Land O’ Lakes, FL – (April 17, 2015) – Fifth grade students from Woodland Elementary School are performing with the Florida Orchestra at the Straz Center in Tampa on Wednesday, April 29, as part of a Carnegie Hall sponsored program called Link Up.
The students will play recorder and sing along with the Florida Orchestra such classics as “The Blue Danube” and “Nocturne” from the opera A Midsummer Night’s Dream. There also will be pieces that involve listening, which provides students with the privilege of hearing a professional orchestra and the chance to practice proper etiquette while attending a professional performance.
Students will be practicing during music classes with teachers Debbie Edwards or Shannon Hollenbeck Monday through Thursday from 2:30 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 10:45 a.m.
The chance to travel to Tampa to perform with a professional orchestra is an opportunity these students never have experienced, and may never again. The school purchased books with the Carnegie-designed curriculum and secured buses to travel to the event. To pay for these expenses, they received a grant from the Suncoast Arts Fest, conducted a Fill-the-Boot school-wide fundraiser, and set up a booth at the school’s Spring Carnival. The entire cost is approximately $1,260 and they have raised about $840 so far. They still need to raise about $420 to cover busing and the remainder of the cost for the books.
Donations are welcome and can be mailed to or dropped off at:

Your responses will help guide efforts to improve services and results for children and families.
This survey is for parents of students with individual educational plans (IEP) receiving special education services during the 2014-15 school year. All information provided will remain confidential. You may submit one online survey for each child receiving services.
The 2014-15 ESE Parent Survey is open from February 1 – May 31, 2015. The online survey can be accessed at http://www.esesurvey.com.
School Choice Open Enrollment
The District School Board of Pasco County’s School Choice Open Enrollment initiative provides an opportunity for a Pasco County student to attend a public school outside the student’s assigned boundary area, as well as public schools in neighboring counties, as long as the requested school is not critically overcrowded. The parent/guardian of a student wishing to attend a school outside his/her boundary area must submit a School Choice Open Enrollment Application to the District School Board of Pasco County during the established open enrollment period. Submitting an application does not guarantee that the student will be approved to transfer to the requested school of choice.
School Choice Open Enrollment is available online February 1- March 1
