In a recent Medal of Heroism Ceremony hosted by Westwood High School Panther Battalion, Cadet First Sergeant Unique Rosario received the prestigious Medal of Heroism award. Unique leaped into a river after Hurricane Hermine to save a young boy who had fallen out of his family’s raft. She risked her life thinking only of that young boy and his safety. Unique Rosario is the epitome of heroism, and the Panther Battalion was proud to honor her with this award.
Congratulations to Malik Mosley and Keionte Blackwood on their signing acceptance to Albany State University. Fort Pierce Westwood is proud of its student athletes.
Fort Pierce Magnet School of the Arts fourth and fifth graders were pleased to host special guests from South Africa on Friday, March 18.
The South Africa team shared about the culture, wildlife, economy, and schools of South Africa. Students enjoyed this opportunity to learn about another culture and even sang and danced!
Fort Pierce Magnet School of the Arts 7th grade students had some fun with FSA math review. Students used beach balls with problems written on them to practice circumference and area of circles.
Mrs. Nesbitt’s first grade class worked on sequencing events in writing. Students created a flow map using Eric Carle’s book The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Students in Mrs. Logue’s science classes got to be marine biologists last week in science class! Students “captured” a sea turtle and had to collect data on the turtle including its species, weight, straight carapace length and width, and curved carapace length and width.
Students also had to assess the turtle’s overall health condition and decide if the turtle was healthy enough for release or if or needed to be sent to rehab.
The students enjoyed being able to work like real scientists and learned a lot about Florida’s sea turtles! Thank you to Inwater Research Group for making this experience possible for our students!
Mrs. Logue’s fifth grade students at Fort Pierce Magnet School of the Arts got to take a closer look at the food chain earlier this week as they dissected owl pellets to discover what prey the owl had consumed. Students had a great time and even got to take the bones they found home with them when they finished!
Students in Mrs. Logue’s fifth grade science class at Fort Pierce Magnet School of the Arts investigated four different chemical reactions during a class lab. Students were able to describe the basic physical properties of matter, make careful observations, and identify common signals that a chemical reaction had occurred including a color change, an endothermic reaction, an exothermic reaction, and a gas release.
Fifth grade students in Mrs. Logue’s science class at FPMSA explored how when the environment changes, differences between individuals allow some plants and animals to survive and reproduce while others die or move to new locations.
Students had 10 seconds to pick up as many beans as possible. They discovered that they picked up more beans of the color that contrasted with the paper they were on. The beans similar in color to the paper represented the animals that have a better chance of survival due to the physical adaptation of camouflage.

On Tuesday, October 4, The National Theatre for Children came to our school and performed for our K-2 students. They performed an energy show sponsored by FPL titled Captain Wattage.

Fort Pierce Central’s Culinary Academy and administration feed the football team!
Not only do culinary students gain hospitality experience and volunteer hours while supporting our football team but they were also visited by Brandon Parks, FPC Culinary Academy graduate (farthest left in picture). Brandon is currently attending Valencia College in Orlando and just landed a job with Disney’s Animal Kingdom restaurant as a 2nd line cook! Disney hired him based on his work experiences in the Cobra Cafe and the St. Lucie CookOff (winning team member) as he never worked in the restaurant industry.
Congratulations, Brandon Parks! Go Cobras!
Fort Pierce Central High School’s Wrestling Team won its first Regional Wrestling Title since 1995. The 3A Region 3 Champs qualified 11 athletes for the state tournament.

This exhibit showcases the work of the Creative Photography students from Fort Pierce Central High School. The school added photography courses four years ago, and in that time Heather Blackmon-Gordon’s students have grown in both skill and scope. With photography as their commonality, they search for their own creative style and vision.
The students have spent the last few months documenting, critiquing and reflecting on physical and mental places in their lives. The photographs are of people and places, with a focus on utilizing lighting to portray moods. Many of the photos are pieces of seniors’ portfolios that they are submitting to visual arts colleges and universities for Portfolio Day, or to the prestigious Scholastic Art Competition.
