District Announcements
District Survey on School Start Times is ready for responses from Monroe County School District Parents

In answer to parents’ concerns School Board members have proposed that the district conduct a survey to get input on school start times.  The survey response period begins today; it is available in English, Spanish and Haitian Creole.  It is very important that parents complete the survey at the link below to express their thoughts on this important topic. You need to fill out only one survey even if you have children in more than one school. The survey will direct you to questions regarding both schools. The preferred method is to take the survey online; however, paper and pencil versions of the survey will be available at your child’s school as well. As a convenience, if you are unable to complete the survey at home, you may go to the Parent Education Center at each school to complete the survey on a computer or you can complete a paper and pencil version as stated above. School staff will advise you how to complete the paper and pencil version. We would like to get as many parents to participate in the survey as possible, so that we will have the best information to use for planning any changes which may be in order. You will assist us in responding to your needs by completing the survey today. The survey link is below. The deadline for completing the survey is Dec. 22nd. Thank you.

781 Pounds Lighter!

Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup in September was a success!  Roughly 40 students, staff and parents helped to remove 781 pounds of trash from the mangroves behind OUR SCHOOL!   The trash removed is in addition to about 900 pounds removed last May. We are making a dent but trash remains.

Teens 4 Oceans and Mrs. Rosenow would like to give a shout out to all involved, especially science teacher, Jacob Poelma and his wife. Brittany.  Thanks to the NHS, for providing snow cones, and the Student Council, for buying pizza, after the event. Good work Canes!   It takes a village!! 


Student Portal and Parent Portal News
Parents and Students - 
The Monroe County School District has implemented a new student information system which includes replacement of the Pinnacle Gradebook. The FOCUS Student Portal is now available!  Student can sign on through the link at the top of the page under Students - FOCUS Student Login, and student login information has been provided to school administrators and gradebook managers.  The FOCUS Parent Portal is expected to be available in mid-September.  There will be a registration process for parents to have their own accounts to access the portal.  With that account, they will be able to view student grades and attendance.  A single account will be used to access information on all students in a family.
Thank you for your patience as we transition to a new system.  We hope that you will find the additional resources available through the Parent Portal helpful in monitoring your child’s academic success.

Gallup Student Poll Oct. 25-27
Coral Shores will participate in the Gallup Student Poll October 25th -27th, 2016. Gallup launched the Gallup Student Poll in 2009. Gallup provides analytics and advice to organizations around
the world. The Gallup Student Poll is a brief, 24-item survey available on the web for students in grades 5 through 12. One time per year in the fall, the survey is provided at no cost to schools. The Gallup Student Poll includes the following themes:
  • Engagement is the student’s involvement in and enthusiasm for school.
  • Hope is the ideas and energy students have for the future.
  • Entrepreneurial Aspiration is the talent and energy for building businesses that survive, thrive and employ others.
  • Career/Financial Literacy is the information, attitudes and behaviors that students need to practice for  healthy participation in the economy.
The Gallup Student Poll gives students a voice in building great schools, and results provide schools with important, actionable information beyond standard measures, such as grades and test scores, to help schools make kids ready for the future. Please visit the Gallup Student Poll homepage on the web at  http:/  to view the survey items and learn more. To date, there have been over 4 million completes of the Gallup Student Poll.
This survey is anonymous and voluntary. That means Gallup cannot identify your student, and your student’s individual responses will not be shared with anyone. Only grade-level and school-level information will be shared with our school. Your student does not have to participate in this survey. There are no consequences or penalties if your student does not participate. Email Gallup Education at if you have questions about this survey, or contact your school principal.
If you do NOT agree to have your student participate in the Gallup Student Poll. Please complete a form available in the front office.
