Dear Bobcat Families,
    As we enter March, we also enter a time of the year where our students get to
    demonstrate all they have learned on our statewide and district assessments. This week, our
    4th and 5th graders completed their writing portion of the ELA Florida Standards Assessment
    and all students are working through their final cycle of MAP testing. As a school, we are
    focusing on these assessments as a time to “show off” all that they have learned this year.
    We know that our students are ready and will perform well on assessment days. Thank you
    for your support in making sure that your students are here each day, on time, and thank you
    for your understanding of our closed campus to visitors to help ensure the best environment
    for our students. I will be communicating closed campus days in my Sunday afternoon calls
    and on the marquee.

    At the end of the month, Mrs. Cannata and I will be challenging students to continue
    their learning over Spring Break with the final learning challenge of the year. We will be
    celebrating our students that conquer the challenge on Saturday, April 14th, at 10:00, at AMC
    Woodlands, Oldsmar. We look forward to celebrating our Bobcats that take ownership of their

    Summer Bridge registration is underway. Cypress Woods will be hosting us this
    summer. Information about the program can be found on our District website, as well as, a
    link for registering in the Student Registration System https://www.pcsb.org/Page/4036.
    Summer Bridge will be held Monday through Thursday, June 5th through July 19th, from 8:30-
    12:30 daily. There will be no classes the week of July 4th. If you have any questions about the
    program, please don’t hesitate to give me a call. We had a great summer last year and I am
    looking forward another great summer this year.

    If you haven’t completed our school survey yet, there is still time. Our survey will
    close on Monday, March 12th. https://eprovesurveys.advanced.
