COLLEGEPARKPAPER.COM JANUARY 2016 Students deliver angel cards to Florida Hospital for Children The students at Orlando Junior Academy completed their 6th annual Angel Card Service Project. The 8th-grade students were OJA Ambassadors as they made a visit to The Disney Pavilion at Florida Hospital for Children. With cards in hand, they made their special delivery to Ms. Lisa Robertson and representatives from the Child Life Department of the Children’s Hospital. With this year’s gift, OJA students have made over 1,000 cards for kids in the hospital. The students expressed how they feel like they have so much to be thankful for and it makes them feel good to know they’re helping kids by giving them something to lift their spirits. OJA Students Capture Calder’s Creative Style Art students in grades 5 through 7 were given a “commission,” to create a mobile or stabile. A stabile is what many refer to as Alexander Calder’s large, grounded sculptures that are counter points to his floating mobiles. The students worked in groups, just as professionals in an art department would, to create proposals and small scale studies of their work. The design proposals were evaluated by a team of faculty judges. Two designs were chosen to be made to-scale and then displayed during OJA’s annual Art in the Garden event on November 10. Harry Armstrong, a master engineer and former OJA parent, helped the two teams turn their ideas into a reality. Mobile designed by Nikol, Taylor and Lawryn. Stabile designed by Adonna, Allison and Elsea. Musical Highlights at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School St. Charles Borromeo students performed a Christmas Program on December 9th. Special songs were performed by Pre-K, Beginning & Concert Bands and the Voices of St. Charles while the K-2nd graders presented The Christmas Story. The concert was a wonderful way to celebrate the most joyous of seasons. Congratulations to Keila Barrera and Alexa Gillette who were selected by audition to sing in the Florida Elementary All-State Chorus. The chorus is made up of 200 students from Florida and will perform at the Florida Music Educators’ annual conference. Voices of St. Charles is the school chorus and they perform in the community. The Voices learn to read and sing two part music which create beautiful harmonies as they sing. 16 Schools family.
