STAR Award: Stephen Malpass

STAR Award: Stephen Malpass

STAR Awards are special recognitions for employees who demonstrate outstanding service above and beyond expectations.  At the January School Board Meeting, the District was honored to recognize Mr. Stephen Malpass, a member of the maintenance team.

According to administrators and staff at Lakewood Park Elementary, Mr. Malpass is always a tremendous help and is never seen without a smile on his face.  His positive attitude and willingness to do whatever he can, whenever he can, make him a valuable asset to their school and certainly to the St. Lucie Public Schools District.  Even though he is a member of the District’s maintenance team, they feel like he is a part of their Lakewood Park Falcon family.

Congratulations!

Elks Lodge #1520 Donation

Elks Lodge #1520 Donation

Mr. Lenny Smallacombe of the Elks Lodge #1520 is a powerhouse advocate for students and was honored for spearheading donation efforts for St. Lucie Public Schools students.

What started out six years ago as a weekend backpack program for five children has turned into an ever-growing platform of support. Mr. Smallacombe and his fellow lodge members have expanded their weekend food backpack program to hundreds of children, fulfilled special school program needs, provided complementary summer camp opportunities to students, secured grants for literacy projects, and supported students’ family nutrition needs during special times of the year.

The District appreciates the benefit Mr. Smallacombe and his army of volunteers bring to students.

All comprehensive high schools in the District scored at or above 91.7 percent with an overall average of 96.5 percent. “This is a monumental accomplishment.  All demographic groups continue to perform at high levels as more and more students graduate each year.  This is vital to support college and career opportunities for our students and will continue to aid economic development in our community,” said Superintendent E.

The Spirit of Giving

The Spirit of Giving

Over 600 St. Lucie Public Schools students received food, clothing, and supplies from generous members of the Elks Lodge #1520 in Fort Pierce. The December 12th delivery schedule started out promising to serve 3 schools, but as donations poured in, the number of schools quickly grew to 13. This growth mirrors the growth in the number of students who benefit from the Elks Backpack Program which supports students throughout the year.

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.
