.  She spoke about the Marine Corps JROTC at PBL.  The students hung onto her every word.  She was engagingly effective.  FCCP could not have been better represented at that showcase.  Great Job, Mikaila!

Another major highlight was seeing former students of PBL–Daniel McCray (Teacher Academy) and Monique Anders–who both now teacher at Watkins!  It is nice to witness the positive products of PBL…Go Rams!
