Our aging population, the increased use of medical technologies for diagnosis and treatment, and the resulting demand for healthcare services assure us that Healthcare will continue to be the fastest-growing industry sector. St. Lucie County’s Allied Health programs offer students opportunities for certifications that lead to entry-level jobs in Healthcare, as well as articulated credits to continue their educational and career pathway at the college level.
Note: Completion of Health Science Anatomy and Physiology and Health Science Foundations may be substituted for one science credit in Anatomy and Physiology (2000350). However, this course or its substitutions do not meet requirements for an “Equally Rigorous Science” credit.

Mariposa Elementary’s Odyssey of the Mind team led by Mrs. Jennifer Scipioni competed in the Palms Regional tournament in Riviera Beach, Florida. They competed in Division 1 for problem number 5 titled “Furs, Fins, Feathers and Friends.” They were one out of eight teams that decided to solve this problem. To solve this problem they created a comedic play about three animal friends (a hummingbird, a black panther, and a puffer fish) that helped a stranger get new pants, helped each other think positively with an adventure song, and helped all animals survive by finding King Arthur the Ant and helping him get back home.
All of their hard work paid off because they placed 2nd in their competition! A video of their performance was recorded to play over the morning announcements. If you see Samantha Gardner, Justin Horton, James Phillips, Sydnee Rubenstein, Alexandra “Allie” Smith, or Janellie Alvarez, make sure you congratulate them on their well-earned achievement. Plans are already underway to help prepare for next year’s competition. The team is already sad that Allie won’t be able to participate next year because she is moving to middle school. The search for her replacement is not going to be easy.
Fourth and Fifth Grade students in 21st CCLC received donated “Walk-Its” from The Walking Classroom. Students walk three times per week, while listening to content related pod-casts. Students track their heart rate and total steps. Floresta students LOVE getting fit while learning!
Students in Mrs. Kasey Ascani’s second grade class at Frances K. Sweet had a visitor from UF USDA lab. Sean Reif, parent of Arianne Reif, came in to do a presentation about plants and afterwards the class enjoyed some of the delicious fruit that grows on them.
