  • Spring Break Challenge!

    Welcome to the Spring Break Content Challenge for Elementary Grades!   

    Over the course of Spring Break, families are encouraged to work with their students in order to keep learning active and fun. The Spring Break Content Challenge is intended to be a resource for families and students of Pinellas County Schools wishing to maintain learning over the spring break.    

    In order for your student to be entered in the Spring Break Content Challenge, have them complete the academic activities described on the webpage that they find most interesting.  

    Students working on Istation and MyOn who satisfy the participation requirements will automatically be entered to win prizes; no further action is required by the student.  

    Students working on ST Math, Science 60 Power Words or the FSA Practice Tests must fill in a log which includes a parent/guardian signature, and then turn in the completed log to their classroom teacher after Spring Break. A print-friendly ST Math log is available from each of the grade-level tabs on this web page, as well as the Science 60 Power Words. Students should always be supervised when working on the internet.   

    And don't forget to check out the Prizes tab for information about the Spring Break Challenges and possible rewards.

Meet the Principal

Mrs. Ann Welsh



Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Ann Welsh

Welcome to Anona Elementary!

 It is with a great deal of pride that I introduce myself as the Principal of this wonderful and historic school. My name is Ann Welsh and I have been an educator for 15 + years. Prior to my current position as Principal at Anona, I was Assistant Principal at Oldsmar Elementary. I have experience as a mathematics/science staff developer, an RtI coach and as an elementary teacher.

With a committed teaching staff, involved families and community partners, it is truly my belief that every student here at Anona can reach their potential. The foundational years of elementary school are important to the future success of our young students. Making certain that our students believe in themselves, have the teachers and resources to meet their learning needs while also building and maintaining strong and positive partnerships between the school, its community and the Anona families, I recognize that Anona Elementary will continue to flourish and grow now and in the future.

I am proud and thrilled to serve as your Principal. Please stop by the school at any time to share your thoughts and ideas of how we can continue to improve and to find out about how you can become more involved on our school community.

Ann Welsh


  • Box Tops

    Welcome back to school, parents! My name is Holly Polson and I’m thrilled to be our school’s Box Tops for Education™ Coordinator.

    Clipping Box Tops is an easy way to help earn cash for our school. Each one is worth 10¢ for our school! Just look for the pink Box Tops on hundreds of products. All you have to do is clip them and send them to school.

    Last school year, we earned $379.90 for our school from Box Tops and used the money for classroom supplies and field trips. This school year, our goal is to earn $1,000.

    For more information on Box Tops, including a list of participating products, go to Be sure to sign up as a member (it’s free!) so you can check out our school’s earnings details and get access to coupons and bonus offers.

    If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m here to help make our school’s Box Tops for Education™ program a huge success this year.

    Thanks for your help!

    Coordinator name:  Holly Polson

    The Anona Eagle is looking for a classroom to land! The classroom with the most box tops turned in for the month will win an extended visit from our Anona Eagle (plush) in their Classroom! 



    Dear Anona parents and families!


    It was wonderful meeting you all, and we are so grateful to collectively be such a wonderful group of parents at Anona.  We believe that a large part of student success is a direct result of a strong relationship between the parent and the school.  Participating and supporting the PTA is one of many ways to do so, and we thank you for sharing your contact information to stay in the loop.  Our goal this year is to keep an open line of communication with parents, and ensure the opportunities to help are clear.  If at any time you have questions, you can email this Anona PTA email address and we will get back to you.  Also, if you want to contact any of us directly, please feel free to do so!

    PTA is taking a new approach to fundraising this school year. We have opted out of catalog sales and would like to put our energy and efforts into 2 donation base Fundraiser. Fundraisers completely support the PTA. Also, we would love to hear your ideas and learn what your skills are!  We encourage anyone who has an itch to get involved to please do!  Involvement can be as simple as joining the PTA through membership.  You can also attend our monthly meetings.  Additionally, you can donate some of your time to help us complete tasks.  We will operate mostly with Sign Up Genius for ease.  You will get emails with sign up slots for the events we have lined up for the year.  If you are able to help out, please sign up!  If for any reason you are unable to complete the task you signed up for, we kindly ask that you notify us so we can make other arrangements.

    We look forward to a successful year, and here are some of the exciting events we have planned for the students and families:
