In order to protect the health and safety of employees, staff, and students, all those who access Pasco County School locations must self-screen for symptoms and other risk factors of COVID-19 daily. If you answer YES to any of the questions, you should NOT be on a school campus or school district office. All three self-screeners – the Student Self-Screener, the Employee Self-Screener, and the Visitor Self-Screener – are accessible from the district’s COVID-19 protocols page and are posted on each school web page.

Sunshine State Prize Drawing

One Earned Brag Tag = One Entry into the Prize Drawing!

Here’s how the Prize Drawings work:
  • For every Sunshine State Brag Tag you earn, you will also earn an entry into the next Prize Drawing.
  • Prize Drawings will be immediately before each VES Book Battle in December and May.
  • You do not have to be present and you do not have to qualify for the Book Battle to win a prize.
  • All prize winners will be announced on this page and prizes will be delivered to the classroom.
  • Once an entry is drawn, it will be removed from the drawing. A student may not earn more than one prize during the same drawing, but if a prize is earned in December, that student may earn a prize again in May if he/she still has entries in the drawing. All non-winning tickets in December are added to the May drawing.
  • Prizes and winners for the December and May drawings are listed below.
    • Gift Bag
    • Free Yearbook
    • Lunch with Mrs. Forgas and Mrs. Martinez
    • Center Ice Family 4 Pack
    • Reading Time in Media Center
    • Class Time with Robots and VR Headsets
    • Principal for 1/2 Day
    • Librarian for 1/2 Day
  • Businesses interested in donating prizes may contact Mrs. Forgas.
