Pinellas County schools holding discovery nights Dec. 16-18

Little time left to shop for schools

Eight special programs will hold discovery nights in the next few days as the Pinellas school system winds toward the close of its tour season and looks ahead to the application process in January.

Discovery nights give families a chance to tour magnet, fundamental and career programs and hear what they offer. Many programs offer other ways to explore their programs; families should contact individual programs for information.

Discovery nights begin at 6 p.m. and usually last 60 to 90 minutes. Here are those scheduled for the coming week:


• Leadership Conservatory for the Arts, Tarpon Springs Middle

• Osceola Fundamental High


• Clearwater Fundamental Middle

• Academy for Aquatic Management Systems & Environmental Technology, Lakewood High

• Center for Journalism and Multimedia (CJAM), Lakewood High


• Pasadena Fundamental Elementary

• Center for Advanced Technologies (CAT) at Lakewood High

• Center for Construction Technologies at St. Petersburg High

This week in tb-two*

In the last edition until Jan. 16, we offer tips on how to make a snowman out of sand, a guide to classic holiday movies, more homemade gifts and gluten-free eating. If you're not in high school, go to for a list of places to find a free copy of this Times weekly produced by high school journalists when school is in session.

One more week!

Schools will close for winter holidays Dec. 23 and will reopen Jan. 7.
