Stop The Bleed Training

Stop The Bleed Training

School Board Chair Dr. Donna Mills was at Lawnwood Regional Medical Center with SLPS educators and Executive Director of Exceptional Student Education and Student Services Bill Tomlinson taking a STOP THE BLEED Training.

The training was all about saving a life by knowing how to stop bleeding of open wounds after an injury. More people in the U.S. die from traumatic open wounds and loss of blood than any other cause of death. Lawnwood Regional Medical Center has a partnership with SLPS to train staff. Each participant received a free STOP THE BLEED kit.

A special thank you to the trainers for this session: Lawnwood’s Director of Trauma Services Doreen Gilligan, Mary Givans and Chinetta Neal. A special thanks to Chinetta Neal for helping Dr. Mills bring this invaluable training to St. Lucie Public schools.

 

 

Arts In Education are “Sweet”

Arts In Education are “Sweet”

At Frances K. Sweet, students and teachers are celebrating “Fine Arts in the School” month. Mr. Ingram’s classroom entrance welcomes students with “The Colors of Music” and each week they will be exploring a new genre of music. In Mrs. Miller’s Visual Arts class, students are exploring different medias and are voting on which piece of art will come out on top in our Sweet Sixteen championship! The students can keep track with graphs generated by their voting and a very large bracket set up on the wall of the main hallway.

The Fine Arts are all about creation and celebration at Frances K. Sweet!
