    Parents, beginning Monday, it is time to take the Pinellas County Schools stakeholder survey.  I hope everyone can take just a few minutes to complete this important survey as I would like to know your thoughts on what is working well and what are some areas that we can focus on for growth as it is our goal to provide the best educational experience possible for our students. The link (www.pcsb.org/survey ) will be displayed on our school website as well as in the email update and will open Monday, November 28th.

    This Wednesday, we look forward to hosting our next SAC and PTSA meetings beginning at 5:30pm for SAC and 6:00pm for PTSA. These meetings are both will take place in the cafeteria and all are welcome to attend.

    Looking ahead, our students in all grades will be taking their 2nd of 3 FAST progress monitoring assessments on December 5th for Reading and December 6th for Math.  These assessments will be giving through an extended 1st period both mornings.

    I want to thank all those who have donated items for our food pantry. Because of your generosity, we were able to help 17 families for Thanksgiving!  We were able to put together baskets for the holiday meal in addition to extra meals.  We are always in need of donations year round and If you have any questions about our Food Pantry or know a family in need please contact Michelle Shepard at shepardm@pcsb.org or extension 2005. We also have another drive taking place from 11/30-12/6 called Military Matters which is led by our student leadership club.  There are various ways to help this charity which all information is attached to the email update. https://operationmilitarymatters.com/?gclid=Cj0KCQiA99ybBhD9ARIsALvZavXUTL3z-oBGWKJwFF7fE-Y1dmly60X7NwIB_W1ipj-GqI5bqW58UUIaAp3MEALw_wcB
