According to Wuest, she sees the award for bringing additional nutrition professionals into the SNA as a positive way to strengthen child nutrition programs across the nation as the organization provides a collaborative network of positive practices and bonds together to advocate for enhancements in school meal programs.

The Florida Retired Educators Association made a special presentation to Northport rising 6th grader Jayden Diago for her outstanding accomplishment in writing.

Jayden Diago won the Florida Retired Educators Association District 9 essay contest this year. District 9 encompasses five counties including St. Lucie, Martin, Okeechobee, Highlands, and Indian River.  Students were asked to write about  “Moments with My Grandparents.”  Jayden wrote about her grandpa or jampa who lives in the Phillapines in her essay entitled “My Occasional Jampa.”  Even though she is only able to visit with her jampa occasionally, her memories are special ones and his energy as well as his cooking make the visits very special indeed.

Jayden is very proud of her jampa.

Wreaths Across America

Wreaths Across America

On Saturday, December 15, 12 cadets from Treasure Coast High School AFJROTC volunteered to help Wreaths Across America at Rolling Oaks Cemetery, 2200 SW Del Rio Blvd. Port St. Lucie. There, they remembered and honored our fallen veterans through the laying of Remembrance Wreaths on the graves of our country’s veteran heroes.

From the Revolutionary War to present day conflicts, our veterans are devoted sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers. They come from all backgrounds in life to place their lives on the line for our freedoms. Furthermore, TCHS would like to honor Mrs. Lisa Heinz, a substitute teacher with St. Lucie Public Schools. She received the Gold Star on this day.

WPBF’s Weather Program Visits Mariposa Elementary

Cris Martinez’s weather program from WPBF News Channel 25 visted Mariposa Elementary’s fifth graders. The students kicked off the weather program with a rap they wrote and choreographed about how hurricanes form. Next, Mr. Martinez discussed and interactively presented how tornadoes form and how they affect us in Florida. Rebecca Sampson was interviewed by Cris Martinez; she explained how much she enjoyed his interactive presentations. It was a great learning experience for our fifth graders!

WPBF Teacher of the Week – Lindsey Perez

WPBF Teacher of the Week – Lindsey Perez

Lindsey Perez joined the Allapattah Flats family last school year and has made it her home. You never know what you will find when you enter the doors of Mrs. Perez’s science class. Hands-on, minds-on learning is always taking place as students engage in lessons designed to get them excited about science and all its wonders. At the end of the period, students never want to leave; Mrs. Perez ignites a desire in students to want to learn more. Girls and boys alike engage in competitive discoveries such as using a pumpkin to determine which is more powerful — fire or ice. She is a dynamic teacher who is always challenging her students and making science fun! Allapattah Flats is fortunate to have Lindsey Perez, and her students would definitely agree!
