Take the Exceptional Student Education annual parent survey
The annual Exceptional Student Education parent survey conducted by the Florida Department of Education is underway through Sunday, May 31. The survey gives parents of students receiving special education services the opportunity to provide feedback on their school involvement and provide comments on their child’s school. This type of parent input is critical in determining if the district will meet the requirements for the state’s Annual Performance Report. The parent survey is available online at www.esesurvey.com or www.pcsb.org/ese. To request a hard copy of the survey, contact Marty Massimo, FDLRS Parent Service Specialist at email@example.com or 793-2723 x2043.
Our Kindergarten tour dates are April 14th and May 8th between 9:15 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. No need to RSVP.

Volunteers are highly regarded as a contributing factor to our school's success. We take great pride in the strong relationships that have grown through our volunteer programs. Parents and community members are always invited to be a part of our school family, help support student academic achievement, and develop good citizenship. We strive to build memberships through our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and School Advisory Council (SAC). We encourage our parents and families to volunteer their time on campus by tutoring or mentoring our students.
Parents are encouraged to maintain communication with your child's teacher by discussing your interests or addressing your concerns. Working together in a supportive environment, we can meet the needs of our students.
