RUBIO-SPONSORED NASA BILL SIGNED INTO LAW

Out2martincounty.com

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) visited the White House today where he welcomed President Trump’s signing of the “‎National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Transition Authorization Act” ‎(S. 442), a bill Rubio and six other senators introduced in February. ‎The new law will provide stability for NASA to sustain and build upon existing national space investments designed to advance space exploration and science.

“This law will promote innovation, support NASA’s Space Launch System and Orion programs, improve collaboration between the agency and commercial space sector, and benefit thousands of workers across Florida, particularly at Cape Canaveral and Kennedy Space Center,” said Rubio. “Florida continues to play a leading role in our nation’s space program, and I was proud to stand by President Trump’s side as he signed our bill into law.”

ASTRONOMY PICTURE OF THE DAY

 

Bright Spiral Galaxy M81

Explanation: One of the brightest galaxies in planet Earth’s sky is similar in size to our Milky Way Galaxy: big, beautiful M81. This grand spiral galaxy can be found toward the northern constellation of the Great Bear (Ursa Major). This superbly detailed view reveals M81’s bright yellow nucleus, blue spiral arms, and sweeping cosmic dust lanes with a scale comparable to the Milky Way. Hinting at a disorderly past, a remarkable dust lane actually runs straight through the disk, to the left of the galactic center, contrary to M81’s other prominent spiral features. The errant dust lane may be the lingering result of a close encounter between M81 and its smaller companion galaxy, M82. Scrutiny of variable stars in M81 has yielded one of the best determined distances for an external galaxy — 11.8 million light-years.

Warfield Elementary Awarded the Area’s First Dr. Ben Carson Reading Room

Out2News.com

Stuart, FL – Through the generosity of a private donation, Martin County School District is proud to announce the grand opening of Martin County’s first Dr. Ben Carson Reading Room at Warfield Elementary.

The grand opening celebration will occur on Friday, September 8, which includes an all-school assembly at 12:45 p.m. and the official ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1:30 p.m. in the school’s Media Center.

The creation of this room, through a donation by Mrs. Enid Cheatham, will complement the school’s focus on literacy and benefit the entire school community. The Dr. Ben Carson Reading Project is an initiative of the Carson Scholars Fund. The Carson Scholars Fund was founded by now retired, world-renowned, pediatric neurosurgeon and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Ben Carson and his wife, Lacena ‘Candy’ Carson.

The student-selected theme of Warfield’s Reading Room is, ‘The Ocean’. The room is filled with child friendly, ocean-like furniture and objects to excite and motivate children to read. Each student was asked to select his/her favorite book which was included with hundreds of other books for students to explore from a variety of authors, topics and genres. The cozy environment encourages students and their families to recognize the importance of everyday independent leisure reading.

“The Martin County School District is grateful to Mrs. Cheatham for providing the Dr. Ben Carson Reading Room for our students at Warfield Elementary,” says Laurie J. Gaylord, Superintendent of Schools. “This room offers a learning environment that will encourage our children and families to fall in love with reading.”

As a child, Ben Carson had a dream of becoming a physician. Growing up in a single parent home with dire poverty, poor grades, a horrible temper and low self-esteem appeared to preclude the realization of that dream until his mother, with only a third grade education, challenged her sons to strive for excellence. Dr. Ben Carson credits reading as being a catalyst to his success.

Jensen Beach Elementary Playground’s Shade Structure Installation Underway

Out2News.com

Jensen Beach -The Jensen Beach Community Playground is about to get a lot “cooler”! Martin County is happy to announce the installation of a shade structure covering the playground is scheduled to start on Monday, July 24, 2017.

The project is possible thanks to a generous donation of $32,000 from the Jensen Beach Community Playground Committee to assist with the funding for the shade structure. “This project ties into one of the Martin County Parks and Recreation Master Plan goals. The Jensen Beach Community Playground Committee has been extremely supportive of our efforts to improve this community asset for years now; this playground is a clear example of the outstanding results that can be accomplished thanks to these type of partnerships” said Kevin Abbate, Martin County Parks and Recreation Director.

Due to construction work, the playground will be closed from Monday, July 24, 2017 until Monday, August 14, 2017 when it is scheduled to reopen for all to enjoy. The new addition will make the park more comfortable during the summer months, as well as provide needed sun protection year-round.

