Northport Students Collaborate With College Level Campaign!

Northport students in Sandra Tyndale’s eighth grade class and Jennifer Lusardi’s second grade class collaborated with students from Fort Pierce Central High School and Lincoln Park Academy visiting Northport as Dual Enrollment students from Indian River State College. The dual enrollment students visited Northport as an assignment from their college level American Government class.

Students, Samantha Huynh, Anthony Lima, Adriana Sanz and Nayeli Silva are running a mock campaign for Governor of the State of Florida. Candidate for Governor Nayeli Silva visited with the students and provoked a debate concerning mandatory dress code with the older students and the mock candidate and her staff immersed themselves in the educational experiences of the second graders. The dual enrollment students are campaigning on three main issues: economy, education and the environment. Students videotaped their campaign at the school and are putting together their priceless campaign for governor. Northport was so thrilled to be involved in the college level educational experience.
