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.

The Shorecrest curriculum evolves with the needs and interests of students and the skill and expertise of the faculty. A prime example is a new social studies elective entitled “The Theory and Practice of Teaching and Learning.”
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?”
Shorecrest parents Matt Frey and Patrick Lamb organize casual, low key Dad's Nights Out during the school year. This is open to fathers of Shorecrest students all grade levels. No need to RSVP, just show up and enjoy.
