Welcome to Ponce de Leon Elementary. Students in grades 3-5 will have the opportunity this year to check out a computer for home use. Beyond the Classroom is a districtwide initiative that will expand digital learning and extended learning opportunities for our students. This program will provide our students with free access to several online educational resources that will motivate them to read more and help them to improve their skills in many subjects, including language arts, science and math. This program is aimed at giving students at Title I schools equal access to the technology they need to be successful. If you would like to participate in this program, please call the front office at 588-3573.
Pinellas County Schools Homework Helpline, (727) 547-7223, offers free homework help for students in grades 1-12. The Homework Helpline is staffed by teachers certified in math, science, language arts and social studies. Help is available from 5 to 8 p.m., Monday through Thursday, on all school days, except when there is no school the following day.
Reminder: Connect for Success Laptop Inventory Return
If your child checked out a Title I Connect for Success laptop this year, please return it to your child’s school for mandatory inventory, updating and maintenance between April 13th and April 17th, 2015. If your child is currently enrolled in Kindergarten through fourth grade, the laptop may be reissued to your child for summer extended learning once the inventory process has been completed. Contact your school’s Connect for Success Liaison for any questions you may have regarding this program.
