Monthly Events Of Wildcats: Summer 2021

Principals Message

Hello Wildcat families!


At the beginning of each month the Monthly Events Of Wildcats (MEOW) newsletter is published to inform families of celebrations, events, activities and information for that month. This newsletter is sent via email through our school communication system. Please make sure that your current email address is listed with the first contact for your student to ensure you receive this information first hand. In addition, the MEOW is posted on our school web site (tewms.pasco.k12.fl.us), Facebook page (TEWMSPrincipal) and Twitter feed (@TEWMSPrincipal).


Included in this newsletter is information pertaining to the beginning of the school year. I will publish an "August" newsletter on August 1st.

TEWMS School Advisory Council (SAC)

We are looking for parents, business partners and community members to join our School Advisory Council (SAC). The SAC is a school-based group intended to represent the school, the community, and those persons closest to the students. The group shares responsibility for guiding the school toward continuous improvement. The purpose of a SAC is to assist in the preparation and evaluation of the results of the school improvement plan and to assist the principal with the annual school budget. Additionally, SAC receives funds to be used at the discretion of the council. A portion of the money should be used for implementing the school improvement plan.


The TEWMS council meets four times a year to review the status of the school, share and makes determinations on how TEWMS uses lottery dollars. Our meetings start at 9am, last about an hour and are scheduled for the following dates:

  1. September 24, 2021
  2. December 10, 2021
  3. February 25, 2022
  4. April 29, 2022


If you are interested in joining, please email Mrs. Martin, Principal Secretary (lemartin@pasco.k12.fl.us).

Support our TEWMS Wildcat Cheerleaders

They are having a Car Wash fund raiser at the Advanced Auto Parts store on US 54 on Friday July 30th from 9am - 3pm. Stop by and say Hi to Coach Cochran and our TEWMS Cheer leaders.

All families are encouraged to have a myStudent account in order to obtain student schedules, monitor student’s grades, assignments and attendance. Another account that is helpful for families to have is a Rycor account, where families can pay fees, purchase items, etc., throughout the school year. Both of these account can be made prior to the school year starting. The myStudent account needs to be set up first, then 24 hours later, the Rycor account can be made. Once an account is made, you do not need to redo, as these accounts roll every year.
