PBIS Unity Garden

Posted on Dec 5, 2017

Mariposa Elementary celebrated their PBIS by creating a Unity Friendship Rock Garden. Florida Falls in Fort Pierce was very generous in donating over 700 rocks. Each student was able to design their own rock to represent friendship, unity, anti-bullying, caring words, and respect. Once the rocks were complete they were placed in a “garden” for all students and staff to enjoy. The rock garden sends a strong message of positivity for all. Anthony Vidal, Joseph Scotti, Luke Saintelien-Elan, Kristal Santiago, Justin Ingersoll, Lawrence Pierre, Lillith McAdams, Jeremy Beausoleil, Clara Hager, Jonathan Smith, and Jahmal Julmis from Mrs. Lana Watson’s class are placing their creatively decorated rocks with unity messages into the garden.

Pictured are Andrew Newhouse, Jaxson Plantier, Malia Johnson, Jaistyn Thurston, and Madelyn Farrell. What a great way to learn about the defining attributes of 3D shapes!

ST. LUCIE COUNTY –  According to St. Lucie Public Schools (SLPS) District officials, students and staff will recoup valuable instructional time lost during Hurricane Irma.  On September 27, 2017, the early dismissal schedule reverts back to a regular school-day schedule, and the October 27, 2017 student holiday now becomes a regular school day as well.

“Making September 27 and October 27 regular school days provides our students and teachers with valuable instructional time,” said Superintendent E. Wayne Gent. He stated that it is important for the District to maintain this focus in order for students to reach their personal learning goals.

The 2017-2018 school calendar will be updated and posted on the SLPS homepage at for easy access by students, parents, and community members.
