She was in attendance at one of the council meetings, and stood up there, and said the school could have the wiring put in for the “Welcome to Apopka” sign, when the workers were re-doing the school during construction. I even asked her about the sign later, when I saw her, and she said it was in the budget. So where is the sign? Dale, what happened to the Apopka Voice article search bar? I don’t see it, to look up older articles.

Mama Mia – top right there is a search bar. Mama Mia Reply Matthew J. Fitzpatrick recently announced he would be a candidate for Orange County School Board District 7.Fitzpatrick provided The Apopka Voice with this statement:Matthew J. Fitzpatrick“I originally went into education because I wanted to help students during the formative years of their lives. I went into administration because I figured I could help even more students by helping their teachers find success in their classrooms. I am now seeking the District 7 seat on the Orange County School Board because I believe I have the heart, the message, and the experience that can help even more students, teachers, and schools find success all across our school district. I’ve been in education for 23 years—12 as a teacher, and 11 as an administrator. I’ve been a teacher and administrator at Apopka Memorial MS, Ocoee HS, Boone HS, Apopka HS, and now Orange Technical College – Westside Campus in Winter Garden. I’ve also served for two years as the District Athletic Director over athletics and extracurricular activities at all High Schools, Middle Schools, and Elementary Schools.”“I firmly believe that it takes great teachers to make great schools. Great teachers change the lives of their students for the better. Without a doubt, as I have worked all around our county, I have come in contact with some of the best teachers that Orange County has to offer. As I talk to these great teachers, all of them lament our current teacher evaluation system that only recognized 2.4% of Orange County teachers as highly effective this past year. We can do better. We must cast aside the micromanaging methods of the Marzano Teacher Evaluation system and set our teachers free to share their passion and expertise with all of their students…doing so in a safe, academically inspiring environment that truly prepares them for their future. We must resist the shallow focus on high-stakes testing and rediscover the powerful skills of creativity, curiosity, and critical thinking. Great teachers can take our students to those higher places in education. We must take care of our teachers…especially the great ones…they are the ones who take care of our students.”Voters can meet Fitzpatrick at the CPS SportsPlex on Wednesday, May 18, from 5-7 PM. Great provof that Christine Moore needs to be voted out is that at last nights orange county public school super scholar event there was only one student from District seven. To me it shows that Christine Moore is not inspiring the administrators, the teachers and the students to reach higher academic goals. And on top of that she spent the entire first part of the presentation surfing on her phone and then left after the one student was announced who happened to be the second student announced. She did not stay for the reception after the awards ceremony for the meet and greet with the parents. To her orange county super scholars are unimportant. This shows that she is not the person to lead our students into a brighter future May 19, 2016 at 11:12 am Please enter your name here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Reply I wonder why the sign that is posted on the school grounds that proclaims our half-cent sales tax is at work, regarding the schools, did not pay for the upgraded fencing at Dream Lake School? This according to Christine Moore’s own words on her posting where she states that the upgraded fencing at the Dream Lake School, that I said looked nice, was due to the generosity of the City of Apopka. My, oh my?????……..was not that sort of needed projects, the purpose of collecting the half-cent sales tax?
