EAGLE WEEKLY
SMA HIGH SCHOOL
FROM THE ASSISTANT HEAD OF SCHOOL

Dear SMA families,

I can't believe it is already February! The rest of the school year will fly by, so hold on to your hats!   

Upcoming events:
2/13 Mandatory Lacrosse Parent Meeting
2/18 President's Day (No School)
2/21 Winter Sports Banquet

As we are fully involved in second semester, please ensure that you are checking cadet grades weekly and contacting teachers with any questions or concerns. 

Student attendance is an expectation. If your cadet is absent for ANY reason, please send a note in with your cadet to the Attendance Office.   

Course selection sheets for 2019-20 school year will be coming out at the end of the month. Please take some time to go over course options with your cadet to expedite the scheduling process.  


Enjoy your weekend!

Seniors, many of you have not turned in your volunteer hours or done your on line classes. Both of these requirements must be met in order to graduate. If you have not done either of these, please do so immediately.

INTERNSHIP

Congratulations to our 3rd rotation of the SMH/SMA internship for their completion of a 12 week oncology rotation. Cadets, Holly Batchelder and Megan Schute, embarked on a journey of rotations such as surgery, genetic counseling, nursing, and trauma to gain experience and knowledge in the medical field.

The internship is coordinated by Doctor Patella here at SMA and Doctor Fiorica Chief Medical Officer at Sarasota Memorial Hospital. Also pictured is nursing oncology leaders, Barbara Poropat and Tamela Fonseca, who aided the Cadets through the rotations. Students who have taken the Careers in Medicine course at SMA are given the opportunity to participate in this internship. Once a week students go to Sarasota Memorial Hospital to shadow oncology staff. They go through rotations in multiple fields of medicine and can really see what working at a hospital is like. Students chosen have a passion for the medical fields and wish to pursue a career later in life. This sets them one step ahead of their peers. All in all, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for our SMA cadets.
           
Now a new group of students are embarking on their journey into the professional medical world. Cadets Lukas Souza, Jonathan Barroso, and Isabella Evans (pictured with Head of School, SMA-COL Bowman and teacher, Doctor Patella) were selected for the spring semester internship. We wish them the best of luck and are confident that they will excel!
