It’s hard to believe we are in March and that Spring Break is here! I hope that each of our Bobcat families have a wonderful Spring Break.  Whether you are staying home or traveling away during the break from school, we hope you enjoy some time as a family and come back ready for our 4th quarter of the school year.  

    Over the break, Mrs. Cannata and I have challenged students to continue their learning with the final learning challenge of the year. We will be celebrating our students that conquer the challenge on Saturday, April 4th, at 10:00, at AMC Woodlands, Oldsmar. We look forward to celebrating many of our Bobcats that take some time to think while away from school.

    As the end of the school year is starting to feel closer, many of us are thinking through summer plans and before long next year. I wanted to take a minute to review our policy on teacher requests and non-requests. To effectively balance classes, many factors are considered when teachers and administrators create class lists. Because of this process, we are unable to accept parent requests for a specific teacher by name. However, I welcome you to send me a letter/email describing your child’s learning style or an effective teaching style for your child if you feel it necessary. If you would like to non-request a teacher, that a sibling has had, you must submit that in writing, including the name of the sibling and the year. We make every effort to make the best match possible between student and teacher with the many variables we take into consideration. Our goal is always a successful and collaborative learning environment for all students.  All letters/emails must be received no later than April 1, 2020, to be included in the class placement process.

    I look forward to seeing you around campus soon. Please let me know if you have any celebrations, questions or concerns. It is my pleasure to support you and your child in any way I can.
