…for your dedicated service to the students, staff, and community of St. Lucie County.
On May 29, 2015, the Transportation Department bid farewell to Terry Smith, an employee with the district for 32 years, and Phil Vitale, both transportation employees. There will be big shoes to fill, as they both had a wealth of knowledge about our district. They will be greatly missed.
Upcoming fifth grades had the opportunity to attend summer camp at F. K. Sweet. Students are learning and having fun all at the same time. Students explored force and motion using balloon race cars to demonstrate the forces surrounding us. Pictured, left to right, are Jacob Andreacchio and Larry Freeman.
White City Wildcats are roaring readers! They took on the Action 100 program with amazing ambition and the results show their success. Students read at least one hour every school day and 30 minutes on non school days. The program was completed with the fidelity of steps being recorded daily and ongoing conferencing throughout the year. Congratulations to all!
