Palm Pointe Educational Research School @ Tradition would like to thank all the students and staff who donated the 850 plus teddy bears for the Teddies for Tots Drive. This project was done during Kindness Week. The bears were donated to the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Department, and Sheriff Mascara came out to Palm Pointe to pick up all the bears. These bears will be given to children in crisis throughout our community. Pictured with administration is Sheriff Mascara and several deputies in his department. Also pictured are students from Alison Perry’s fourth grade class who donated over sixty bears were there to present them all to the Sheriff.
On Monday, January 18, 2016, students and staff at St. Lucie Elementary honored the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by participating in the MLK Parade. The parade commemorates the life of civil rights leader and icon Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Students and staff participated in the Parade with signs in hand to celebrate in remembrance of his outstanding achievements and how they changed the course of history. SLE students continue to be active in their community and strive to maintain Dr. King’s vision.
