Why: At the Port St. Lucie City Council’s summer retreat in July, the Superintendent of the St. Lucie County School District identified Parkway Elementary as a school with over 60 percent of students on free or reduced lunch.

During the past two month, they have collected more than 1,000 donated school supplies. A teacher from the school will be at the Building Department today at 1:30 to collect all the supplies.
