Homecoming 2017 was a huge success! Congratulations to Madison Bradley and Lekeidrick Tate, who were crowned Homecoming Queen and King during the halftime ceremony. The week was filled with Shark Spirit and Pride as students participated in dress up days, Spirit Night, and the Pep Rally. The Class of 2018 Seniors were the big winners for the week, along with our Varsity Sharks, in their win over the Ridgewood Rams. A special thank you to all of the Class Sponsors, Mrs. Holloman and Student Government for organizing all of the festivities. Check out highlights from the week on YouTube!
Students showed off their Shark Spirit at the first Pep Rally of the year Friday. The chant competition between the classes was fierce, which is a good sign for what to expect during Homecoming Week. The night was capped off with the Varsity Sharks earning a huge District win over the Wesley Chapel Wildcats 27-10!
A number of our Sharks were recognized this week at the Principal’s Brunch and AP Performers Breakfast. Students who earned a Level 5 on the Spring state assessments were also celebrated with an ice cream treat during lunch. Special shout out to Allison Mickey who earned a PERFECT SCORE on the U.S. History EOC. Congratulations to all of our Sharks for exemplifying excellence. Way to REP the Sharks!
Anclote High School hosted the Take Stock in Children mentors and mentees this week for our annual kick-off breakfast. The time and support the mentors provide to our students is greatly appreciated, in addition to the outstanding support of the Pasco Education Foundation in facilitating the Take Stock in Children program.
AHS would like to thank everyone who donated to our Anclote Sharks in support of those in need as a result of Hurricane Irma. We collected thousands of snacks and food items to distribute to students, as well as more than $1500 in gift cards and cash donations. The generosity of our community is greatly appreciated.
As students return to school this week following Hurricane Irma, we understand many families are still experiencing power outages and other impacts from the storm. School counselors and the social worker are available to connect families with necessary resources throughout the recovery process.
As a result of recent events, the state of Florida has made adjustments to the state testing windows, which are all reflected on the school calendar. PERT testing is this week, however, the ELA Writing Retakes have been moved to the following week.