Thanks again to the Jensen Beach Community Playground Committee, those who participate in the Race for the Playground, and community donors for helping us make Martin County Parks the best of the best! #LoveMCParks

MARTIN COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT BOARD APPROVES NEW SCHOOL START TIME FOR 11 ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

Out2News.com

Stuart, FL – The Martin County School District Board approved a new start time for 11 elementary schools effective on the first day of school, Tuesday, August 15th. All elementary schools, excluding Port Salerno Elementary, will begin at 7:30am. This is a ten minute change from previous years when the school day began at 7:40am.

With the recent signing of House Bill 7069 which now requires 20 minutes of daily recess in addition to the 30 minutes of physical activity offered daily, instructional time in core content areas would be impacted. Elementary principals asked to start the school day 10 minutes early and the School Board agreed that adding 10 minutes to the beginning of the school day would best mitigate the negative impact on instruction.

“A loss of 20 minutes equates to losing 60 hours of instructional time during the school year,” says Laurie J. Gaylord, Superintendent. “Our principals requested to cut that time in half and we feel this is the best decision to least impact instruction for our students.”

The change in start time will not affect bus schedules and will have the least impact on families. Car line and the gates for bike riders and walkers will be open 10 minutes earlier.

SPAM Robotics Concludes Highly Successful Season

Out2News.com

Stuart, FL – On Friday, May 12, SPAM Robotics concluded its 20th year with a celebratory banquet at Martin County High School. Team members celebrated many successes, achievements and awards the team had earned this year.

S.P.A.M. was founded in 1998 by professional engineers and educators from South Fork High School, Pratt & Whitney and Martin County High School (hence, S.P.A.M.). Through the years, the Treasure Coast community has grown and more high schools were added: Jensen Beach High School, Clark Advanced Learning Center, and home schooled students. Today, S.P.A.M. stands for Speed, Power & Maneuverability, and the basis upon which team members build every robot. S.P.A.M. has attended many events sponsored by FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition in Science and Technology). Specifically, students compete annually at the FIRST Robotics Competitions (FRC) regional events throughout the Southeast and the FRC World Championships. While the team has received numerous awards each year, including the ultimate achievement of becoming FRC World Champions in 2012, this year was an exceptional one for S.P.A.M.

Following a six week “build season” in January and February, 2017, where the team built its robot (aptly named “Buzz LightGear”), S.P.A.M. competed in the FRC Orlando Regional March 9-11. In Orlando, the team received the Industrial Design Award, underwritten by General Motors. This award celebrates form and function in an efficiently designed machine that effectively addresses the game challenge. After forming an alliance with a team from the Netherlands (!), S.P.A.M. won the overall Regional Competition. The buzz began in the international robotics community that a team from Martin County, FL was the one to either form an alliance with (as part of the rules of the competitions) or try to beat at the International Competition.

The Rocket City Regional, held in Huntsville, Alabama arrived two weeks later. Again, students initially made their mark by winning the Engineering Inspiration Award at Rocket City. This award celebrates outstanding success in advancing respect and appreciation for engineering within a team’s community. In presenting this award to us, the judges wrote, “Inspiring others to respect science and technology requires passion, knowledge and commitment. This team has excelled at outreach in their own schools and throughout their area, not just reaching out, but teaching younger students, the community and peers.” Not resting on its laurels, S.P.A.M. went on to win the overall Rocket City Regional competition, furthering the attention and the stakes in the international robotics community. In fact, NASA committed $5,000 to underwrite the team’s registration at the upcoming International Competition.

S.P.A.M students used all of the skills they had learned during their build season as they entered the FRC World Championship, held in Houston, Texas in April. These skills included scouting out the competition to both form alliances, a necessary component to winning matches, as well as gathering intelligence on other teams to form strategies to determine how best to use their resources, robotic driving skills and the function capabilities of the robot. In a nail-biting finish, S.P.A.M. completed its qualification matches in 7th place and finished in 2nd place in the Newton Division. The team also finished in the top 3 for the Industrial Safety Awards, sponsored by Underwriters Laboratories. Additionally, S.P.A.M. earned the Team Spirit Award sponsored by FCA Foundation for its division. The award celebrates extraordinary enthusiasm and spirit through exceptional partnership and teamwork furthering the objectives of FIRST.

