Spring Break Content Challenge
Over the course of Spring Break, families are encouraged to work with their students in order to
keep learning active and relevant. The Spring Break Content Challenge is intended to be a support
for families and students of Pinellas County Schools wishing to have fun while learning over spring
In order to participate in the Spring Break Challenge, have your student go to the Spring Break
Challenge web page at http://tinyurl.com/znqtcxr. After clicking on this link, you will be taken to the
Office 365 login screen where you will need to type in your student’s PCS email address, e.g.
R2.D2@pcsb.org (Hint: Remember to use the dot!). Then your computer will be automatically
directed to another login screen where you will again enter your child’s R2.D2 (this time without the
‘@pcsb.org’) and also their password. After clicking “OK,” your child will be able to access the
Spring Break Challenge web page and activities.
Once logged in, have your student read, compute, watch, and/or play (depending on the resource
presented in each link) the activities which they find most interesting. As always, students should be
supervised while working on the internet. Have your student complete a Response Form
(also available on the Spring Break Challenge web page) to record how long they have spent
working on the learning task and what they have learned. Be sure to have your student fill out a
separate response form for each type of learning activity they have completed.
Also, please don't forget to check out the Prizes tab for information about each of the Spring Break
Challenges and possible rewards.
Enjoy a safe spring break and HAPPY LEARNING!

It is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year at Lake St. George. We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is our goal to help every child feel welcomed, connected and a part of Lake St. George Elementary. As you know we have great teachers and staff who spend hours planning and creating class activities that engage our students in learning. Our teachers use research-based best practice and analyze academic data to determine current skill levels and to set goals for growth and improvement. We hope that you find our website helpful and informative. You can find important dates, our monthly newsletter, teacher email addresses, how to get involved and so much more. Not to mention great photos of our kids in action. I am honored to serve as the principal of Lake St. George Elementary. It is truly a privilege to be a part of an A+ community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.
Once again, welcome back to our little piece of paradise! Let's make it another great year!
