SLWCHS Nursing Assistant Students Hold Successful Health Fair

On March 18th, Saint Lucie West Centennial High School Nursing Assistant students held their Annual Health Fair. They had a magnificent turn out. The presenters included: Project X Fitness, the Jessica Clinton MVP Foundation, 211 Teens, Treasure Coast Hospice, Children’s Home Society of Florida, Parent Teen Community Connection, Sexual Assault Assistance Program, American Red Cross, The Inner Truth Project, Students Working Against Tobacco, Teen Choices, Protect the Heart/ CareNet, and Keiser University. Keiser University had many of their educational programs attend and present a wide variety of topics for the students to learn about along with all of the other community partners that attended. The SLC Sheriff’s Department sent K9 handlers Deputy Benjamin Deblieck and Deputy Chris Hill and decoy Deputy David McKeever over with K9 Thor and K9 Goose to demonstrate their skills to the students. Their demo is always a favorite.

The goal of the Health Fair was to inform the students and help them become aware their own health, and different ways to better themselves. Each student that attended was given a passport with the names of the tables/programs that attended. Students visited each table in the gym and had to participate or get information to get their passport stamped. This encouraged each student to learn about the topic the community partners were presenting.
The CNA class did a great job planning the event. They demonstrated leadership skills and teamwork organizing and supervising this event. The class would all like to thank Keiser University for sponsoring their event and everyone that participated in it.

Northport Receives Four Star Accolades from Elks Lodge 2658

Northport Receives Four Star Accolades from Elks Lodge 2658

It is with sincere pleasure that Northport VPK-8 announce that six students from grades five through eight have won the Port Saint Lucie Elks Lodge 2658 Americanism annual essay contest. The contest this year themed “What Does the Pledge of Allegiance Mean to me?” was won by students, Annabelle Sasso, Mayra Benitez, Brandt Wrench, Kalani Walk, Jamie Kosbob and Hanza El-Azzami. The contest fell wonderfully into synch with one of the goals of the school to have as many students involved in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance on the intercom every morning as possible and making sure that the Pledge is said first thing every single morning in all classes and throughout the school. The Elks Lodge 2658 served a beautiful dinner to the students and families of the students selected with an awards ceremony following the program. Special thanks to Elks Lodge 2658 Americanism chairmen, Jack and Joan DeBel and to William La Sala Sr. the Elks Lodge Exalted Ruler for their hospitality and for their commitment to the children of Saint Lucie County and Northport VPK-8 School. The students and families were treated like kings and queens for the evening and the effort was sincerely appreciated. We are so proud of our students who were selected to represent the vision of Northport VPK-8 School.