S.P.A.M.’s mission is to inspire high school students to be science, technology and engineering leaders by engaging them in a mentor-based program where we design, fabricate, build, program, and test a robot for the FIRST® Robotics Competition. Founded by esteemed inventor Dean Kamen and distinguished MIT professor emeritus Woodie Flowers, FIRST was created to inspire students to be science and technology leaders and foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication and leadership.

S.P.A.M. is open to all students in the public high schools of Martin County, and has a representative of each school as one of its many mentors. It is able to sustain its program though the generous donations and sponsorships of local and national businesses, organizations and individuals. For more information on how you and/or your student can become involved with S.P.A.M, please go to https://www.spamrobotics.com to learn more.

Stuart, FL – The Summer Food Service Program of the Martin County School District ensures that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. The District will provide free meals to children during the months of May, June, July and August 2017. This summer, meals will be served at several school locations for any child under the age of 18.

Stuart — The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony’s spring program set focus on major orchestral compositions directly inspired by individual visual artworks and art forms. Taking heed of the inspirational flow between visual arts and music this performance explores the personal reactions of the featured composers to artistic expressions of others. Their music became the “reveal” of what they see, hear, or feel.

Concerts are scheduled at three venues, which include the Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens, the Lyric Theatre in Stuart last evening, and the Church of the Good Shepherd in Tequesta on Monday, April 24th. Final concert begins at 7PM.  Tickets for the concert at the Church of the Good Shepherd may be purchased by calling (561) 746 4674.

The featured composers, Debussy, Respighi, and Mussorgsky provide tender emotional and intellectual inspiration to their audiences through their classic works, Fetes, Trittico Botticelliano, and Pictures At An Exhibition, respectively. Also included is a performance of Haydn’s Cello Concerto by our 2017 Concerto Competition winner, cellist Erick Lora.

Music conductors for the evening are Dr. John Enyart, Thomas Servinsky and Benjamin Enyart. The orchestra includes exceptionally talented young musicians from Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, and Palm Beach counties.

Educating to preserve, create, and celebrate our musical heritage, the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony continues to serve our community as one of its finest musical arts organizations for young musicians and orchestra audiences since 1987. The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony is a non-profit, 501(c) (3) organization.

S.P.A.M. Robotics Prepares for World Championships

Out2News.com

STUART—S.P.A.M. Robotics, the local high school FIRST Robotics team, is preparing to compete at the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) FIRST Championships to be held April 19-22 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX.

Fresh off their victories at the FRC Orlando Regional at University of Central Florida on March 9-11 and the FRC Rocket City Regional in Huntsville, AL on March 23-24, the team of 74 high school students and their teachers, coaches and mentors are making final preparations for Championships.

This year’s challenge, called FIRST STEAMWORKSSM, surrounds a theme where two adventure clubs from an era in which technology relied on steam power prepare their airships for the ultimate long distance race. Each three-team alliance scores points in three ways: by collecting fuel, represented by small yellow balls, and scoring them in a low or high goal in a boiler; by retrieving and delivering gears to their airship in order to start their rotors; and by boarding the airship by climbing a rope. The alliance with the highest score wins the match.

At their season Kickoff in January, S.P.A.M. watched a worldwide reveal where teams were shown the FIRST STEAMWORKS game field and challenge details for the first time, and received a Kit of Parts made up of motors, batteries, control system components, construction materials, and a mix of additional automation components – with limited instructions. Working with adult Mentors, students have six weeks to design, build, program, and test their robots to meet the season’s engineering challenge.

“The time and resource constraints FIRST implements really challenge us to work together and collaborate on a highly professional level,” said Shantanu Jakhete, S.P.A.M. Vice-Captain and Pit Crew leader. “In fact, you could compare S.P.A.M. to a mix between an established and organized engineering company and an entrepreneurial start-up because of our unique combination of proven designs and crazy new ideas. As a result, our technical teams have the most talented, creative and best problem-solving students you will find in Martin County. It’s very motivating to work alongside a team that is constantly pushing the boundaries of our robot performance.”

