The Stars Came Out at Parkway

The Stars Came Out at Parkway

In an effort to better engage families this school year, Parkway Elementary, of St. Lucie County Schools hosted a family literacy workshop, called REaD Carpet Ready. This fun, interactive family workshop engaged K-5 parents and their children in a 1.5-hour, red-carpet-themed training program. Parents learned easy-to-implement reading strategies to support their child’s literacy development at home.

REaD Carpet Ready workshop allowed families to enter the world of Hollywood celebrities, complete with red carpet, paparazzi and voting on nominees for best-dressed “star”, all while learning how to incorporate an extra 20 minutes of reading into their busy lives.

REaD Carpet Ready family workshop is part of the Just Take 20 campaign that launched across the state of Florida during the 2015/2016 school year.

Over 300 students, parents, police officers and ROTC members participated in CSI night at MSE.  The students “scientifically” tested clues (blood, finger prints, PH, hair, etc.) to find out who stole the candy jar.  Mr. Graff was the thief!  Thank you, Mrs. Jennings, for another successful CSI night!

Dorothy in Wonderland, The Musical is the first full drama production performed at Palm Pointe Educational Research School @ Tradition.  What an amazing job the cast and crew did.  The drama class, under the direction of Mrs. Melanie Larsen, worked very hard getting ready for this show and it definitely paid off.  The cast posed for a picture just before the opening performance.  Congratulations to all the Palm Pointe Players!
