YOUNG ENTREPRENEUR APPEARING ON ABC’s SHARK TANK SPEAKS TO MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS STUDENTS

MONROE COUNTY, Fla. – Founder and CEO of Jack’s Stands & Marketplaces, Jack Bonneau spoke to students at Horace O’Bryant School, Key Largo School, Plantation Key School, and Sugarloaf School to offer advice and words of encouragement. 
The 11-year-old entrepreneur spoke to more than 1,600 students recently to give them advice on how to thrive in the marketplace. He shared lessons he learned from beginning his own lemonade stand and words of encouragement post Irma. The 7th-grader from STEM Lab School in Colorado said MCSD students can achieve anything with a bit of optimism, an inquisitive mind, and something they are passionate about. “No matter of their challenges, no matter their age that they can do anything they want; they just need to be curious, positive, find something they're interested in and go after it. Reach out to their parents, teachers, trusted adults and if they fail, learn from it and start again!”
Jack shared his story of going from starting his first lemonade stand to sharing ways young entrepreneurs can sell their products and ideas. He also spoke to the students about his experience on the network shows ‘Shark Tank’ and the ‘Today Show’. Jack said his story is important to share with other children, because there are very few that have stepped in to do it. “There’s not many examples of kids doing what I’m doing with both my stands & marketplaces; and there’s no one that I know that shares the stories of other young entrepreneurs to kids to inspire them and let them know that if they and I can do what we’re doing, that they can to. I also wanted to provide encouraging words resilience and a positive message with all the challenges that they are experiencing due to Hurricane Irma.”
Jack donated $500 to each of the four K-8 schools he visited. Jack said he was also fortunate to be able to provide matching funds of $500 to each school from mindSpark Learning.
Superintendent Mark Porter said Jack’s donation of his time and resources shows leadership qualities can be present in anyone, no matter their age. “Jack connected to our students in only a way that someone their age can. It is crucial for children to be able to see someone young, like themselves, actively setting goals to pursue their dreams. “

MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS TO RECAPTURE UP TO TWO WEEKS OF MISSED CLASS TIME AFTER IRMA
 
MONROE COUNTY, Fla. – Monroe County School Officials have begun the process of recapturing days lost in the classroom during Hurricane Irma.
 
Superintendent Mark Porter has announced October 16th as the first reinstated full student contact day. The 16th was initially a professional day for school staff, but the day will now serve as a full instructional day for students. Mr. Porter has also suspended all early release days for elementary and secondary school students in traditional schools until further notice.
 
Mr. Porter said students returning back to school via the staggered start dates of September 25th, September 27th, and October 2nd have missed 13, 15, and 18 instructional days respectively. “Clearly we need to restore some of this valuable instructional time we have lost. Our students deserve nothing less. ”
 
Superintendent Porter said he and his team took the two waived days from the Florida Department of Education Commissioner Pam Stewart into consideration when making the initial adjustment. Additional adjustments will be made after there has been further discussion with the school board and stakeholders. 
 
District officials will also assess the calendar for staff and payroll calendars in the near future. The last 3 of the 16 schools Sugarloaf School, Big Pine Academy, and Key West Collegiate Academy went back to the classroom Monday, October 2nd. The Monroe County School District serves approximately 8,800 students throughout the upper, middle, lower keys, and Key West.  The accredited school district consists of 10 public schools, six charter schools, as well as alternative and virtual programs. For more information about the district’s vision and mission, visit www.keysschools.com. Follow us on Facebook @MYMCSD, on Twitter @keysschools, and on Instagram @MYMCSD.  Follow the Superintendent on Twitter @supt_porter.
