Northport Promotes Dental Hygiene and Health!

Northport Promotes Dental Hygiene and Health!

Northport was so pleased to host Ary De Latorre from Dr. Cook’s Dental Office. With February being National Dental Health Month, students learned all about healthy sneezing, correct hand washing techniques, and how to brush their teeth properly. Students also learned not to share toothbrushes, how to floss, and how to eat to deter bacteria. It was a great learning experience, and we appreciate all the time spent educating our youngest students on proper teeth brushing. Thank you very much to Dr. Cook’s Dental Office!

SLPS High Schools Featured in Aero Newsletter

SLPS High Schools Featured in Aero Newsletter

Two of our area high schools were featured in the Spring 2019 e-newsletter for Gaetz Aerospace Institute and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.  See the articles and featured photos below!

School safety is a concern not only for parents, teachers, administrators, but also for students that attend school. When local law enforcement asked students to assist them in a school safety plan, they provided some high tech solutions. Students at Fort Pierce Central High School provided drones as an option to help with school safety. (Image below)

Fort Pierce Central High School students visited Triumph Aerostructures in Stuart, Florida during Florida Aviation Business Association week. They were able to tour the production facility that produces flight control surfaces for Boeing aircraft. Students really enjoyed the opportunity and look forward to possible internships with Triumph. Thank you Triumph Aerostructures!  (Image below)

Emma Teague from Piper Aerospace Company of Vero Beach presented at Treasure Coast High School to the AFJROTC and ERAU dual enrolled students/cadets. Ms. Teague discussed the Piper Apprenticeship Program for seniors that are interested in a career in the aviation industry. Students have an opportunity to apply for this apprenticeship, and if selected will be hired full time after graduation at Piper for two years while completing the program.

Schools Create a “Buddy Bench”

Schools Create a “Buddy Bench”

Later this spring, three Saint Lucie Public Schools: Morningside Elementary, Oak Hammock K-8, and West Gate K-8 will each receive a Buddy Bench.

A Buddy Bench is anti-bullying, and keeps plastic out of the landfill!  It’s a brightly colored bench made from recycled plastic caps that’s also a ‘safe space’ – signaling when a child has a need, and teaches all of the children about the environment.
