Imagine School – Nau Campus in Port St. Lucie celebrated on Saturday, April 25 with its 3rd annual school carnival designed to meet and greet the parents, friends and neighbors in the community and express appreciation for the support over the past year to the students and staff of Nau Campus. It was a beautiful, bright sunshiny day with blue skies overhead, a picturesque day, ideal for fun and enjoyment and indeed it met that goal for all that gathered to join in on the celebration. Joining Principal John Drag in ‘meeting and greeting’ the Port St. Lucie and surrounding community participants was Imagine Schools’ statewide Executive Vice President, Rod Sasse.
The layout of the carnival was well organized and completely supplied with all of the fixtures of the annual county fair in a downsized version in the school’s front area and parking lot which included full support of the SRO unit of the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s office, providing on-site Photo ID cards, fingerprinting and gift bags for the students inclusive of safety information for bike safety, etc. The Fire Department made their presence known with big bright red fire trucks at the front entrance of the event. Smokey the Bear was also at the carnival chatting with everyone about fire prevention!
Colorful giant bounce houses and fun featured amusement was available for kids to indulge and have fun galore from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. A bike riding area was provided by the Sheriff’s department as a training section to show proper bike executions for safety including wearing of helmets. An assortment of vendors (donate a portion of their sales from the carnival to the school) were present from jewelry, health products, face painting, game tables, volunteer groups and of course the food vendors were all in place to serve delicious foods and ice cold drinks all strategically placed thanks to the excellent organization skills of Lucine Chan and the school’s PTO.
