Learning to RISE...the Stuart way!

Message from Principal Velez

This week we celebrated Counselor Appreciation Week. Our Counselors, School Psychologist and School-Based Therapist play an important role in supporting our Raptors' socio-emotional needs. Our Raptors wrote letters of appreciation to our team. In addition, the Stuart staff and admin team showed our appreciation through several activities we organized for them. The mental health of your Raptors matters very much. If at any time you feel your child needs support, please do not hesitate to reach out to them.
