In honor of 9/11, St. Lucie Elementary third graders commemorated the day learning about our community’s local heroes. Members of Port St. Lucie’s SWAT team shared information about gun safety, their jobs, and equipment. St. Lucie County Fire Dept. taught the students how to prepare their homes for safety, taught them about the use of their equipment, and gave a tour of the trucks! We also had special visits from a St. Lucie County Deputy, a Fort Pierce police officer, and St. Lucie County and Martin County firefighters who spent time reading to the students in the classroom. Thank you Ms. Hallahan for organizing this engaging event!
Mrs. Woulard and the entire staff and student body of St. Lucie Elementary are so excited about our new butterfly garden. The St. Lucie County Retired Educators donated all the materials needed to create this beautiful addition to our campus. Ms. Kurtti and Ms. Lewis’s class were thrilled to be a part of the planting process! Thank you St. Lucie Retired Educators!
Saint Lucie Elementary celebrated another opening of the school year with the Tunnel Hope on Friday, August 15th. Administrators, staff members, School Board members, police officers and other community members gathered to welcome, encourage and motivate our students to put their best foot forward and remain positive in their outlook for the future. We love our Lynx and know that every child can succeed!
Saint Lucie Elementary had their 2016-2017 Open House on Thursday August 11th from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. A new agenda for this school year has been coined by Administration as “Mission Possible” and the entire faculty and staff are rejuvenated with a fresh commitment to the school being “on its way to an A”. With an impressive turn out of familiar and new young faces, everyone is filled with promise and hope for a fruitful academic year.
On Thursday, January 21, 2016, students, parents, and staff at St. Lucie Elementary participated in Literacy Night. In addition to the many other events SLE hosts to promote and support family involvement, teachers and staff lovingly served dinner and provided a variety of skill-based literacy activities for parents and children to partake.
Literacy Night is an innovative way to provide children and parents with various reading techniques. Participants were involved in the five components of reading (phonemic awareness, phonic, reading comprehension, reading fluency, and vocabulary development). Students and parents were engaged in literacy rich activities that were challenging, meaningful, and respectful. The literacy activities were geared towards students in grades K-5. Students learned various reading strategies, and they were given materials to take home. Parents were able to observe teachers modeling effective teaching techniques and instructional strategies.
The encore of Math Night was an event to remember with an awesome turnout of volunteer staff, faculty, students and parents participating in the wide array of activities. Many contributed to this night being a huge success. SLE and especially Math Coach, Mrs. Herrera extend much appreciation for the wonderful service provided by many who assisted in preparing for, hosting and managing the event. View below and see what a great opportunity Math Night can be for the SLE family to join together and provide an amazing, fun, enriching and learning experience to our community!
The wonder of story time magically revealed itself last Wednesday when SLE parents, staff and students celebrated the joy of reading by having Storybook Character Day. Administration, faculty and students wore costumes of their favorite storybook characters and marched in a parade as well as share their most memorable parts of their books. SLE even welcomed a special visit from Curious George and the Man in the Yellow Hat and hosted a spooky comical play narrated and played by the resource team for K-2 grade students. Storybook Character Day was a Positive Behavior Support program event requiring students to have earned at least 10 Lynx Loots awarded for good behavior and being a role model in order to participate. We are pleased and proud to announce that most of our students were eligible to attend. View our pictures below, feel free to experience our next great SLE family event and don’t forget to encourage your kids today to discover the magic and joy of reading!
