Once again, Governor Rick Scott and First Lady Ann Scott have invited all Florida students to participate in the Black History Month art and essay contests. Students in grades K-3 have a chance to win a cash prize by submitting artwork and students in grades 4-12 can earn a four-year Florida Prepaid Scholarship through the essay contest. 

These prizes could transform the lives of a student in your class or school, and I hope that you will encourage all of your students to take full advantage of this opportunity to enhance their appreciation for African American History and prepare financially for their own future education aspirations.        
Additionally, students, parents, teachers and principals are invited to nominate full-time educators in elementary, middle and high schools for the Black History Month Excellence in Education Award. 
The deadline for all submissions is January 20, 2017.

FOCUS Parent Portal Registration - Open Registration Extended Until 1/31/17

The FOCUS Parent Portal is a tool designed to enhance communication and involvement for you in your child's education.  This portal will allow you to monitor your child's progress in school by providing timely access to both assignments and grades that are entered by the teacher throughout the grading period. This communication tool will improve your ability to assist your child and to communicate with the teacher if necessary.
In order to create a Parent Portal Account during the December 1 - January 31 open enrollment period, you will need these three things:
1.  Your child's 10-digit ID number - this information is available from your child, from their portal page, or on their report card.
2.  The last 4 digits of your child's Social Security Number.  The SSN must be on file with the school in order for online registration to be completed.
3.  Your child's date of birth.

If you do not have the information listed above, or your child's SSN and/or date of birth are not in the FOCUS system, you will need to register in person at your child's school after January 31, 2017.

Once you have created your FOCUS Parent Portal account, you will be able to view your child's grades and attendance information by visiting the FOCUS login page (also linked under the Parents drop-down menu above).
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.
