Students Enjoy Shared Community Resources
Students at Marathon High are enjoying a virtual tour of the shared histories of Florida and Cuba through a partnership with the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum in Key West. This year’s exhibit, Connections: Florida and Cuba, was brought to the school by media specialist Kathy Lancaster as part of Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations. Eight informational “pop up” panels provide an overview of the long history of American-Cuban relations including battles for ownership, slavery in the New World, culture, entertainment, tense neighbors, modern migration, and other topics.
 
Eighth grade social studies teacher Jeannette Maresma said, “This year’s exhibit included information especially pertinent to the lives of many of our students. One student looked at the modern migration panel about the 1980 Muriel Boatlift and told her teammates, ‘This is what my Grandpa was telling me about!’ The students also enjoyed the new interactive component, QR codes on the panels that linked the students to relevant videos.”
 
In addition to classroom tours, a special open house is planned on Tuesday, October 3, at 6:00 pm in the school media center during the School Advisory Committee meeting so parents and friends can view the exhibit.
 
This museum for Florida schools was created by the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum in Key West and funded, in part, by a grant from the State of Florida’s Bureau of Historical Resources. “We wanted to expand the reach of Florida’s maritime stories,” explained the museum’s CEO Melissa Kendrick.  “The concept of a Pop-Up Museum seemed the perfect match to reach new audiences.”
 
Marathon High will host the exhibit until October 5, a shortened tour due to the missed school days, but will have an opportunity to re-schedule the event for later in the school year. 
   
To learn more about this project, please contact school media specialist Kathy Lancaster at Kathy.lancaster@keysschools.com or 305-289-2480 x55364. For more information, go to www.melfishermuseum.org
Service Dogs Bring Joy to Marathon High Students
Marathon High students enjoyed a treat early this week as the school library was filled with dogs and kids, spread across all seven school-day periods. Ten service dogs and their handlers from throughout the Keys were invited to visit the school Monday to bring comfort to more than seventy students, many of whom needed to de-stress after the storm. Knowing the challenges many of the students faced, librarian Kathy Lancaster called upon a group of handlers who have been coming to the school library for up to five years to make a trip back to the school to help students. "The event gave the students warm hearts and a safe place to take their mind off troubling events for part of the day. It was good to hear them laugh and have fun together," Lancaster said. "Since the dogs come every year for Literacy Week, the kids know them and feel at ease from the start."
