LARGO - Imaginations of fourth- and fifth-graders and recycled pieces of cardboard combined into an arcade of games as the Country Day School celebrated the third annual Global Cardboard Challenge Oct. 10.

Rachel Piper is a junior at Largo High and her mom, Amy, is a teacher at Country Day School, at 131st Street in Largo. As part of her school service project, Piper got 40 fourth- and fifth-graders at Country Day to help her. Their challenge was to see what they could accomplish with just used, recycled cardboard.

“It is an engineering project and it is imagination-inspired - the kids have complete freedom,” Piper explained.

CLEARWATER - There’s a new way to learn math in the Countryside area, and it’s for both students who are struggling in math, those who excel and want an extra challenge, and everyone in between.

Mathnasium is a national chain, but the first north Pinellas location opened in January at 2510-C N. McMullen Booth Road. Largo and Palm Harbor locations are also in the works and should open later this year.

For the past few years, I’ve been wondering just how common it is to have your kids go to the same elementary school you went to when you were a kid.

I never attended any of my parent’s schools, not even their college, which seems to be a little more popular these days. But both of my girls go to the same elementary school I went to when I was younger.

When my oldest daughter started kindergarten at the school, one of the teachers I had in fifth grade was still teaching. When I went to say hello, she teased me and said she was retiring because I made her feel old since my kids were now going to school there.

LARGO - Largo High School math teacher Mike Pease didn’t know what to expect when he received a package from Yale University this fall.

He was surprised to find the Yale University Educator Recognition Award inside, honoring him for positively influencing a member of the university’s freshmen class.

“I just thought they gave me fliers or something to pass out,” he said. “You don’t hear about stuff like this out of the blue.”

By now your children are getting acclimated with the new school year and reacquainted with friends, teachers and school activities. Once your family has established a school routine, now is the time to make education a priority at home. There are several ways parents can instill good learning habits with their children:

- Make sure they do homework before playtime, television or video games.

- Talk with them about their schoolwork and ask if they need additional help.

TARPON SPRINGS - If it feels like the students at East Lake High School are younger this year, it’s because they are. This year, some of them are middle school students.

The students, dressed in polo shirts and khaki shorts, shuffle from class to class on a bell schedule separate from the high school. They don’t eat lunch with the high school students or take gym with them. They rarely even share a hallway. Instead, in a cluster of portables by the baseball field, the East Lake Middle School Academy of Engineering is finding its own identity.

CLEARWATER - The entire student population of Paul B. Stephens School in Clearwater, all 220 students, are special needs students. All have some sort of physical or mental disability, which means they require special help to learn.

The majority of the students at the school are autistic and teaching those children often requires special equipment, which - although necessary - is expensive. That’s where Vera Sheremeta, an Occupational Therapist at the school, comes in. She has been out in the community telling all who will listen about why the equipment is needed.
