Hello Ninja Nation,

Preparing Your Computer for FAST Testing

FAST testing for grades 3- 5 (to be scheduled with your student's teacher) will be starting this week through 9/21. Before testing we need your computer to take a quick test to make sure IT is ready for testing day. Please be sure to do this prior to testing.


FAST Testing - Mandatory for all Students

FAST (Florida Assessment of Student Thinking)

This is a progress monitoring assessment that will be given three times a year. It is a B.E.S.T. math and reading standards-aligned assessment that is adaptive, providing teachers, students, and families with information on student progress. For students in K-2, the test is called STAR and they will take this test remotely on a different testing platform than the 3-5 students. Teachers will be sending out detailed information about dates, times, and log-in information. Students are required to participate in this progress monitoring assessment. Results will be communicated within ten days of testing.

Happy Birthday Ninjas!

Live, In-Person Lessons

We are excited to offer a more blended approach to learning this year. Live in-person lessons will be scheduled monthly. Students are invited to visit our eSchool headquarters, located on the Crews Lake Middle School campus to join in the learning and fun. This will be a drop-off and pick-up event. We do not have the space for learning guides to stay with students this year. Students will be dropped off at 9:30 and picked up at 1:30. Please send your student with a lunch and drink. Lunch will not be provided. Park meet-ups will be scheduled when the weather starts to cool down. Teachers will provide information about those events on their announcement pages in the homeroom course. We are looking forward to seeing our ninjas more often in person this year!
