FSA and FCAT testing will begin for our 4th and 5th Grade students on February 28th.Please keep in mind that it is important for each of our students (whether they are testing or not) to come to school well rested.Students are encouraged to eat breakfast when they arrive to school. It is very important that students arrive to school ON TIME each day. Please remember that students that arrive after testing begins will not be able to test with their class. If a student arrives to school after testing begins, they will remain in a designated area until testing is complete. These students will have an opportunity to complete their test at a later date.
