April Assessment Reminders

On Wednesday, April 6, 2016 we will be conducting a FSA Training at 3:00 p.m. in the Upstairs Gold Lecture Hall. All faculty must attend! Important reminders as well as information specific to the FSA Reading and math assessments will be covered.

Next week we will administer the computer based FSA Reading Assessment on Thursday and Friday, March 14 & 15, 2016 to our 6-10 grade homerooms. If you have not inventoried your Chromebooks, please do so by the end of the day Wednesday to ensure they are properly working and that you have enough for your homeroom. If you have problem with the Chromebooks, please contact the technology helpdesk.

For the FSA Reading Assessments, students will need to have earbuds. Please begin reminding students to bring their personal earbuds for the testing on April 14th & 15th.
Also, please plan for students to remain in homeroom through fourth period. If all homerooms have completed testing prior to the end of fourth period, an all call will be issued.

Common Sense Media

During our FSA administration, we will continue having our students works on digital citizenship. Junior homerooms will need to complete the two lessons on Cyberbullying and Digital Drama. As a reminder the videos will need to be downloaded and saved to your desktop computer for viewing. Please do not stream the videos. Also download the PDF version of the lesson. Review the lesson and make copies of handouts, as needed, for completion of the lesson within homeroom.

DISC Village

We have partnered with DISC Village, Inc. to bring a social worker to FSUS. Ms. Pemberton will be working closely with Ms. Pittman and Ms. Kinney to offer small group counseling to our middle school students. Please stop by Student Services to welcome Ms. Brianna Pemberton to our school!
