Floresta Elementary School students participate in PBS activity

On the last day of school prior to winter break, Floresta Elementary School students participated in the Positive Behavior Support Chance Opportunities to Win.  Students used their Dolphin Dollars to purchase opportunities to win a variety of great prizes to reinforce and reward students for making good choices. Floresta t-shirts, class pizza parties, lunch with a friend on stage, and tickets to Lion Country Safari, Chuck E. Cheese, and Super-Play, were just a sampling of the items that were donated and awarded to the following student winners: Mallory Sweitzer, Alon Batista, Ella Nunnaly, Tyler Parchment, Austin Fowler, Dylan Shaver, Anthony Martins, Keeshawn Robinson, Lena Shingeldecker, Abigail Coker, Jonathan Nunez, Celine Leger, Angie Denvall, Xavier Long, Taylor Lovejoy, Shellby Garron, Yaisa Valencia-Argueta, Bella Gadio, and Javon Perkins. From our Floresta family to yours, “Have a wonderful, safe, and restful Holiday Season!”

Osceola Magnet School adopts GCELA

A third grade class at Osceola Magnet School in Vero Beach adopted HeatherNesbitt’s first grade classroom for a “give back” Christmas.  The Osceola students all wrote two letters, wrapped a book and tied a holiday pencil on each package. It was truly amazing to watch the students open their gifts, read their letters and get really excited about a new book!  As part of a writing lesson, GCELA students wrote thank you letters to the Osceola Magnet School students.

Port St. Lucie High Jaguar cadets achieve greatness

The Port St. Lucie High School Jaguar Battalion held its second quarter Outstanding Cadet Board recently. The Outstanding Cadet Board is a competition between cadets on two different levels. One level contains junior cadets, and the other is comprised of the program’s NCO corps. Throughout the competition, the cadets are asked various questions pertaining to JROTC, the Army, the JROTC curriculum, and current events. The winners of the board were cadet Private First Class Zhane Simmonds, pictured right, and cadet Sergeant Arlene Mabry. Congratulations to the two cadets, and good luck to cadets during the third Outstanding Cadet Board!
