The Tiger's Roar!

"A National Magnet School of Distinction"

I hope this edition finds your month off to a great start! Next week is only a four-day school week for our Tigers as there is no school on Friday, March 13. The following week they will have off for spring break.

ACOVID 19 (Coronavirus) Information 
Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) is in constant communication with the Florida Department of Health regarding the spread of COVID-19. OCPS is taking the threat of a COVID-19 outbreak seriously and is dedicated to ensuring proper protocols are in place to protect our staff and students.
The CDC and The Florida Department of Health are your best source of information about the disease:

2020 Parent Survey Closes Shortly
Our annual Parent Survey will be closing at the end of next week. The survey is completely anonymous to ensure privacy so if you have a student at Tildenville and still have not taken it, kindly do so today. We rely on parents' opinions for our school improvement efforts.

Volunteers Needed!
Just below you will find requests of our school community for help with two important upcoming special events: 1) Field Day on March 12; and 2) FSA testing proctors during April & May. If you can donate a little of your time it would be of great benefit to our teachers and students. Thank you!

I hope you enjoy looking over some of our highlights and successes from recent weeks. Have a great weekend and please do not forget to turn your clocks ahead 1 hour Sunday for Daylight Savings Time.

In Tiger Pride,

Agathe Alvarez 
Proud Principal
