Kindergartners are inspired writers at Allapattah Flats K8

Reading Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer  inspired Nanette Serrano’s kindergarten class to put on their thinking caps and write about Rudolph. Students were excited to write about a reindeer that was different but broke down barriers to become a hero. The students did a great job of expressing their feelings about what they liked best. They shared their writings with their classroom peers and displayed them on the bulletin board for everyone to see. Pictured is inspired writer, Tyronique Johnson.

Allapattah Flats kindergartners enjoy seasons reading

 Kindergarten students are very eager and motivated to celebrate the winter season. They each labeled a snowflake with a book they are reading from the school library. It is fun to see the enthusiasm as they read books and share them with the class. Students proudly display the number of books they read on the kindergarten hallway bulletin board.

Fairlawn Elementary food drive benefits local pantry

As part of their continuing outreach to members of the St. Lucie County community, Fairlawn Elementary Student Council sponsored a food drive to benefit the Treasure Coast Food Bank.  In this amazing effort, Fairlawn students, staff, and families collected over 1,700 pounds of food.  Without a doubt, many local families will benefit from this gracious outpouring.  Pictured, from left, are Luke White, Ava Ingersoll, Ansley Browning, and Daisy Chavarria.
