St. Lucie County is a great place to live, learn, work, play, and grow. Pictured below are our TCHS and PSLHS candidates.
Mr. Kurt Wallach, a Holocaust survivor, visited Fort Pierce Westwood High School for a presentation for the junior class. He told his personal story and shared accounts and artifacts of his time in Nazi Germany. Mr. Wallach followed with taking questions from our student body. This was a somber, eye opening, once in a lifetime experience for our school and we are grateful for this opportunity.
A sincere thank you goes out to one of our history teacher, Ms. Tara Clark, for organizing this for our students and faculty.
On Wednesday, May 18, a group of graduating seniors from St. Lucie West Centennial High School walked through the halls of Manatee Academy for the first ever high school clap out. Each year our 8th grade students participate in a clap out on their way to their middle school graduation ceremonies but this was the first time with high school seniors.
It was special for the seniors as some of them had once attended Manatee and had the opportunity to come back one last time to see the teachers and staff who helped them get to this point. It was a memorable experience. For the Manatee students, seeing the seniors in their caps and gowns provided excitement and understanding that with hard work, one day they too will graduate high school and get to have an entire school celebrating their accomplishments.
