When St. Lucie Sheriff’s Officer Wheeler was assigned to support Fairlawn Elementary School, it was apparent that a positive connection was established right away.
With appreciation for the support she provides and wanting her to feel like Fairlawn was her home, teachers and students began writing letters to her and making plans to decorate her office on the school’s campus.
As Principal Holmes visited Mrs. Singley’s second grade classroom, she read Daniel Pereira’s letter. As you can see, he shares his thoughts in a positive format that states thank you in a heartwarming way.
School Resource Officers provide services beyond law enforcement. They build positive relationships with students, staff, and families and serve as valuable mentors for students.
Read in this month’s Principal Leadership “how one school increased teacher collaboration, enhanced trust and transparency, and improved student performance.” This comes to you from our own Kathleen Manchester (Southport Middle School) and Tari Sexton (Forest Grove Middle School).
The Air, Sea, Land Challenge at Treasure Coast High School was an outstanding opportunity for students to exercise their technology skills and demonstrate their robotics ingenuity. Special thanks to Ian Cotner of AT&T who joined Thom Jones of the Education Foundation in sponsoring the drone program at the exhibition.
On 04/04/18, TCHS’s Criminal Justice Department took a group of six students to the Federal Courthouse located in Fort Pierce. Judge Maynard and Judge Rosenberg put together a case about online threats made by an individual. Students were divided into three groups: prosecution, defense, and jury. All three groups worked with true professionals in the field such as lawyers, public defenders, and court staff members. As soon as TCHS was prepared for the mock trial, they went into a real courtroom and performed.
The two judges and all other professionals (a total of eight) guided our students all of the time while providing them with feedback and coaching them.
It was just phenomenal. These people went above and beyond.
