On November 16, 2019 the Port St Lucie High School Jaguar Battalion Male and Female Raider teams competed at the state level at Boy Scout Camp Flaming Arrow in Lake Wales, FL. The teams went through physical and mental challenges and overcame a lot of different tasks to get through the competition. Many of our teams persisted on even when they were past their breaking points. They performed with the most effort and determination to accomplish their tasks. The events they competed in were Rope Bridge, Cross Country Rescue, Tire Flip, Team Run, and finally Obstacle Course. Each were very challenging, and in the end, the female team placed 4th overall on the state level and the male team placed 3rd overall at the state level.

All year long, Kindergarten Rockets have been tending their garden of fresh herbs, vegetables, and greens. Students were excited to harvest some of their produce to create fresh, homemade salsa using cilantro and green peppers from the gardens. To quench their thirst, they also made a lemonade that they incorporated fresh mint into. Students, parents, and family members all came to see the bounty they prepared and to check out their gardens. Everyone joined together at a Friendship Feast where our Rockets serenaded their families with songs of thanks and friendship. Palm Pointe is thankful for all our students and families.
