Boca Raton — The Miami Dolphins organization has recognized 13 winning schools from among Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Monroe and Martin counties as South Florida schools were challenged to get “back to football.”
Schools were encouraged to send in creative and collaborative spirit pieces to show their Dolphins pride. One such school, Sunrise Park Elementary in Boca Raton, developed a slogan entitled “Messages in a Bottle” to become one of the finalists, as faculty, staff and students all took the time to write inspiring messages to the football team.
The final product was created and proudly displayed to garnish schoolwide and community support. Judy Simon, an art teacher at the school, helped bring the “SPES Messages in a Bottle” graphic to life.
Sunrise Park was recognized as students participated in the Dolphins Junior Training camp, a day of fun, fitness, and goal setting, and will be awarded a $1,000 grant for their physical education department.
Marcela Mendoza, physical education teacher at Sunrise Park Elementary, stated “The Dolphins Junior Training Camp was a great way for the students to actively experience football. It was a day of physical fitness at its best.”
