  • Packer AP Capstone Event

    Dear Largo Scholar,

    Congratulations on your academic achievements in high school thus far! 

    As you pick courses for next year, do you know how your selections will give you a competitive edge in the college admissions process? Do you know which courses will help you prepare for success at the college or university of your choice?

    For answers to these questions, look to the nationally recognized AP Capstone college preparation program available at your school. The program offers a sequence of two courses for sophomores and juniors. These courses focus on developing the critical thinking, research, collaboration, time management, and presentation skills you need for college-level work.

    To complete AP Capstone, enroll in the following sequence:

    Course Title

    Description

    Advanced Placement Seminar

    Complete a team project and an individual paper and presentation, as well as take a written end-of-course exam.

    Advanced Placement Research

    Explore various research methods and complete an independent research project. Your project can build on a topic, problem, or issue you covered in AP Seminar or on a brand new topic of your own choosing.

    College admissions officers recognize that AP Capstone students know how to build evidence-based arguments, apply research methods, work in teams, deliver professional presentations, and complete long-term academic projects. Public colleges and universities in Florida award elective credit for the courses. Detailed AP Capstone information can be found online at advancesinap.collegeboard.org/ap-capstone.

    In addition to the AP Capstone courses, consider AP classes in which you demonstrated potential for success based on your PSAT results.  Look to balance your schedule with other activities and commitments. AP courses look most impressive on your transcript when you are able to succeed in these classes.

    Please join us for a 15-minute presentation via Facebook Live on Monday, Feb. 26, 2018 at 7 p.m. on the Pinellas County Schools page: facebook.com/mypinellasschools.

    You may also contact Hannah Graziano (grazianoh@pcsb.org), Claire Kelly (kellycl@pcsb.org) or your school counselor for additional information.

    We hope to see you in the AP Capstone program.

    Sincerely,

    Judith Vigue, Director of Advanced Studies & Academic Excellence

  • Belle of the Ball   Belle of the Ball

    The Belle of the Ball project is a non-profit organization which gives prom dresses to girls so they can go to these big events (homecoming and prom)  The boutique is ONLY open on specific days.  Girls arrive early to be part of the initial groups of girls who can "shop" for their dress, shoes and accessories from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  The boutique has over 3,000 dresses sorted by color and size.  (Truly remarkable)  No referral is required as it is on an honor system.  Space is limited, so a young lady may have one person (female) to shop with her.  There is a waiting area for gentlemen and small children as they can't be in the boutique or dressing area.

    2018 Shopping Days - March 10, March 24, April 7 and April 21  (These days ONLY)

  • Packer Cold & Flu Season

    We are entering the time of year when we see influenza (flu) and other respiratory viruses at school. We want to let you know what steps we are taking to keep our school community healthy and how you can help.

    Respiratory infections, such as the flu and common colds (colds), are spread when people come in close contact with sick people and inhale airborne droplets, or come in contact with contaminated surfaces. Flu and colds symptoms can sometimes be difficult to tell them apart, but consider this:

     

    FLU

    COMMON COLD

    How it begins

    Sudden

    Gradual

    Cough

    Severe

    Mild to moderate

    Muscles

    Achy

    None to mild aches

    Stuffy, runny nose

    Sometimes

    Common

    Tiredness

    Severe

    Mild

    Fever

    None to high grade

    None to low grade

    Complications

    Bronchitis/Pneumonia

    Earache/Sinus infection

    If symptoms persist or worsen, make an appointment with your healthcare provider to be evaluated. The flu can be serious for children of all ages, causing them to miss school, activities, or even be hospitalized.

    We take the health of our students seriously and work very hard to keep these viruses from spreading.   We regularly clean frequently touched areas such as door knobs, stair rails, telephones, computer keyboards, and bathroom faucets and fixtures. We also instruct students and staff to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Take 3 approach to fight the flu:

    • Get the flu vaccine every year
    • Take everyday preventative actions to stop the spread of germs:
    • Wash hands often with soap and water, or use alcohol-based hand sanitizers when soap and water are not available,
    • Cover coughs with a disposable tissue or cough into their sleeve,
    • Avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth,
    • Avoid close contact with sick individuals,
    • Avoid sharing cups and eating utensils, and
    • Stay home when sick.
    • Take flu antiviral drugs if your healthcare provider prescribes them

    You can help us maintain a healthy school environment in a variety of ways:

    • Make sure your children receive all recommended immunizations, including an annual flu vaccine,
    • Reinforce all of the above preventive behaviors practiced at school,
    • Make sure children get plenty of exercise, sleep, and healthy food, and
    • Keep sick children home, especially if they have a fever above 100o F, diarrhea, vomiting, or a severe cough.

    Please note that any student with a fever must stay home from school for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone without the use of fever-reducing medicines.

    If you have any questions, please contact your school nurse. Together we can have a healthy winter and spring!

    Credit Recovery

    Scholars who have received a failing grade or a "D" grade in a course may recover the credit and receive forgiveness for the poor grade.  This option is available in many courses taught at Largo.  Upon completion of Credit Recovery, the new grade will replace the old grade and will boost a scholar's grade point average.  Credit Recovery is a online, school-based, after school program at no cost.  Students work at their own pace.  Please contact Mrs. Tammy Proctor in room 2-244 before school or email her at proctort@pcsb.org for a registration form.  Classes are Monday - Thursday (no Fridays) from 2:30 to 4:30.  Classes start on August 14.  Please don't let a poor grade point average prevent you from graduating or losing acceptance to your choice university.  Register today!

    Leaving School Early

    Recently, we had several students walking off campus without acquiring permission to leave school.  County policy mandates that a student must have permission from the school to leave campus. 

    At Largo High School, students are required to get permission to leave campus through the front desk.  There are no excuses for not following this policy.

    Parent, guardian or authorized person may (name listed in Focus)...

    • Call - may release your child by calling Mrs. Brock at 727-588-3758 x2000
    • Email or Write a Note - may write a note to Mrs. Brock (brockb@pcsb.org) which should include
      • the student's legal full name (first and last)
      • parent name
      • parent contact number
      • date of release and time 

    Students will receive a Permit to Leave (PTL) which is proof of leaving campus legally.  Students should write their name clearly on the log indicating time of departure as log entries are used to modify attendance. 

    Students not following policy may face disciplinary actions.
