Davidson Realty agent Mirtha Barzaga recently held back-to-school drives at the King & Bear Amenity Center and Heritage Landing Amenity Center in World Golf Village. Mirtha collected school supplies to benefit kids in need at several St. Johns County Schools.

The turnout was fantastic at both events, helping lots of students to start the school year off right! Generous donors delivered essential supplies like backpacks, notebooks, folders, markers, crayons, scissors and more.

“Many local students don’t have the basic things they need for school, which makes academic success all the more difficult for them,” said Mirtha. “These supplies help give students the confidence they need to learn, knowing they have the necessary tools.”

Summer break will soon be ending for St. Johns County students (first day of school is Friday, August 10) and the school district has plenty of resources to help families prepare for the upcoming school year. Here are some excellent online sources for schedules, news and enrollment information.

Enrollment

School enrollment is easy! Just visit the St. Johns County Schools enrollment page to get started. It is recommended that parents register their kids as soon as possible to help reduce the volume of students enrolling when school starts and help the district prepare for the appropriate number of teachers.

Please note:If you are already enrolled, you may still need to take action! Current students must update residency documentation before transitioning to middle (6th grade) and high school (9th grade)!

Northern St. Johns County has become one of the area’s most desired locations for homebuyers. It’s no wonder! Residents enjoy quick access to Jacksonville and an A-rated school district—all set against a pastoral backdrop of live oaks and palm trees (not to mention great golf).

In recent years, the area has experienced significant residential and commercial growth. The U.S. Census Bureau places St. Johns County as the 11th fastest-growing county in the U.S. (based on 2013/2014 estimates).
