Every year Palm Pointe Educational Research School @ Tradition hosts a breakfast for the school’s bus drivers. Drivers and aides that come to our school each day are invited to come and enjoy a fun morning with a delicious hot breakfast. A PowerPoint presentation is also shared with the drivers going over the P.B.I.S. (Positive Behavior Interventions and Support) expectations for the students.
All drivers go home with a gift to show how much they are appreciated. Raffle prizes and a game were also part of the morning’s festivities.

Wonderful things with literacy are happening in the K-2 section of Northport! This week is “National Dog Week!” In honor of our children building literacy skills in a fun way and dogs, Star Bright Therapy dogs have been visiting classes and titillating children to read. Reading therapy dogs have visited the classes of April Smith, Michelle Sharrah, Elaine Lawrence, Michele Kemp, Jennifer Lusardi, Deb Day, Denise Fields, Rose Rumer, Lorelle Ceville, Angela Rodriguez, Renee Immordino, Pam Mishler, Shana Cicio and Lorri Lamm.
The dogs and their loving owners have brought joy and companionship to the children and that is what is so important. Many thanks to Dorothy Blair from the SLC Public library and her group, Bright and Beautiful Reading Therapy Dogs.
We love the dogs @NP! Encouraging the love of reading is at the top of our list of goals!
TCHS Key Club had their first event on Sept. 18. This was an orientation of the St. Lucie Botanical Gardens. Students learned about the Gardens, how they are kept, and how to volunteer.
The Botanical Gardens hosts a variety of events, but have always welcomed TCHS!
At Mariposa Elementary, Mrs. Linda Auciello’s 1st grade class was working on counting on and writing their numbers through 30. Student Tyler Rubenstein took this request to an ultimate level and counted all the way through the number 120.
It took him five white boards to write them, but he was determined to show what he knew and refused to give up!
The 25th annual POW/MIA ceremony was hosted by Chapter 556 of the Vietnam Veterans of America at Veterans Memorial Park. Cadets from the Port Saint Lucie High School Jaguar Battalion showed their support and paid their respects to our missing and captured veterans. This ceremony showed our appreciation to the people who defended our country and recognized that we will never forget them.
Present at the ceremony was a table set for one. This table was our way of symbolizing the fact that members of our profession of arms are missing from our midst. The cadets formed an “Honor Cordon” at the entrance and aligned to the memorial. The cadets were proud to have participated in the remembrance ceremony, which was appreciated by all those who attended.
