The Florida and Pinellas Teacher of the Year, Sarah Smart Painter , was on campus to award Mya her scholarship. Thank you to the State of Florida and Florida Pre-Paid College, who in partnership with Mrs. Painter are able to award one student with the gift of college. Mrs. Painter planted the love of learning in Mya, a former student of hers.
It was a pleasure to see this magic moment of hope, success and inspiration take place in front of her classmates, educators and family. Go Mya!

Thank you to our PTSA and SAC for organizing two amazing events last week. Our PTSA sponsors a Principal's List and Honor Roll Party once a quarter. Over 130 students earned straight A's and over 400 students earned A's and B's. Thank you to the Board and parent volunteers! In addition, our SAC hosted a Family Movie Night where parents had the opportunity to discuss their child's progress with an administrator. The students had a great time and the school team made meaningful connections with parents and students about their academic progress. Thank you to our whole school community for supporting both organizations in so many ways.
