Home' Nonahood News : NONA 060116 Contents Knight Writers of Lake Nona
Middle School Publish Book
We are excited to announce that
the Knight Writers of Lake Nona Mid-
dle School have published their first
book, Entwined, on Amazon! The book
is comprised of short stories and poetry
that reflect the creativity, emotions, and
ideas of our students. Additionally, the
book includes poetry in Spanish writ-
ten by our Advanced Placement Span-
ish students. The artwork inside is cre-
ated exclusively by Lake Nona students.
Students on our campus are thor-
oughly enjoying the writings and illus-
trations. Students remark that they can
“relate to the stories and poems of their
peers.” They comment that the authors
share the same feelings and perspec-
tives as they do. Entwined brings an en-
ergy to our students that inspires them
to reach for their own dreams.
Entwined can be purchased at Lake
Nona Middle School for only $5 or on
Amazon.com for just $6.99 (search for
Entwined by Lake Nona Middle School).
In conjunction with Lake Nona Mid-

Lake Nona High School Hosts
Fourth and Final Blood Drive of
The School Year
Tuesday, May 3, was the fourth and
final blood drive of the school year.
Hope’s View was able to organize four
blood drives this year, more than LNHS
has ever hosted. More than 100 students
volunteered that day to get on the Big
Red Bus–there were actually three bus-
es–and give the gift of life.
Blood drives are important in our
Every two seconds someone in the
U.S. needs blood.
Approximately 36,000 units of red
blood cells are needed every day in
Nearly 7,000 units of platelets and 10,000 units of plasma are needed daily in
Hope’s View will continue to organize and host the blood drives at Lake Nona
High School as one part of serving our community. The other project the members
are devoted to is creating craft bags for hospitalized children. Once every month, the
members create a simple craft project, construct all the “parts,” and put them into
individual bags. The craft bags are donated to the Child Life Department at Nemours
Children’s Hospital to use with their patients.
Daut Baterbiev Receives Orange
County Public Schools’ Spirit of
On Wednesday, May 4, Daut Bater-
biev, a senior at Lake Nona High School,
received a Spirit of Excellence award
from OCPS. This award is given to stu-
dents who speak English as a second
language and have demonstrated aca-
demic excellence, perseverance and
exemplary role model qualities. Daut
moved to the U.S. from Russia less
than two years ago. In that time, he has
worked very hard to acquire the neces-
sary English skills to perform well aca-
demically and interact socially with his
peers. In the last two years, Daut came
to every tutoring session I offered and
read countless books at home. His mom
told me he would often sacrifice sleep to
read more. His hard work paid off when he received the results that he passed the
FCAT and would be graduating on time with his classmates. This reading gradua-
tion requirement is often extra challenging for second-language speakers. It has
been a true pleasure to teach a young man with such a strong work ethic and
fierce drive to achieve his goals. Daut will be honored again at our senior awards
night, Monday, May 16, at 6 p.m. in the LNHS auditorium.
