SUMMER REWIND WITH AN EYE ON FALL!

Starting in June, the Education Foundation enters into what may seem as a summer lull. It’s a time when we catch our breath just enough to take advantage of the down time to prepare for the upcoming school year.

The 2017-2018 school year was a productive year. We ended the school year on a high note with the Education Foundation Scholarship Awards Ceremony, the first Annual Charity Baseball Game and the Coupon Books Fundraiser awards and prize recognition.

As the summer comes to a close, we want to again congratulate our scholarship recipients and wish them well as each embarks on their journey of continuing education.

Special congratulations to the St. Lucie County Education Foundation and St. Lucie Employee Dependent (Payroll Deduction) scholarship recipients:

 Alison Comperchio

We also kicked off the summer with our 1st Annual Charity Baseball Game, Fire Fighters vs St. Lucie Public Schools (SLPS), held at the METS Stadium on May 12th. Thank you again to our Fire Fighters and SLPS team members and supporters. Thank you also to our sponsors and to the St. Lucie Mets Stadium for allowing us to hold this activity in their venue.

This year we were happy to be able to recognize and award prizes from the Education Foundation to the schools that participated in the Coupon Book Fundraiser and/or excelled in sales despite the challenges.

2018-2019 is going to be a great year! The SLPS is a B rated district with no failing schools! And we are all a part of that success. The Education Foundation plans to roll up its sleeves even more to encourage and expound on the success of the SLPS.
