On Saturday February 8, 2020 the Port St. Lucie High School Army JROTC Jaguar Battalion Drill team took part in a Drill Competition at Seminole Ridge High School. Drill is an after school activity that tests a cadet’s ability to not only snap to the commands given but have high discipline and listening skills. In this competition, the teams preformed in many different events such as unarmed squad, armed squad, unarmed platoon, male and female duo exhibition and solo exhibition. All these events take a lot of focus from the cadets and an extreme amount of precision.

Northport Northstar students in Mr. Vlaun’s class engaged in great hands-on learning recently. Students worked together with Mr. Vlaun to build Rube Goldberg machines. Students learned about motion, force and simple machines. Rube Goldberg machines named after cartoonist, Goldberg intentionally are designed to perform simple tasks in an indirect and complicated way. The Rube Goldberg machine usually includes a chain reaction. Awesome learning in Mr. Vlaun’s science class!
