Many thanks to SLPS School Board Member, Dr. Donna Mills and her husband, Pastor Kenneth Mills. The Mills hold a very special place in the heart and soul of all that makes up Northport K-8. Thanks as well to Gertrude Walker, Supervisor of Elections for Saint Lucie County and to Debra Hall, mail in ballot supervisor. Ms. Walker’s words were meaningful and the students were enthralled. Our Black History program was so memorable thanks to these wonderful people who shared their time, knowledge, and experience, as well as their love for our children and teachers. Job well done to Diane Crumpton, Northport K-8 guidance counselor for organizing the beautiful event, and thank you to band director, Ricardo Renelus, and drama teacher, Allison Barajas for providing entertainment.
Excellence in education has been given a big thumbs up at Northport K-8 School. Two seventh grade teams led the school in a spectacular showing at the Project Citizen Showcase. Many thanks to Thomas McDonald and the teachers who brought out the very best in our student teams! Job well done!
Planning to build a better future! 8th grade Northstars students visited the Robotics and Photonics labs at IRSC on February 15, 2019 for some hands-on learning. Students explored the roles that lasers and robotics play in our lives as well as some possible career choices in those fields.
