The Giving Concert – October 25th

The sixth annual Giving Concert is planned for October 25th at Lincoln Park Academy in the auditorium located at 1806 Avenue I in Fort Pierce. The doors open to the general public at 6:30 p.m. and the concert boasting area choral groups begins at 7:00 p.m.

The event, sponsored by St. Lucie Public Schools and organized by Choral Director Dr. Rolanda Jones, will support Grace Packs which, in turn, benefits students.  Grace Packs is a weekly weekend back pack program that provides necessary food items to students in need. Admission to the concert is a non-perishable food item to be donated to Grace Packs.   Director of Grace Packs Laura Klosterman said that non-expired Chef Boyardee products are items in particular need for the program.

Concert-goers of all ages will enjoy the musical selections from area middle and high school choral groups.  Featured at this event are ensembles from Allapattah Flats K-8, Dan McCarty Middle School, Forest Grove Middle School, Fort Pierce Central High School, Fort Pierce Westwood High School, Lincoln Park Academy, Saint Lucie West Centennial High School, and Treasure Coast High School.

Three Area Schools Distinguished

Three Area Schools Distinguished

Lincoln Park Academy, Palm Point Research School at Tradition, and West Gate K-8, have been distinguished by Florida’s State Board of Education as Schools of Excellence. To be eligible, schools must have an A or a B for each of the last three years and rank in the 80th percentile in their school type or grade grouping for at least two of the most recent three years.

“All three schools boast rigorous academic programs and cater to multi-age groups,” explained Chief Academic Officer Dr. Helen Wild. “Lincoln Park serves grades 6 – 12 and both Palm Point and West Gate serve grades K – 8.”

As a school principal, Henry Sanabria indicated that he is proud to include this as one of the Greyhound’s points of pride.  Palm Point’s Kathy Perez and Melissa Hutchings of West Gate agree that the distinction is a mark of excellence for their respective schools. All three school leaders attribute the positive qualities of each staff’s professional culture to on-going talent development and to the focus on student achievement.
