Working on his skills en-USFORT PIERCE -More than half of the en-US schools in the St. Lucie County School en-US District received higher marks from the en-US state during the 2016-17 school year, with en-US the District itself rising from a C to a B. en-US The other two districts on the Treasure en-US Coast, Indian River and Martin, earned a en-US B and an A, respectively, when the state en-US issued school report cards June 28.en-US St. Lucie Schools Superintendent E. en-US Wayne Gent attributed the significant en-US improvement to the whole village menen-US -en-US tality of District employees.en-US The data continues telling a positive en-US story about the academic growth taking en-US place in our classrooms across the Disen-US-en-US trict, he said. Our teachers, our adminen-US-en-US istrators, our support staff, our bus driven-US-en-US ers -everyone, absolutely everyone -is en-US putting forth the effort to support our en-US children to make a positive difference in en-US their lives. en-US The two District schools that received en-US failing grades last year -St. Lucie Eleen-US -en-US mentary and Chester A. Moore Elemenen-US-en-US tary School -both passed this year, with en-US the former earning a D and the latter en-US jumping two places to a C. Chester A. en-US Moore Principal Jennifer Hedeen crediten-US -en-US ed that leap to a concentrated effort in en-US three main areas.en-US First, we used data to drive our en-US instruction, allowing us to meet the needs en-US of each student, she said. Then we built en-US the capacity of teachers through collaboen-US -en-US rative planning to break down the Florida en-US State Standards and focus on exactly what en-US they are asking students to do and how to en-US differentiate that for students that may en-US have learning gaps. And we built a posien-US -en-US tive culture by creating whole school en-US expectations for behavior for students en-US inviting our community members to en-USCounty en-US schools en-US see riseen-US in gradesen-USMore than half en-US of schools see en-US improvement during en-US 2016-17 school yearen-USBy Donald Rodrigueen-USFor Hometown Newsen-USSeeen-US en-US SCHOOLSen-US page 4en-USST LUCIE COUNTY For three decades now, en-US The Hundred Club has recognized public safety en-US first-responders and their families for their hard en-US work. The group got together in June for the annuen-US -en-US al First Responder of the Year Banquet to point out en-US individually their contributions toward the en-US community to help keep it safe.en-US Six honorees were named, from the St. Lucie en-US County Sheriffs Office, Fort Pierce Police Departen-US-en-US ment, Port St. Lucie Police Department, St. Lucie en-US Fire District and Florida Highway Patrol. The puren-US -en-US pose of the event was also to provide assistance to en-US spouses and dependents of first-responders who en-US have lost their lives or become disabled as a result en-US of their sacrifices.en-US One of this years nominees was St. Lucie Sheren-US -en-US iffs Office Dep. Denetta Johnson, who supervises en-US inmates as a B-Wing supervisor at the St. Lucie en-US County Jail and was the Detention Deputy of the en-US Year. On a daily basis, she performed in an exemen-US -en-US plary fashion, contributing to the mental health, en-US medical, juvenile and federal inmate dorms, and en-US was honored by the SLCSO for her role in these en-US efforts. en-US Being part of this was amazing, everything that en-US I received I didnt expect but I was so honored and en-US giving others hope to keep working hard means en-US you will be recognized, Dep. Johnson said. Being en-US involved is very important to me, because my taren-US -en-US gets mainly are the young people and the more I en-US stay out in the community the more they can see en-US me interact with them.en-US Its important to give them hope.en-US One of her key contributions to the SLCSO was en-US as the agencys leader in formulating a process to en-US replace recent retirees. During her tenure as acten-US -en-US ing supervisor, Dep. Johnson excelled, just as she en-US has as a deputy for many years. In fact, many en-US under her watch commend her for having the wisen-US -en-US dom and guidance that new detention deputies en-US look for in a seasoned, veteran supervisor, accorden-US -en-US ing to her nomination letter. en-US Deputy Johnson has worked throughout her en-US years of service to the promotional process, and en-US advance her education and sought out other en-US high-quality supervisors to glean as much inforen-US -en-US mation from them as possible and even made effien-US -en-US ciency recommendations to improve and streamen-US-en-US line jail processes, the nomination letter en-US continued. en-US She routinely volunteers for committee work en-US and community service projects, and has become en-US a highly recognized and respected face within the en-USFirst responder honoreden-US for effortsBy Gaylon Parker gparker@hometownnewsol.comen-USSeeen-US en-US HONOREDen-US page 2en-USTeequaivious en-US Mills, 9, of Fort en-US Pierce, takes a en-US turn at the en-US hurdle drill.en-USSevin Bullwinkleen-US staff photographeren-USAlbert Wilson, wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs and Port St. Lucie High en-US School graduate, offers the Youth Skills Camp to present young adults with better en-US opportunities, as well as providing out of state scholarships to foster kids, duel en-US athlete scholarships, and scholarships to kids in tough situations.