S.P.A.M. was recognized with judges’ awards at each of their regional competitions. At the FRC Orlando Regional, the judges presented the team with the Industrial Design Award sponsored by General Motors. This award celebrates form and function in an efficiently designed machine that effectively addresses the game challenge. At the FRC Rocket City Regional, the team was awarded the Engineering Inspiration Award which celebrates outstanding success in advancing respect and appreciation for engineering within a team’s community. This coveted award comes with an added benefit where NASA sponsors the $5,000 registration fee at the 2017 FIRST Championship.

“It’s been an exciting season so far but there’s nothing like the world championships,” said Tyler Woods, team Captain and S.P.A.M.’s lead robot driver for the second year. “To win a regional is an achievement in itself. But every team steps up their game at Championships. As the driver, I depend on everyone to bring their A game. I need our scouting team gathering data on the other robots. I need a coach and the rest of the drive team on the field executing our game plan. I need a pit crew back in the pits ready to fix any mechanical issues or make code adjustments. It’s such a team effort. It’s exciting to see it all come together.”

S.P.A.M., which stands for Speed, Power & Maneuverability (www.spamrobotics.com), is made up of high school students from Jensen Beach High School, Martin County High School, South Fork High School, Clark Advanced Learning Center and home schools. This year the team is celebrating 20 years of building robots while encouraging the next generation of science, technology and engineering leaders.

FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, www.firstinspires.org ) was founded in 1989 by accomplished inventor Dean Kamen to inspire an appreciation of science and technology in young people. Based in Manchester, N.H., FIRST designs accessible, innovative programs to build self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills while motivating young people to pursue opportunities in science, technology, and engineering.

***Book Review***

Don’t Be That KID!

Out2News.com

 

 

 

 

“Lois McGuire has created an engaging way through rhymes for elementary-age children to talk about and then address positive character behaviors. I purchased a Don’t Be That KID! At School book for each of my grandchildren and a resource guide for their parents.” Bill P., Grandfather of 5

“The Don’t Be That KID! At School Resource Guide provides my teachers with a year-long plan that supports their students in engaging in positive behaviors and social interactions. Both the book and the resource guide are invaluable tools to help our students feel confident and our classrooms feel secure.” Lauren B., Principal.

These are just two testimonials concerning Lois McGuire’s new character education books: Don’t Be That KID! At School and the Don’t Be That KID! At School Resource Guide. Dr. McGuire feels that building positive character values is as important as teaching core subject areas. She says, “What good is being an ‘A’ student if you aren’t an ‘A’ person? Parents and teachers need to work together to infuse the key character education principles into their children’s daily lives. Make no mistake about it, character in not just innate – it can be taught and learned which is why I wrote Don’t Be That KID! At School.”

Don’t Be That KID! At School is about a little goat who misbehaves at school but ultimately learns his lesson. Each scene provides an opportunity to discuss character building values, such as honesty, consideration, responsibility and respect. The “Don’t Be That KID! At School Resource Guide accompanies the book but can be used independently by teachers and parents to help reinforce desired behaviors and character education principles. Although separated into appropriate activities for grades K-1, 2-3 and 4-5, the Guide can easily be adapted for all ages and abilities.

Learn more about Don’t Be That KID! At School and the Don’t Be That KID! At School Resource Guide by going to the website: dontbethatkid.net Both books can be purchased through the website or through Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble .com.

Local Cellist Performs Winning Concerto
For The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony

Out2News.com

Little did Erick Lora and his family realize when their 10 year old son began playing the cello, that it would lead him into a broader music career, joining the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony and being selected as its 2017 Concerto Competition winner for the symphony’s April concerts.

Lora has been with the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony since 2014 and was selected to perform with the Academy Orchestra, the mentoring orchestra for the Youth Symphony. He won first place in the Florida Association of Christian Colleges & Schools (FACCS) state competition for his string solo several times and was chosen to perform on National Public Radio’s Young Musician Spotlight, hosted by public radio station WQCS / 88.9 FM. The young cellist also performs regularly with the Indian River Pops Orchestra.

The three concerts featuring the music of Modest Mussorgsky and his Pictures At An Exhibition will be available on the Treasure Coast and Palm Beach County. They include performances at the Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens on April 10th, the Lyric Theatre on April 17th in Stuart and on April 24th at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Tequesta. All shows are at 7 p.m. Tickets are available through each Box Office venue.

