Ms. Armont (our military contact in guidance) has scheduled the next ASVAB administration 
at Ed White for March 14th!!
***Click on the ASVAB icon/picture above for a link to FREE test prep***

Every year, the Friends of 440, a charitable organization comprised of people who work in the Florida workers’ compensation system, grants scholarship funds to deserving kids whose parents are involved in the workers’ compensation system as, for example, lawyers, insurance adjusters, medical personnel who treat workers’ compensation patients, and, of course, injured workers.

            The purpose of this letter is to let you know that these scholarships are available to kids who have the talent, the financial need, and the necessary connection to the workers’ compensation system. High school seniors must have a 2.7 GPA to apply and scholarship recipients must maintain a cumulative 3.0 GPA and have at least 12 credit hours per semester, in order to remain eligible for funds.

            Applications for scholarships must be received by February 28, 2013, and the application is on our website at:

It's making us smile just to be able to offer you this fun volunteer opportunity!  We have immediate need for volunteers to assist with the "happiest 5K on the planet" - The Color Run - this February 9th!
The Color Run is a feel-good, happy, colorful event. "Color Runners" of all shapes and sizes happily go from wearing pristine white clothing, to being covered in prismatic color. At each kilometer mark, a different color of powder fills the air and covers the participants, creating an ever-increasing spectrum of color and beauty. At the finish line, the color festival kicks off and the air is filled with millions of vivid color combinations as participants get in on the color throwing fun as well. For more information, go to, follow us on Facebook 
or check out this video! 

THE COLOR RUN??? - Thank You for an AMAZING 2012 YEAR!

Packet Pickup
Thursday, February 7
10:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
If you want to run in the race, but would still like to have The Color Run volunteer experience, this volunteer opportunity is perfect for you!  It will be a day full of fun, direct communication with excited Color Runners and experienced Color Run Staff, handing out race packets to excited runners at our packet pick-up location.  Click to register
Race Day Check-In
Saturday, February 9
7:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
Be the first smiling face a new Color Runner sees on race morning!  You will check in runners and hand out shirts, color, bibs, etc.  This is a fun, fast-paced volunteer position!  Click to register
Captains of Fun
Saturday, February 9
7:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
So, you want to stay clean, but still get in on the fun?  This unique volunteer position will find you assigned to fun jobs such as Race Day Check-In, Finish Line, Star Line, Color Store, Festival Help (that would be revving up the crowd by dancing, distributing color to runners for the color throws and other fun stuff!)

Color Zone
Saturday, February 9
7:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
This is quite possibly the most fun volunteer job we've ever offered!  You will be throwing powdered color at Color Runners as they pass the 4 color stations.  Then, of course, you'll sweep up the color.  This is a colorful (that means messy) job and a high intensity job, so you'll want to wear old clothes, be over 16 years old, able to follow directions and able to lift a minimum of 25 lbs.  Act fast - these spots fill up fast!  Click to register
