On Wednesday, September 5th, Lincoln Park Academy’s entire 12th grade congregated in their auditorium for a Jostens inspired commitment to graduate ceremony to celebrate being a senior and to commit to graduate at the end of the year. The energy was captivating when asked how they all felt about being seniors this year as students were seen bouncing in their seats and were heard shouting such phrases as, “Oh, Yeah!” Every single student walked onto the stage, looked our esteemed principal, Mr. Sanabria, in the eyes, and said, “I commit to graduate!” They then joyfully walked over to the table where they were sure to choose the exact color sharpie that would best represent them when signing the graduation gown. The beautiful gown of many colored signatures, which represents the breathtaking diversity and togetherness of our school, will be put on display for all those who enter our school to see our students’ total commitment to graduate.
Lincoln Park Academy Seniors had their first Senior meeting. During the meeting several things were discussed by their class sponsor, Mr. Gray. Mr. Sanabria, school principal, spoke to the students and shook the hand of every class senior to ensure that they are committed to graduate. The seniors received a class shirt and signed the graduation gown as a symbol of their commitment!

On Saturday, March 18, the LPA Key Club provided assistance to the Main Street Fort Pierce program by sponsoring and promoting the Coloring Wall during the Taste of the Sea and Sandy Shoes Seafood Festival in downtown Fort Pierce. Designed as a means to recruit festival participants in an entertaining and creative activity, the Coloring Wall was very successful.
Throughout the day, several Key Club members were able to entice young and old alike to express themselves with crayons, paints, chalk and markers. As the pictures show, the wall drew many children and adults alike to paint pictures, express their emotions and convey messages for others to read.
Main Street Fort Pierce, Inc. is a comprehensive revitalization program designed to encourage economic development in conjunction with historic preservation. Established in 1988, Main Street Fort Pierce, Inc. (a not-for-profit corporation) is a local, public-private partnership funded by memberships, fund-raising projects and city government.
