Crunch Time!

It's almost time for the Super Bowl of education - the Florida Standards Assessments (FSA). It's a time to show what we know and show off all of the great skills we've acquired this school year. Our 4th-7th graders kick us off by taking their writing assessment on Monday, February 29, with 3rd grade readers to follow on March 30.

Come to the FSA information night this Thursday at 6pm for more information on the state assessment!

Best Regards,