Now at 17 years old, Erick Lora will be performing in the three concerts, plus presenting his award-winning Concerto Competition selection, Haydn’s Cello Concerto. Other music selections will include Debussy’s Fetes from The Three Nocturnes, Respighi’s Trittico Botticelliano and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, the theme of the evening concerts.

Robotics FIRST Lego League Qualifying Tournament

Out2News.com

The Education Foundation of Martin County, in partnership with MCSD Extended Day, is so proud to be the only school district to have a robotics team at each of our elementary and middle schools!

This program allows us to introduce tomorrow’s innovators to imaginative thinking and teamwork. Since August, our 17 teams have been hard at work sharpening their 21st century skills in preparation for competition.

Guided by adult coaches, FIRST LEGO League teams research a real-world problem and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, and program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology, then compete on a table-top playing field. It all adds up to tons of fun while they learn to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), plus a big dose of imagination, to solve a problem.

This past weekend, all of our teams participated in the SPAM Robotics FIRST Lego League Qualifying Tournament at South Fork High School in an effort to earn a bid to the Florida-South Regional Championship Tournament in February.

Robotics FIRST Lego League Qualifying Tournament

Out2News.com

The Education Foundation of Martin County, in partnership with MCSD Extended Day, is so proud to be the only school district to have a robotics team at each of our elementary and middle schools!

This program allows us to introduce tomorrow’s innovators to imaginative thinking and teamwork. Since August, our 17 teams have been hard at work sharpening their 21st century skills in preparation for competition.

Guided by adult coaches, FIRST LEGO League teams research a real-world problem and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, and program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology, then compete on a table-top playing field. It all adds up to tons of fun while they learn to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), plus a big dose of imagination, to solve a problem.

This past weekend, all of our teams participated in the SPAM Robotics FIRST Lego League Qualifying Tournament at South Fork High School in an effort to earn a bid to the Florida-South Regional Championship Tournament in February.

Here are the results…Congratulations!

Robotics FIRST Lego League Qualifying Tournament

Out2News.com

The Education Foundation of Martin County, in partnership with MCSD Extended Day, is so proud to be the only school district to have a robotics team at each of our elementary and middle schools!

This program allows us to introduce tomorrow’s innovators to imaginative thinking and teamwork. Since August, our 17 teams have been hard at work sharpening their 21st century skills in preparation for competition.

Guided by adult coaches, FIRST LEGO League teams research a real-world problem and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, and program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology, then compete on a table-top playing field. It all adds up to tons of fun while they learn to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), plus a big dose of imagination, to solve a problem.

This past weekend, all of our teams participated in the SPAM Robotics FIRST Lego League Qualifying Tournament at South Fork High School in an effort to earn a bid to the Florida-South Regional Championship Tournament in February.

Here are the results…Congratulations!

Treasure Coast Youth Symphony Performs
The Musical Art of the Three B’s Plus One

Out2News.com

Stuart — What is classical music? Music that expresses life, truth, beauty, reveals facets of the human condition, inspires emotional responses, and continues to be relevant by becoming part of the history of ideas is classic or “classical” music. In a sense, its persistent relevance makes it quite contemporary.

This program by the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony highlights and explores important and well-loved pieces by Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, and Berlioz.

Looking back into history and lists of composers in terms of importance, most musicologists agree that Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms were the most influential composers of all time. Perhaps Mozart, Schubert and many others should be in the mix, but these three are the ones whose vision changed the musical style of their day and moved the development of music further to where we are today. For our concert, because the last composer of the three, Brahms, is usually considered in a tie with French composer, Hector Berlioz, we include him within our catch phrase, The Musical Art of the Three Bs Plus One.

The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony provides challenging experiences in orchestral and individual performance for student musicians to broaden technical skills and artistic expression, to instill professionalism, and to enhance enjoyment of their musical talents individually and for their audiences.

Members of the orchestra may choose to compete in the annual Concerto Competition. The winner of this competition has the privilege of performing his or her piece with the orchestra during the spring concert season.

