The Principal's Office ​ ​

The last day of the marking period is October 8. Students should have submitted everything they want to count toward their grade by that date. Many activities are in progress. The Homecoming Dance is Gatsby Theme and the students and staff will be dressed to the nines. We will be announcing the perfect scores for FSA and EOC State Assessments. To me this is very exciting, and we will celebrate their successes this week. Spirit Week for the HS is underway culminating in the Homecoming Game against Faith Christian. Keep your fingers crossed. We have finished the assessments for this quarter and the teachers will be discussing the results with your child.  Abby Dicenzo made Florida history by being the FIRST FEMALE to make a rushing TD in a sanctioned football game. She is so amazing. Congratulations to Abby!  Our first School Advisory Council is this Thursday at 6:00 PM at Bell Creek Academy.  We will be discussing topics of importance to our students. Have a wonderful week!!
