Message from Mr. McDermott

As quarter one comes to an end, please make sure you are actively monitoring your student's performance. If your student has not been successful first quarter, please reach out to the teachers to develop a plan for success. Also, we offer many opportunities for students to get assistance and retake opportunities if they are struggling. The two biggest factors for student success are attendance and turning work in on-time. As a parent/guardian, you can also set up notifications in my student that will alert you if your student's grade slip (directions below). Remember, there is no school for students on Monday, 10/18/21 as this is a teacher planning day.

Did you miss Picture Day?

Freshmen, sophomores, and juniors who were unable to get their photo taken can still get their photo taken for the yearbook. Students will need to see Mrs. Ingram in Room 327 during Homeroom before October 26th to get their photo taken. Students, stop by Room 327 before or after school to pick up a yellow pass so you can be excused out of Homeroom. Email pingram@pasco.k12.fl.us with any questions.
