PBIS Focus: Teacher please recognize students for working as a community for the next two weeks, until holiday break.
Here is how:
- Be explicit: say to students “students I am selecting students for coyote cash recognition this week for students who are working as a community. For example; for helping others, being kind to one another, helping me, donating to drives, demonstrating a positive attitude toward others and classwork, being super polite and courteous, and following all rules.”
- Select students daily for the next two weeks and provide 3 Coyote Cash for working as a community and tell them exactly why what they have done is being recognized
Goal: To promote positive attributes in the HOWL mission while providing Coyote to all grade levels.

Reading Endorsement Courses!
Winter/Spring 2019 Reading Endorsement Course Offerings: Share with teachers
Registration opens in myPGS on December 17, 2018.
Pasco County Schools offers five reading endorsement courses throughout the school year and summer to provide our teachers an opportunity to add the endorsement to their teaching certificate. In order to receive the endorsement, teachers complete courses that develop their understanding of the foundations of language, research of best practices, assessment, and differentiation in reading, as well as a semester practicum. Once all five courses are successfully completed, teachers can add the endorsement to their certificate.
The attached document lists the courses offered this winter/spring, their myPGS course number, and details about dates that the courses run for the winter/spring session. For additional information about endorsement requirements, please review the FAQ document. Please share this with anyone who may be interested in your buildings.
We are anticipating high enrollment in these courses; please encourage teachers to register quickly. If you have any questions, please contact Rachel Hatten.

Instructions for Students Requesting to Test Semester Exams Early
Please encourage perfect attendance during the Final Exam week!
Here are the steps that students/parents should take if they need to sign out of school early during the final exam days.
- Parents should submit a “Request for a Pre-Approved Absence” on the CCMHS home page by clicking on the Report an Absence button.
- Once approved by admin, the request is forwarded to Ms. Perez in Student Services and Mr. Copeland.
- When Mr. Copeland receives the request, he will contact the student and parent directly to arrange the date/time of early testing if the student will be absent on a testing day.
- Students who need to make up exams will have to do so during non-exam periods on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
- If the request is not made or approved AND the student does not take the exam, then they will receive a grade of “0”.