Again, more engaged students equal en-US less disruption, which ultimately means en-US more quality teaching and learning.en-US Mariposa Elementary School also jumped en-US two letter grades, rising from a D to a B this en-US year. Like the superintendent, Principal en-US Craig Logue credited a whole village menen-US -en-US tality for helping his school achieve success. en-US Our whole school worked with a comen-US-en-US mon purpose and a set of goals, and we en-US never lost sight of them, he said. Everyone en-US believed we could achieve these goals: Our en-US teachers, students, paraprofessionals, office, en-US kitchen, and maintenance staff all believed en-US we could raise our school grade, and each en-US group assisted in accomplishing this goal.en-US Mr. Logue said that in order to succeed, en-US he and his staff had to realistically assess the en-US prior situation. en-US Our biggest challenge was accepting the en-US disappointment of our previous grade and en-US staying focused on our four goals for this en-US year, he said. Those were maintaining a sinen-US-en-US gle school culture, delivering quality differen-US -en-US entiated instruction, collaboratively planen-US -en-US ning within each grade level and delivering en-US daily standards-based instruction.en-US The state awarded As to four District en-US schools -Fairlawn Elementary, Lincoln en-US Park Academy, West Gate K-8 and Mosaic en-US Upper School -while 17 schools received a en-US B, including Port St. Lucie High School, St. en-US Lucie West Centennial High School and en-US Treasure Coast High School (all rising from en-US Cs in the previous school year). Three en-US schools did drop grades this year: Morningen-US -en-US side Elementary School, slipping from a B to en-US a C; Renaissance Charter School at Tradien-US -en-US tion, dropping from an A to a B; and Samuel en-US Gaines Academy, slipping from a C to a D. en-US Since there is still work to be done, Mr. en-US Gent insists the District will not rest on its en-US laurels to simply bask in the light of recent en-US improvement.en-US We celebrate these successes, but by no en-US means have we plateaued, he said. We have en-US high expectations for all students, and we en-US will continue supporting them to be their en-US very best. en-US Mr. Logue said he and his team at Marien-US -en-US posa Elementary have already set their en-US sights on an A for the 2017-18 school year.en-US We will continue with many of the same en-US goals from this past year -weekly collaboen-US -en-US rative planning and data chats with our en-US 2nd to 5th grades to analyze district unit en-US assessments in English language arts, math, en-US and science, he said. Additionally, we will en-US make certain that the curriculum is being en-US taught to the level necessary to meet our rigen-US -en-US orous Florida Standards and to place even en-US more focus on writing in grades 3-5. Finally, en-US we will closely monitor the progress of our en-US students weekly in their content areas to en-US ensure they are making the necessary en-US growth throughout the upcoming year.en-US The state of Florida bases its school en-US grades primarily on how students perform en-US on state tests, taking into account the peren-US -en-US centages of students passing and those maken-US -en-US ing improvements from the previous school en-US year. To calculate high-school grades, Florien-US -en-US da also includes graduation rates and stuen-US-en-US dent success rates on college-level work and en-US industry certifications.en-USSchoolsen-USFrom page 1en-US en-US Contraption Faction:en-US 2 p.m., Zora Neale en-US Hurston Branch Library, 3008 Avenue D, Fort en-US Pierce.

Medicaid isn't just en-US given to anyone; it's a long and involved en-US process and, in the meantime, you and your en-US family are living in a high-stress situation.en-US I ask you, is it worth passing the huge cuts en-US to Medicaid without understanding what it en-US will do to a huge portion of our society, en-US especially seniors? en-USThe war was over 150 years agoen-USIn answer to the rant about the Confederen-US -en-US ate memorial, my answer to that is that the en-US war has been over for more than 150 years.en-US For the people at the time of the Civil en-US War, both sides lost hundreds of thousands en-US of people. They honored their dead for en-US fighting for their beliefs.en-US I think the memorials were put up to en-US honor these people and should be respected. en-US It was the thing of the times.en-US If you are offended, ask yourself why.en-US The war was not about slavery. The war en-US was about many other things, about comen-US -en-US merce, trade and method of transferring en-US goods that were sold.en-USMy family fought on both sidesen-USI just want to thank you for the Rants & en-US Raves and everything else, but I am really en-US confused now.en-US My great-grandfather and my en-US great-grandfather fought on both sides, one en-US for the Confederates and one for the Union. en-US It is like, "Oh, what am I supposed to do? en-US Which way am I supposed to go?"en-US Thank you. That is something that hapen-US -en-US pened in our history. And I thank you very en-US much.en-USKeeping faith in en-US good, human spiriten-USI would like to thank the people in a black en-US Jaguar on June 21 in a time period of about en-US 1 p.m. with somebody struggling with groen-US -en-US ceries with the bags breaking as she walked en-US with an impending thunderstorm heading en-US our way, who actually turned the corner, en-US put their hazards on, jumped out and helped en-US the woman get all her stuff picked up, put it en-US all in their car put the woman and her en-US purse in their car and, I assume, drove her en-US home.en-US People do not always show human kinden-US -en-US ness and uplifting human spirit, but they en-US showed it to her, those around her and those en-US who could see from a distance.en-US I had just about given up on good, human en-US spirit.en-US So, once again, thank you to the man and en-US the woman in the black Jaguar on June 21 at en-US about 1 p.m. who helped the woman out en-US with her groceries and her struggle.en-US You really helped her out, helped me out en-US and possibly others in that same intersecen-US -en-US tion.en-USDouble billed at the storeen-USI have been shopping at Walmart for en-US about 15 years.en-US About six months ago, while sitting on a en-US bench, I decided to check my receipts for en-US accuracy.
