Pasco schools sweep community involvement awards
For the first time that anyone can recall, Pasco County schools have won both the elementary and middle/high school Family and Community Involvement Awards for the region.
The Florida Department of Education and PTA issue the awards annually, by region, for the schools that have successful programs that can be replicated by others.
This year, Fox Hollow Elementary was recognized for its Hollow Diner, which served weekly dinners to students and their families while also providing homework assistance.
Zephyrhills High was honored for its Weekend Backpack Program and Bulldog Boutique, which provides students with food for the weekend and clothing for events such as the prom.
The schools will be officially celebrated at an event in July at Innisbrook.
