LPA Graduate Dr. Sizemore-Ruiz Comes Full Circle

LPA Graduate Dr. Sizemore-Ruiz Comes Full Circle

The nationally known cardiologist, Dr. Tiffany Sizemore-Ruiz, Class of 2003, returned to Lincoln Park Academy to dispense nuggets of wisdom to the eighth-grade graduates of 2017.  She delivered the message that all lessons learned in eighth grade were relevant as she shared anecdotes of the hard-tack lesson from Mr. David Perry’s eighth-grade history class, as well as algebraic strategies taught to her by Ms. Chinn. As a college student, Sizemore-Ruiz passed on the same strategies to her tutor, and she was able to save the life of her Algebra I teacher.  Lastly, she issued a life prescription to the graduates and other members of the audience:  Be kind to one another.

Lincoln Park Academy Art Department Wins First Place at The Saint Lucie County Fair

Lincoln Park Academy Art Department Wins First Place at The Saint Lucie County Fair

The Saint Lucie County Fair Association invited local schools to participate in themed displays.  Following the theme, “Preserve the Fun, Recycle When Done,” Lincoln Park Academy received the first place award in the high school division which included a generous $1,000 cash prize.  In a class discussion about why recycling is important for our planet and its inhabitant, the students came up with the idea that nature cannot be manufactured.  It is a gift from the earth and its beauty cannot be fabricated.  Ms. Duran’s 3D high school students (grades 9-12) collaborated in creating a large tree which read, “We Cannot Manufacture Nature.” 

Students created sculptures out of recycled materials such as newspaper, empty bottles, fabric, and machine parts.  These sculptures were placed around the fallen tree.  The goal of the scene was to juxtapose the subtlety of the beauty of nature with bright and colorful manufactured objects.  There were several large, featured projects including Katrina Wu’s (9th) large bird sculpture produced from recycled cardboard and Terrance Bea’s (12th) elegant and life-like baby elephant.
