STUDENTS ARE IN THE SPOTLIGHT AT LEE SCHOOL BOARD MEETING

Students were in the spotlight at Tuesday night’s Lee County Board of Education meeting as groups from three local schools showed off their culinary, artistic and academic exploits.The SPROUTS club from East Lee Middle School, which groups disabled and non-disabled children together to cook and just generally interact more than they otherwise might, started this year and reported a successful pilot program."The kids had a blast,” East Lee Principal Shannon Shuey said.The students then showed a video of the club’s activities and had some of the students speak about their experiences. Later, they passed out some chocolaty treats they made to the board.From West Lee, two students came with art teacher Samantha Shonka to tell about their recent experiences at the ARTalympics, an annual statewide art contest in which students must create artwork on the spot in various assigned categories.“It’s a great way to meet people outside your county and bring students together who are passionate about art,” seventh grader Tyler Profio told the board.Later, the board honored the quiz bowl team from Lee Early College, which won the county contest and also competed in several regional and statewide competitions.