Each year the orchestra awards scholarships and grants to several of its young musicians. The scholarships are used by orchestra members to continue music education during a summer music program, to enter a college level musical curriculum in the fall, to obtain private lessons from professionals, or to assist in the purchase of musical instruments.

During its 27-year history, the orchestra alumni have been selected for highly-competitive auditions to attend major conservatories and university programs. Students often opt to continue their music studies in college, in addition to other academic majors.

The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization and is composed of the most talented student musicians from Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and northern Palm Beach counties. The conductors of the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony are Dr. John Enyart, Ben Enyart and Thomas Servinsky. The orchestra is funded by performance proceeds, orchestra membership fees and private and corporate support.

READING TO THE KIDS

Out2News.com

In photo: Mary Ellen Costa reading to the preschoolers at the Gertrude Walden Center

Stuart — The Woman’s Club of Stuart began 103 years ago, when Stuart was a new town. The club comprises women united by a dedication to community improvement through volunteer service.

Mary Ellen Costa, chair of the Education Committee of the Woman’s Club of Stuart, reads to preschoolers every week at the Gertrude Walden Day Care Center, 601 SE Lake Street in Stuart. Literacy has always been an important focus of the Woman’s Club, which created and operated for 40 years the first public library in Stuart.

Funds raised by the Woman’s Club provide college scholarships for senior girls at Martin County public high schools. This year, $26,000 in scholarships were awarded, and during the past six years, $96,000 has been awarded to 23 high school students.

Art Reflection By Mimi McCallum

Out2martincounty.com

Through my art I aspire to capture moments in time that relate to memories that touch our hearts. I aspire to create images of objects, places and figures with pleasing shapes and energetic color.

My “people stories” are paintings including figure in them. This is a subject I enjoy painting. My people are All People and an experience we can share. The “At the Beach” series provides glimpses of sensual and relaxing times that are the beach. The beach offers a refuge from the routine and mundane. The figures enjoy the warm sun, the wind blowing their hair, umbrellas, towels, sand in their toes and the beauty of the ocean.

“Magic and Make Believe”

Out2News.com

Stuart – John Enyart, Benjamin Enyart and Thomas Servinsky each conducted music associated with magic and make-believe .

Is the make-believe world of childhood merely capricious dream and illusion? Or is it a vision of the power of imagination and invention?

Certainly the creative genius of the composers behind the pieces in this concert is not fiction. From Howard Shore’s Two Towers from the Lord of the Rings, Dvorak’s Noonday Witch, Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain, Prokofiev’s Lt. Kije, and the Berceuse and Finale of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite, these familiar and very real pieces continue to enchant, captivate and inspire people throughout our planet.

This evenings concert also featured a performance by the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony’s 2016 Concerto Competition Winner, violinist Brook Gunter.

The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony provides challenging experiences in orchestral and individual performance for student musicians to broaden technical skills and artistic expression, to instill professionalism, and to enhance enjoyment of their musical talents individually and for their audiences.

Treasure Coast Music Teachers Association

To Support Helping People Succeed Programs

Out2News.com

Jensen Beach — The Treasure Coast Music Teachers Association and Helping People Succeed celebrated their 2014 “Music-Thon”, set for Saturday at Treasure Coast Square in Jensen Beach.

Appearing all-day at the entrance to Macy’s at the north end of the mall, Treasure Coast area music students performed LIVE, on stage. The musicians included pianists, vocalists, guitarists, violins, violas, cellists and more.

WPEC-CBS Channel 12 anchor Liz Quirantes is honorary chair for the Music-Thon. She is an award-winning news anchor, known for supporting causes for children. She is the recipient of a Media Advocate Award from Florida’s Children First and works closely with the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County.

Making her final appearance as a student, at the annual event was local vocal prodigy Savannah Webber. Maybe we will see her as an alum opera etic “Empressario” in the future performing for us.

Each year, the Treasure Coast Music Teachers Association designates a local non-profit organization to benefit from community donations. Helping People Succeed was selected this year for its many programs available to 4,500 families served in Martin, St. Lucie and Okeechobee counties.

Among the various classes for children from newborns to 5 years old is the Music & Movement program offered in Martin and St. Lucie counties. Paula Barnes, the recipient of the Macaroni Kid Gold Daisy Award, is the coordinator for children and their families.
