Northport Second Graders Become Researchers and Scientists!

Northport Second Graders Become Researchers and Scientists!

Northport students became researchers and scientists in their classrooms. Hobe Sound Nature Preserve brought live owls to enhance the science lessons learned in school. Students learned about heredity and the difference between owls and red tailed hawks. They learned what owls eat as well as their natural habitats, and they also learned that owls can’t digest foods so they form pellets similar to hairballs. The pellets are filled with bones from their prey. Students were able to dissect sterilized pellets and match bone pieces to figures on a chart.

A big thumbs up to this terrific hands-on lesson. Many thanks to Hobe Sound Nature Preserve and to the many parents who helped dissect and engage our students. Woo Hoo! Parents Rock!

With the support of Special Olympics Coordinators from local high schools, St. Lucie Public Schools hosted its first Unified Track and Field Meet on Wednesday, March 8th at Lawnwood Stadium in Fort Pierce.

The Meet started out as a practice run, but it soon turned into a full-fledged event that engaged all participants in a spirited day.  The excitement of the track and field events was infectious and everyone left with smiles on their faces.

 

LPA MS Students Preparing for the Next Step

LPA MS Students Preparing for the Next Step

On Friday, February 3, 2017, 26 select 8th grade students from Lincoln Park Academy toured several programs at Indian River State College during Middle School Great Explorations.  These students spent the day gaining valuable hands-on experience in the robotics, photonics, medical services, and computer animation/digital media fields.  The purpose of the trip centered on the connection between secondary education and the world of work, cementing the learning which took place during the 8th grade Naviance activities completed throughout the school year.  Feedback from the students was very encouraging and we can’t wait for next year’s trip!
