We have an amazing Board, from the President to the Delegates!

Due to space constraints in the summer issue of THE BANNER, an article about happenings at Broward Elementary had to be edited for space We thought that because this is a kind of ‘Back to School’ article and important, we would include the full article here on our Facebook page. Please see below for more details:
_________________________________________________

SCHOOL’S OUT FOR THE SUMMER!!
The teachers and students at our neighborhood school are jumping for joy with several weeks of no school! Broward Elementary let out for students on May 25th, teachers a few days later. But, by the time you receive this issue of The Banner, the 2018-19 new school year will be fast approaching. The first day of school for students in Hillsborough County is August 10th, a Friday. Then, parents and guardians be on notice…there are 3 early release days in a row, …August 13th, 20th and the 27th, all Mondays. Don’t forget!

By all accounts, our historic Broward Elementary had a great year with things happening all the time. And thanks to our SSHCA neighbors, our Association was a part of it. There was the Halloween Fall Festival, Holiday parties, the Father-Daughter Dance, the Easter Egg Hunt (thanks to The Ladies of Rivercrest Park) the Broward Annual Spaghetti Dinner (a huge success!), Movies with Moms, trips to ballgames at Steinbrenner Field, awards ceremonies, guest speakers (Tampa Bay Lighting Foundation), a school supplies drive and more. As you can see, there is lots going on; educating students of course, but also some cool events. And more importantly, neighbors are stepping up and participating.

Volunteering at Broward
Some of our neighbors, participated this year as reading volunteers with students and we intend to grow our SSHCA Broward Volunteer cadre in the 2019-19 year. There have been several inquiries about volunteering and information about the volunteer process with Hillsborough Schools is included in the link is below. Those interested in volunteering during the 2018-19 school year should go to the link and fill out the appropriate forms. Once approved, we will accompany you to the school to meet the principal, etc.
Here is your link: www.sdhc.k12.fl.us/doc/1532

2018-19 School Year Registration
Registration for the upcoming 2018-19 school year is currently open. Students attending Broward should register at the school until June 29th, then again from July 9th until the beginning of school.

Parents and students should take advantage of the Hillsborough County annual The Back-2-School Health Fair for all students new to Hillsborough County, July 21st – August 4th. The purpose is to encourage early immunization practices, promote healthy life choices, increase parental involvement, provide information about community services to assist students new to Hillsborough County and meet the needs of uninsured or under-insured families. Events at the Fair target students entering kindergarten through high school. Students are provided with free school supplies such as backpacks, pens, paper, notebooks, and rulers in addition to health services such as immunization, vision screenings and school physicals—all requirements needed to attend schools in the Hillsborough County School District. During fairs, families have opportunities to meet with various school principals & teachers, community support agencies, sponsoring corporate representatives and partake in free school supplies (while supplies last), physical examinations (No Cost), immunizations (No Cost), HPV education tools, meet school administrators, engage community organizations, parent workshops, PTA registrations, and a host of activities that include entertainment, face painters, balloon makers and all around back to school fun!

2018-19 SSHCA School Supplies Drive
SSHCA will again lead a school supplies drive for 2018-19. See our Facebook page for a list of what is needed. Supplies or monetary donations may be made up until August 24th. Drop off ‘centers will be the Red Star Rock Bar, Smoke Signals, both on Florida Avenue and of course at the school (in the computer room).

Broward Open House (WAITING ON DATE)
The Broward Open House will allow parents to meet with Principal Angela Livingston, School Counselor Renick Franklin who is ‘all things happening at the school; grants, partnerships, etc.’ and ‘Mr. E,’ the person who manages the After-School HOST program.

There are lots of opportunities for our members, everything from being a ‘reading buddy’ to assisting with teacher grants. If you are interested in working with Broward, a K-5 school, please contact anyone with SSHCA. We love your participation! Let’s all get involved in 2018-19 with Browardl! Go Tigers!!

Lots of vehicular accidents with property damage this week in Seminole Heights. 2 of these took place in South Seminole Heights. Between road rage, drunk driving, and distracted driving we can’t catch a break. Hopefully the rest of the weekend gets better. Be aware out there and please be safe! ... See MoreSee Less

Auto insurance is really gonna rise in the 03 & 04 zip codes.

What can I/we do to help these two people? I can't imagine it in your own home...

We need to write our city about laying the rules down harder than a citation. Like the case of those chasing each other and endangering lives and the child in the car, sad that something more was not done than a slap in the hand.

Homes and businesses being damaged by vehicles is very serious, concerning, don't recall this happening before.

Watch what part of the house your end you never know if a car will be coming through it

today is Friday july the 13

Wow I was there.It was crazy

Property insurance will too

Unfortunately stopping fireworks on July 4th is a battle pet owners will never win, but we can be prepared and that's what is important. Check out this graphic for some helpful advice.

- If your pet is anxious try some CDB treats from Health Mutt or Smoke Signals Smoke Shop, both are business members of the SSHCA.
- If your pet doesn't have a chip an easy solution is www.petwidget.com.

Good luck and share this post to help other pet lovers!

Animal Coalition of Tampa is open today! You can get a microchip between 10 and 2 today!

Those are some sad statistics. But good for all to be aware of it. Good share babe!

Thanks for sharing! Also, Health Mutt has a microchip scanner for any lost doggies you may find.
