STUDENT & STAFF H.O.W.L. OUTS!

3 MORE WEEKS LEFT IN QUARTER 3!!!

Coyotes,

It is crucially important to think about your current status in Quarter 3. Now is the time to focus your energy on maintaining your current status if you are doing well, or to pick up some steam to finish strong! You have two choices every day - REPEAT your efforts, or EVOLVE! Here are some tips to finish strong!


  1. Procrastination is not your friend! Get your work done in a timely fashion and TURN IT IN!
  2. Study for tests and quizzes!
  3. Stay or get organized! Take some time to go through your backpack and clean it out - turn in any work you find immediately - any score is better than a zero!
  4. Sleep is important! We know you like to stay up late, but turn off those phones and get some rest - it will make you more alert during the day and help you stay focused!
  5. Talk to your teachers! Find out what you are missing if it is unclear. Ask them how you can improve your grades! They get up every day to come to work to teach you - they want you to succeed, but you have to put forth effort!
  6. Be positive and pat yourself on the back for any and all efforts to improve! You are all capable of amazing things - EVOLVE every day!

Essay Contest - Win $300

Pasco County Tax Collector Mike Fasano announced that his office is accepting entries in a month-long essay contest. The competition begins February 8, and ends March 12 at 5 p.m. The essay contest is for all Pasco County high school students (grades 9-12). Students from all Pasco County high schools--public or private--are welcome to participate.

In 500 words or less students will answer the question: “When unexpected events occur such as COVID-19 or a devastating storm, people are often negatively impacted. Some may lose their jobs, their homes or experience other setbacks in their lives. Keeping in mind that funds expended by government (local, state or federal) must come from somewhere, what do you think government should do to assist people to get through these challenges?”

Entries will be judged by a panel of directors from the Pasco County Tax Collector’s Office. Entries will be reviewed on how well the student communicates his/ her response to the question as well as overall essay structure, appearance and readability.

The student who writes the winning entry will receive a $300 gift card.

Entries will be accepted until 5 p.m. on March 12. Each entry should include the student’s name, school, grade and contact information. The winner of the essay contest will be notified by phone no later than April 9.

Students in public and charter schools are asked to submit their essays to their principal, who will forward them to the tax collector’s office. Entries may also be delivered to our office in New Port Richey at 4720 U.S. Highway 19, New Port Richey 34652 c/o Greg Giordano. Additionally, entries will be accepted via email at ggiordano@pascotaxes.com . If there are any questions about the contest please contact Giordano at 727-847-8179.
