Living in the present is not always easy. There is no doubt about who is fully present when engaged in a conversation, a meeting, a game... Practicing total engagement in a world that encourages multi-tasking can be a challenge. Further, focusing while different technologies are sending reminders and prompts that someone else wants our attention can be difficult.
Congratulations to Troupe 3140 on an extraordinary showing at District Thespians where 32 schools and over 800 students competed this weekend. Their one-act play, “Radium Girls,” won a Superior rating and was selected to compete at Florida State Thespians, the largest and most competitive festival in the nation.
Today’s Contributing Chargers are Evan and Quan Tran. Last year as new parents to Shorecrest, Evan and Quan understood becoming Chargers would be a life changing experience, which led them to make an anonymous gift to Transform. At the time, they wanted their gift to represent why their family was giving instead of who was giving. A year later, they were left wondering, “How can we inspire others to support this campaign, too?”
On any list of favorite or most impactful Shorecrest faculty members, David Field is certain to be there. Mr. Field retired in 2015, after 25 years of teaching at SPS. For many of our beloved faculty members, their impact and ability to engage, inspire and lead is a testament to their care for their students and their dedication to their profession.
