St. Lucie County School Board vice chairman Debbie Hawley, who also serves as chairman for the TCUS (Treasure Coast University Schools) board is pictured reading to kindergartners in Jenny Clancy’s class at Palm Pointe Educational Research School @ Tradition recently at the Read Across Palm Pointe event. She read the book, “There’s A Wocket in My Pocket” by Dr. Seuss. The students enjoyed the book she read and gave Mrs. Hawley one of their headbands to take home.
First and second grade students at Palm Pointe Educational Research School @ Tradition are pictured as they participate in the Circle of Hope. This project was started five years ago by a local student – a cancer survivor when he was 10 years old. Circle of Hope is a Cancer Awareness Campaign and students and staff stopped what they were doing at a specific time and had a moment of silence to honor those that had been affected by cancer. Students and staff also donated $1.00 to wear purple with the proceeds going to Standup2cancer.
Bayshore Elementary School held its first Community Resource Night. The mission of Community Resource Night was to provide families with access to the many services and resources that St. Lucie County has to offer. Pictured is Mindi Fetterman from the Roundtable of St. Lucie County talking to students and families about Kids at Hope.
Bayshore Elementary School’s display in the St. Lucie County Fair earned third place in the fair’s elementary division. Bayshore Elementary students used primary sources to assist them in recreating pictures of St. Lucie County’s past and present. Students also used their creativity to demonstrate inventions of the future.
