Message from the Superintendent
For the health and safety of our students, families, and college and career representatives, the College and Career Fair scheduled for Thursday, August 26th at Palatka Junior Senior High School, has been cancelled. Unfortunately, due to the limited schedules of our college and career partners, we will be unable to reschedule an event for this school year. We will be exploring future alternate options for our students to participate in college and career orientation opportunities. Thank you for your understanding.

The Future of Florida Agriculture! At a recent school board meeting PCSD FFA Students were recognized for their hard work and skilled dedication to their agricultural passions. We could not be more proud of these students and want to take a moment to share their incredible accomplishments! Te'a Startz, Emily Lands and Kallie Johnson earned the highest degree offered through the Florida FFA Association which is the State FFA Degree. All three young ladies had to achieve a certain level of community service, FFA involvement and a successful Supervised Agricultural Experience Project. Te'a Startz has competed in the Prepared Public Speaking competition through FFA for the past six years. This year she was a top four finalist and placed 3rd in the state for this event. Her speech was focused around food insecurity and ways we can combat the issue of hunger in our community through practices such as urban agriculture. Tristan Pogue also was a competitor in the Florida Farm Bureau Discussion Meet contest where he was given a current agricultural issue topic and had to discuss for 30 minutes in a group of four individuals from other FFA Chapters. Tristan did a great job of being courteous to his competitors while actively engaging in solutions to our agriculture issues. Clayton Brauman was awarded the Florida FFA State Star Farmer award. This is the highest proficiency award that can be bestowed upon an FFA member. His SAE (Supervised Agricultural Experience) project started when Clayton first joined FFA his 7th grade year here at Q.I. Roberts. He started his project with five feeder cattle that was gifted to him by his grandfather. With his five head, he grew his herd into a 65 head purebred Charolais beef cattle operation in a 5 year time frame. He has also been accepted into Oklahoma State University where he will earn a bachelor's degree in Animal Science with an emphasis on business. We are beyond proud of him and his accomplishments. Samantha Harper, a sophomore, was also selected as the top 4 finalist in the Small Animal Proficiency Category. She started out with one rabbit and now breeds and operates 25 show rabbits. She was also recognized for Florida FFA Courtesy Corps during the 93rd Florida State FFA Convention. Breawna Smith, a junior, competed in the top 12 for Extemporaneous Public Speaking. In this competition, Breawna chose from a list of agricultural topics and wrote a 3-5 minute speech on that topic. She then delivered that speech to a panel of judges. She did an amazing job and represented Q.I. Roberts very well. Amber Nunamaker, an 8th grader, competed in the Florida State Creed Speaking Contest. She memorized the FFA Creed, written by E. M. Tiffany. Presented the FFA Creed with enthusiasm and poise in front of a panel of judges and then answered specific questions about the creed and what it means to her. It took lots of practice and dedication and we could not be anymore proud of her achievement. #ProudtobePCSD
