Field Day

Hello Jupiter Parents and Guardians! Save the date!


On May 23rd, I’m planning on having a small Field Day for our Jupiter students. The field day will be broken down into three sessions. There will two sessions in the morning. 5th and 6th grade will come out first followed by 3rd and 4th grade. Kindergarten through 2nd grade will be after lunch. Each session will last about 1 hour and 15 minutes.


Special events like this cannot be done without the help of volunteers. If you are a registered volunteer and would like to help out on Field Day or would like to find out how to become a registered volunteer, contact Casey Wanca at 321-952-5990 or email Wanca.Casey@Brevardschools.org. You can also contact me, Coach Mecum at Mecum.Dennis@Brevardschools.org.


I look forward to hearing from you!

FSA Testing Dates and Information

FSA Reading Grades 4-6 - May 3rd & 4th

FSA Math Grades 3-6 - May 5th & 6th

FSA Science Grade 5 - May 16th & 17th


Please review the following policies with your student before testing:


  • Electronic Devices—Students are not permitted to have any electronic devices, including, but not limited to, cell phones, smartphones, smartwatches, and Bluetooth/wireless headphones/earbuds, at any time during testing or during breaks (e.g., restroom), even if the devices are turned off or students do not use them. If your student is found with an electronic device, his or her test will be invalidated.
  • Calculators—Calculators are not permitted during Grades 3–6 Mathematics tests.
  • Testing Rules Acknowledgment—All tests include a Testing Rules Acknowledgment printed in the student’s test and answer book that reads: “I understand the testing rules that were just read to me. If I do not follow these rules, my test score may be invalidated.” Prior to testing, test administrators read the rules to students, and students acknowledge that they understand the testing rules by signing below the statement in their test and answer book.
  • Discussing Test Content after Testing—The last portion of the testing rules read to students before they sign below the Testing Rules Acknowledgment states: “Because the content in all statewide assessments is secure, you may not discuss or reveal details about the test content (including test items, responses, passages, and prompts) after the test. This includes any type of electronic communication, such as texting, emailing, or posting to social media sites.” Please make sure your student understands this policy prior to testing and remind them that “discussing” test content includes any kind of electronic communication, such as texting, emailing, posting to social media, or sharing online. While students may not share information about secure test content after testing, this policy is not intended to prevent students from discussing their testing experiences with their parents/families.
  • Working Independently—Students are responsible for doing their own work during the test and for protecting their answers from being seen by others. If students are caught cheating during testing, their tests will be invalidated. In addition, FDOE employs Caveon Test Security to analyze student test results to detect unusually similar answer patterns. Student tests within a school that are found to have extremely similar answer patterns will be invalidated.
  • Leaving Campus—If your student leaves campus before completing a test session (e.g., for lunch, an appointment), he or she will not be allowed to return to that test session. If your student does not feel well on the day of testing, it may be best for him or her to wait and be tested on a make-up day. Please remember not to schedule appointments on testing days.
  • Testing Accommodations—If your student has an Individual Education Plan (IEP), a Section 504 plan, or is an English Language Learner (ELL) or a recently exited ELL, please contact the school to discuss the testing accommodations that will be provided for your student.
