Port St. Lucie High Jaguar battalion retires flags

The Port Saint Lucie High School JROTC conducted a Flag Retirement Ceremony as its annual Service Learning Project. The service learning is similar to community service, but the difference between the two is that after the service learning project, a reflection is done. This year, the Jaguar Battalion retired unserviceable flags. Assistant Superintendent Dr. Mark Rendell attended this ceremony, his first ceremony at a retirement of the flags. He was very
impressed at how the ceremony was conducted. It was a beautiful ceremony and it truly was a heart-warming sight to see. All the cadets who participated in this event were honored to be able to be a part of something as wonderful as that
ceremony. P9ictured, from left, cadet Staff Sergeant John Hunter, cadet Private First Class Edwin Oquendo, cadet Private First Class Anson Rivera, and to the far left in the back holding the flag is cadet Staff Sergeant Jaffery Murankus.

Palm Pointe students enjoy math challenge

Palm Pointe students enjoy math challenge

Seventh grade students in Meredith Andrus’ math class at Palm Pointe Educational Research School @ Tradition enjoyed an interactive math challenge, Who Am I?  Students were given a problem and placed the index card on their forehead without looking at it.  Given an answer bank, students solved and matched the problems of their classmates to the answers.  After solving all their classmates’ answers, the one answer left would be the answer to their own question.  Without ever seeing their own question, students were able to answer their own question and find out who they were.  The students enjoyed this fun, learning lesson! Pictured, back, are Erick Laguer, left, and Jordyn Resendez. In front are Braedon Valenti, left, and Abraham Alcolea.
