Computer Cart Return / Checkout Procedures

Just a reminder:
  • Carts are to be returned daily unless arranged otherwise ahead of time
  • All computers/ipads need to be plugged in
  • All computers/ipads need to be in the correct numbered spots
  • The carts need to be plugged into the wall and in the correct spot. Please check that the button on the cart is lit up by the cord. If it is not, the cord may need to be pushed in.

If you are having students return the carts PLEASE reiterate the procedures and give them ample time to return the cart before the bell rings. Mrs. Warren or I may not be around to supervise as they get returned. Do not assume that the student knows what to do so please tell them.

Checkout & Cancelation- If you have checked out a computer cart but no longer need it, please delete your requests so that is open for another teacher to reserve. If you switch carts with another teacher please reflect that on the checkout system.

Thank you for working as a community!

The Golden Coyote has been awarded to Mrs. Gricoski!

Thank you for all your hard work and dedication!

The proctor schedule will be coming soon!!!

SAT School Day - April 9th

Juniors and Seniors, want the convenience and ease of taking the SAT on a weekday at CCMHS?

Cypress Creek will be offering the regular SAT exam on Tuesday, April 9th, to all interested juniors and seniors. This is only time that the SAT exam is offered during the school day AND at CCMHS. Students must register in the MEDIA CENTER with Mrs. Larimore or Mr. Copeland. The cost is $55 and parents/students may by cash, check, or credit card via their ACORN account. If a parents pays online, the student must still register in the Media Center.

The deadline to register is Wednesday, March 6th.

ACT-NCR 2/19-2/21

Registered juniors and seniors that have not met the Algebra 1 EOC and/or FSA ELA graduation assessment requirement will participate in the ACT-Non College Reporting exam during the week of 2/20-2/21. Only one session will be administered each day. Students only have to sit for the session(s) they need (i.e. students needing only the ELA requirement do not have to sit for the Mathematics session). Students needing the ELA requirement will sit for both the English and Reading sessions.

Wed 2/20 English

Thu 2/21 Mathematics

Fri 2/22 Reading

Students may leave the testing room as they finish the exam.

2019 Youth Risk Behavior Survey

Next week, the High School will be participating in the Youth Risk Behavior Survey, also known as the YRBS. This is a 45 minute national survey conducted by the CDC (Center for Disease Control) out of Atlanta, Georgia. The YRBS is a survey that Pasco County Schools has previously participated in. This survey will be completed anonymously and students and classes will be randomly selected at our school to participate. A passive permission slip has been sent home today with students whose class is randomly selected. Therefore, if you wish for your student to NOT participate in this anonymous survey, please return the completed “opt out” portion on the permission slip. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Copeland, our School Assessment Coordinator.

2019 Florida Youth Survey

Next week, the Middle School will be participating in the 2019 Florida Youth Survey sponsored by the Department of Health, the Department of Education, and the Department of Children and Families. This survey will be completed anonymously and students and classes will be randomly selected at our school to participate. A passive permission slip will be sent home Monday with students whose class is randomly selected. Therefore, if you wish for your student to NOT participate in this anonymous survey, please return the completed “opt out” portion on the permission slip. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Copeland, our School Assessment Coordinator.
