District Gathering – fun for all!
Members of the St. Lucie Public Schools District Office Staff who are serving at various temporary satellite offices throughout the District since the hurricane flooded the Orange Blossom Business Center had the opportunity to convene at Allapattah Flats for a recent meeting. Here, information about SLPS’s academic progress and facility updates was shared, a light luncheon was enjoyed, and a challenge to build a district office from sparse materials set the room abuzz with laughter.
Governor Rick Scott Issued this proclamation to support Disability History and Awareness Weeks. (The first two weeks of October are recognized as Disability History and Awareness Weeks.)
The first two weeks of October are Disability History and Awareness Weeks! Section 1003.4205, Florida Statutes, entitled Disability History and Awareness Instruction, was signed into law in 2008. It designates the first two weeks of October as Disability History and Awareness Weeks and promotes knowledge, understanding, and awareness of individuals with disabilities, disability history, and the disability rights movement.

Students from Port St. Lucie High School and St. Lucie West Centennial High School were joined by their principals and District Student Services Personnel to read a resolution proclaiming the month of October as “Disability Employment Awareness Month” in St. Lucie County. The proclamation was read at the October Board of County Commissioners Meeting.
Students in Port St. Lucie High School’s TV Production program exercised their technical, creative, collaborative, and communication skills as they took full responsibility for the production of the high schools’ first in a series of informative segments known as “JTV Chats.”
The inaugural show was hosted by Sarah El Khoury, senior at PSLHS, and featured Mr. Bill Tomlinson, Executive Director of Student Services and Exceptional Student Education. Technical direction behind the scenes was attributed to Javid Khan and Tyrik Coleman, also seniors at PSLHS.
More pieces to the puzzle…

On Friday, April 21, Allapattah Flats welcomed motivation speaker and author Joseph Dillard of the Speakers Bureau. Mr. Dillard has a passion for reaching young people with a message of realizing that the battle is “ME VS. ME”!
From birth until now, there are many factors in our lives that we cannot control. For example, you cannot control the environment into which you are born. Some of us feel deep down inside that our present situations are not the best. Is that the underlying reason that you chose to disrespect your teachers, administrators, and others around you?
Mr. Dillard really broke the ice as he delved into his personal testimony and shared the following and more: “I do what I do, because I was left behind, I was forgotten about. I was empty and void of love and understanding what life was all about. I was hurting, but the cry was silent.” By this time, the students sat in awe! Mr. Dillard continued sharing some of his past that unfortunately left him with many obstacles to overcome. He then explained that his choice of making a meaningful connection with his creator is the reason why he has overcome many obstacles and has learned how to use wisdom to address all others.
Mr. Dillard concluded with the following: “Have purpose and vision in your life concerning all things, especially your education. You pay for every decision you make, so love yourself enough to make good ones. All things are learnable, so learn. Know what you want, why you want it, and spend the rest of your life going to get it!” Thus, the battle of ME VS. ME!

St. Lucie Public High Schools were offered a challenge to leverage the creativity and ingenuity of their students to create a 2-3 minute site-specific showcase video to promote the quality programs and opportunities students are afforded.
Digital Design/Digital Media/TV Production classes were ideal go-to’s for this project which included the following broad guidelines:
- Accuracy of Content
- Creativity of Presentation
- Adherence to a 2 – 3 minute time frame
- Innovative use of digital media
- Qualities to engage audience
All area high schools participated and after reviewing that creative genius of all entries, it was announced that PSLHS was selected as the Digital Innovation Challenge winner. Mr. Bryan Smith, TV Production Instructor, proudly facilitates the students to whom he attributes full credit for the production of this video.
This as well as the other videos will be posted on school-based web sites as tools for our community to Take a Closer Look into St. Lucie Public Schools. Middle, K8, and elementary school sites will have support over the coming months to produce similar showcase videos.
