We are excited to announce the new Saint Lucie West Centennial High School HOSA officers. We welcomed the new officers in an induction ceremony and also had an ice cream social with prizes! The officers from the 2013-2014 school year had to step down and “pass the torch” to the new officers for the 2014-2015 year in a candle lighting ceremony to symbolize the changes in office from former officers to the present officers. The new President is Lindsey Harris, Vice President is Rachel Cormier, Secretary is Ximena Paz, Historian Dalia Mejia, Treasurer Nathalia Gomez, and Competition Co-chair is Jose Ortiz. We are all excited to embark on a new journey for the 2014 and 2015 school year!

Third grade students proudly display their painted birdhouses which were made during their unit on Songbirds in Mrs. Palmer’s West Gate K-8 Elementary Art classroom. Students not only made birdhouses from recycled tissue boxes and Popsicle sticks, but also learn about a particular songbird by doing research for a display poster to accompany their bird house. Students will then give the new house to the birds in their back yards.
