Welcome Back to School SWFL!
August 18, 2014
Summer has officially come to an end for the children of Southwest Florida. The days of staying up late and getting up even later are officially over. The start of school usually evokes different emotions for parents than children. Parents see a new school year as another opportunity for their child. Growing and learning from teachers and peers alike are all part of what make children into well-rounded adult members of our community. Watching their surroundings can also help to spark a passion for a future career path.
An education is so important in creating a sustainable community. There are many different aspects of a society that make it function from the ground up. There is a cause and effect for everything. The more residential developments that are built, the more shopping centers, schools, churches, and grocery stores will be needed. Southwest Florida is growing exponentially and it’s exciting to try and keep up.
In order for a community to grow and prosper there will always be a changing landscape. What was once a rural area is now a top of the line residential community with modern landscape. This progress all starts with a land planning company. Engineers and landscape architects are needed to design the building placement, site drainage, and landscape design. A general contractor is then contacted and starts building. The city officials are involved with the urban planning and permitting. Electrical engineers are contacted to provide power. There are too many moving parts to count!
Southwest Florida is known for growth and sustainability. Our economy is on the rise partially due to the influx of new residents. There are so many new job opportunities and corporations are flocking to our area. Not only do we have one of the best universities in the state, we have also created jobs for the graduates. Albert Einstein once said, “Never regard study as a duty, but as the enviable opportunity to learn to know the liberating influence of beauty in the realm of the spirit for your own personal joy and to the profit of the community to which your later work belongs.” The young adults graduating at the end of this school year are living this every day and are excited to become a part of our workforce. The educations they have worked so hard for will soon be put to great use for our community.
The future business leaders, teachers, computer developers, landscape architects, civil engineers, or land planners of our community are getting prepared to hit the books for another school year. The students of Southwest Florida are some of the brightest ever. Our community is invested in creating the best future possible for our children. Watching the students of our schools learn new skills and start to develop their own different passions is exciting. We are in the process of creating the future of Southwest Florida.
Back to school time can be stressful for both parents and for students. With this stress is also excitement. A new classroom or teacher can help to expand a child’s potential. To be successful one must have the tools to do so. Everything starts with an education.
