Our look ahead

2020 was a time of great change, but our mission at the Education Foundation remains the same. For 30 years we have dedicated ourselves to advancing public education. I am proud of the hard work by the Education Foundation Board of Directors and the professional staff.

Fiscal year ending June 30, 2020 ended on a high note with revenue reaching a three-year high despite the cancellation of a key program in late April 2020 due to the pandemic. Our net position increased by 10% and the unrestricted portion has allowed the foundation to operate effectively even as the impacts of COVID-19 reached St. Lucie County. Our goals have always been to improve our relevancy to the school district and support our struggling students while celebrating excellence at the district.

So far this year, the foundation raised over $70,000 for laptops for students, we also helped acquire additional iPads from private businesses and we helped feed our homeless students during the summer. We also continued to raise funds to replenish hygiene kits for homeless students in partnership with St. Lucie County and several community organizations.

In all, we have raised over $100,000 to help our students during the COVID crisis.

At the same time, we continue to support academic programs and this year we awarded an additional $25,000 for teacher grants to support early literacy and improve the emotional wellness of our children.

As the second half of the year unfolds, we are working on Night of the Stars, the district employee recognition ceremony and our 2021 Annual Scholarship Ceremony.

Night of the Stars will be televised live on WLX TV on Sat., Feb. 6 at 4PM. Watch for the announcement of the winner for Teacher of the Year, School Related Employee of the Year, Distinguished Minority Educator of the Year, Outstanding First Year Teacher of the Year and Administrators of the Year (Principal & Assistant Principal of the Year).

As one of the largest private scholarship programs in St. Lucie County, the Education Foundation awards approximately 60 scholarships each year thanks to our many donors, such as the Aaron Project. Online applications are now being accepted through March 21 and awards will be announced on May 3, 2021. All graduating seniors at St Lucie Public Schools are invited to apply.

Finally, I would like to thank our many donors and benefactors who have continued to support our mission to advance public education for all students in St Lucie Public Schools.
