TCHS Participates in Skills USA

TCHS Participates in Skills USA

Treasure Coast High School’s Criminal Justice and Biotechnology students competed at the SkillsUSA State Conference in Lakeland, Florida.  Students pictured, competed in a range of events from Career Pathways Showcase (Science and Public Safety) to Community Service.

Students competing in Community Service, designed a fun way for everyone to get involved in a recycling program.  The group had a problem and came up with a solution that is innovative and good for the environment.  Students in Criminal Justice, Law and Public Safety developed a Crime Prevention Program.  The students addressed the problem within our community involving at-risk youth and the problem of rising crime rates.   Students in the biotechnology academy showcased how to genetically transform bacteria, with a gene from a jellyfish, to produce a green fluorescent protein. The bacterial transformation method is a well-known procedure that has been used in countless biotechnology products. A great example is the insulin we use today to treat diabetes.

All of these students are applying knowledge gained in the classroom and taking it to the next step through innovation!  Which is a great way for our next generation to be leaders in the classroom and within our community!

TCHS JROTC participates in Homeless Veterans Stand-Down

TCHS JROTC participates in Homeless Veterans Stand-Down

On May 17th, 2018 Treasure Coast High School AFJROTC participated in the first annual Homeless Veterans Stand Down in Fort Pierce, alongside many other organizations. They supplied items such as sleeping bags, care bags, food, boots, and many other helpful items to veterans in need. This is the first of many veterans outreach events for upcoming years, making it one of their unit goals to continue to help struggling veterans. None of this could have been possible without the help of the Treasure Coast High School AFJROTC cadets, culinary, and Care Bags Inc. We interviewed a homeless veteran who said “They’re not there by choice.” A lot of them deal with substance abuse, PTSD, and loneliness. They really love all the things the people do for them and they greatly appreciate it.

TCHS Gaming Club Grows Exponentially!

TCHS Gaming Club Grows Exponentially!

Mr. Darrell M.Schwartz, history teacher at Treasure Coast High School, announces that about two months ago the Gaming Club was created on our campus.
The purpose of the club is to bring all students together who have an interest in friendship and fun competition. The club includes Video and Computer Gaming along with Board Games and Card Games. The club meets weekly and has grown to over 40 students attending with very limited promotion. The most amazing aspect of this club is that it is attracting students who would not normally participate in school events and/or after school activities. A lot of the students have now found a place to hang out, talk, make friends, and have friendly competition.
The club is now looking at creating competitive gaming groups that will be able to compete with other schools online within our state and nation. They are calling themselves Gaming Athletes.
Please feel free to stop by any Tuesday from 2 to 3pm (bldg. 4, room 211) to see this phenomena yourself!

TCHS Coach Kelly Named FABC Coach of the Year

Pat Kelly, who this season guided the Treasure Coast High School boys basketball team to the best record in the program’s 12-year history, has been named the Florida Association of Basketball Coaches Class 9A Coach of the Year. Under Kelly, the Titans started 16-0, finished 26-2, won their second consecutive District 8-9A title and advanced to the Region 2-9A semifinals before losing to 2017 state champion Kissimmee-Osceola.

“It’s nice to be recognized by my peers,” Kelly said. “It’s a reflection of the fact that we had a group of kids who came together and played well and were persistent in trying to accomplish their goals. The kids deserve the credit for buying in.”  The loss ended a school-record 26-game regular-season winning streak. The 16-0 start was the eighth-longest in area history and the best by a St. Lucie County team since high school basketball began in 1919-20.
