Meet Your Teacher this Friday, School Starts Monday!

The new school year is almost just around the corner! Poinciana will be open for parents and students to meet their new teachers this Friday, August 15th from 1pm to 3pm. If you have already purchased supplies to donate to your child’s classroom, please feel free to bring them in when you visit on Friday. You can download the Supply/Donation List here.

Help Teachers Get Free Supplies

CityPlace and Palm Beach Broadcasting are working together to provide teachers with free school supplies for their classrooms. From August 4th to August 15th, residents and businesses may drop off everything from paper and pens to calculators and backpacks. With every donation individuals will receive a special coupon to the shops at CityPlace, and businesses will be entered into a drawing to win a free office lunch, valued at $100, at Mellow Mushroom. Teachers will then “shop” for free on August 16th.
