Students in the Dunedin Elementary School
Conversation Class enjoy tossing a beach
ball while learning about different foods.
Each color section of the ball has a Post-it attached with the name of a different food category, such as vegetables, seafood, dairy product, etc. The student who catches the ball looks at the food category in the section facing him or her. The student thinks of a food that fits that category and says a sentence such as “I like broccoli” or “I don’t like shrimp.” Then the student tosses the ball to someone else. The game continues until everyone has had a turn.
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office is gauging interest in offering a one-day Sheriff’s Citizens Academy for Spanish Speakers. The proposed program would be offered this summer for Spanish-speaking residents in the county 18 years and older.
The program would be based upon the current Sheriff’s Citizens Academy (www.pscoweb.com/program-services/citizens-academy) and would be presented by Spanish speaking members of the community. Topics would include Patrol Operations, Special Operations, Defensive Tactics, Spanish for Law Enforcement Program, and a building tour. Breakfast and lunch would be provided. If interested, please contact Stacy Dennison, Community Program Specialist (firstname.lastname@example.org or (727) 582-6238).
