School registration, auction set; Young Heroes Awards taking names

registration for Kindergarten, new students TO BEGIN

Pinellas County schools will begin registering incoming kindergarteners and other new students Wednesday. The district is urging parents to register for the 2010-11 school year by May 1.

Here's how:

• First, find out what your zoned school is at, the district's Web site. Scroll down the "PCS News" list to find the link that says "Zoned School Locator Maps," then enter your address. Parents also can call the student assignment office at (727) 588-6210. Students entering kindergarten, sixth and ninth grades will be assigned to their zoned school.

• To reserve a seat at your child's zoned school, parents should go to that school or any nearby school to get a User ID and password, then log in to the student reservation system on the district's Web site. Parents can request a different school during the open enrollment period April 19-30.

• Finally, parents need to visit the assigned school with a copy of the student's birth certificate or other proof of identity/age, proof of residency, immunization records and a physical examination certificate within the past 12 months.

Schools to auction surplus stuff

Need a piano? A backhoe? A big lawn mower?

Pinellas County schools are hosting their annual auction Saturday at the Walter Pownall Service Center, 11111 S Belcher Road, in Largo. Preview items from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday.

Among the unneeded equipment to be auctioned: motor vehicles, trailers, industrial machinery, musical instruments, lawn tools and TVs. A complete list can be found at in the "PSC News" box. For information, call warehousing manager Joe Zihala at (727) 547-7125.

Do you know of a young hero?

The district is looking for nominations for its Young Heroes Awards, which recognize students who give back to their community. The program highlights students who serve as role models for others through their contributions to the community and by their deeds and strength of character.

Anyone can nominate any K-12 student who attends a Pinellas public school.

Parental permission is required.

Winners will be featured in video and print programs and receive a $500 savings bond. Nominations, which can be found on the district Web site, are due April 16.

    WASHINGTON — In a bruising setback, Senate Republican leaders are delaying a vote on their prized health care bill until after the July 4 recess, forced to retreat by a GOP rebellion that left them lacking enough votes to even begin debating the legislation, two sources said Tuesday.
