    Dear Families,                                                                                                          

    We are almost to the end of the school year. It has flown by!

    The students have done an incredible job with all the testing and staying focused, thank you. We still have a few things to accomplish before the last day and need students here and ready to learn. Our 5th graders will be having several special events coming up to mark the end of their elementary school years.

    Our Spring Concert will be held at the Palm Lake Christian Church next door on May 14th at 6:00 PM.

    On May 19th we will be honored by the ST Math Corporation for FIRST Place in the video contest- Ms. Clutter, her class and Ms. Alfaro rocked it!

    If you have a Kindergartener starting with us next year we will be hosting two orientation sessions on May 21st: 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. We hope you can join us!  

    Summer Bridge classes are filling fast. Be sure you have signed up if your child qualified. If you need assistance, please call the school and our DMT, Ms. Warner, will assist you. We want to keep the continuity of learning throughout the summer.

    If you checked out a Title I laptop computer please be sure to return it for upgrades. You can drop it off in the front office or directly return it to Mr. Parr.

    Please consider being a member of our PTA or School Advisory Council next year- we need YOU!

    Congratulations to the following students for submitting an essay for National Police Week: Josh Goff, Kaitlyn Havens, Nico DeNapoli, Tywan Armstrong, Bryce Luce, and Austin Ly. They were awarded with Rays vouchers (courtesy of St. Pete Police) for four tickets each! Thank you for supporting your local police departments!

    Congratulations to the 2 families that won the Perfect Attendance drawings for the month of April: Jack Moraniec and Kody Tucker. Thank you for being here on time every day in April!

  • According to Allington & McGill-Franzen, summer reading setback has been well established as a major contributor to the reading achievement gap. Northwest Elementary is providing families with books to read over the summer as an effective strategy for addressing the problems of summer reading loss. In a joint effort, the divisions of Exceptional Student Education and Teaching & Learning purchased books to ensure that every K-4 student has a book to read and reread over the summer. Northwest is sending home the following books:
    K- Knuffle Bunny, Too
    1 – Chester’s Way
    2 – Horrible Harry
    3 - A–Z Mystery
    4 – The Homework Machine
    You child will also bring home a calendar that has a list of activities to be completed over summer break.  Have your child turn in the completed calendar at the beginning of next school year.  The school that turns in the most calendars will win a prize from the district as well as a school wide incentive.  If you loose your calendar you can print a new one from the PCSB website "Beyond the Classroom" link.
