Keeping Informed: Recent Winter Garden Educational News
- Elementary Students Send Solar Panels to Uganda - A fourth and fifth grade science teacher at Tildenville Elementary wanted her students to accomplish something big in science and created an after-school program in which students constructed portable solar generators called solar suitcases. The students, who were by far the youngest to build these mechanisms, worked in teams and were overseen by Valencia College engineering students and a professor. Their solar suitcases passed an inspection by We Care Solar and were sent to Uganda to help power schools that lack electricity
- West Orange High Makes the Holidays Specials - Four staff members at West Orange High hosted a special event during the holiday season for over 80 students with special needs called “Make Them Smile!” The children were entertained by the West Orange High cheerleaders and received presents from Santa. The children also had the opportunity to give, presenting toys to Matthew’s Hope, which would distribute them to homeless children.
- Winter Garden Teacher Retires After Four Decades - Linda Rees, who began her career in the Orange County Public Schools by running a prekindergarten program for children of migrant workers, will soon retire for the second time—this one will be permanent. She spent four decades teaching at elementary schools in Winter Garden and recalls one of her favorite moments involving a homemade incubator, chicken eggs, and sending the chicks home with her students in a time where that was okay.

Chalk Talk: Celebrating Students’ Nationalities
One way in which to celebrate students’ diversity is to design an entire social studies unit around nationalities. This focused unit, which is ideal for students in the upper elementary grades, would allow for personalization, as each student explores a specific nationality (that represents him/her) in-depth. Most students will have a background consisting of multiple nationalities, so they may choose one. If too many students choose the same country (for example, Italy, Germany, and Ireland are often popular), the teacher may encourage students to select a different country that represents their nationality. During the unit, students can explore several aspects of their nationality and heritage, including historical events, toys and games, food, geography, weather, their family tree, the country’s flag and its symbols, culture and traditions, clothing, holidays and how they are celebrated. Students can design maps that include major cities and bodies of water, create timelines with important historical events, make recipe books, and show their classmates how to play games that are unique to their country.
