    Hi TJ Family!

    I hope you are having a great weekend.

    We had excellent participation last week for our first Florida Standards Assessment testing sessions. Thank you to the Duval HomeRoom parents for bringing your children to the building to test. The following FSA tests will be given this week:

    • Third Grade ELA for Brick and Mortar students on April 15th and 16th
    • Fourth Grade Writing for Brick and Mortar and Duval HomeRoom students on April 15th

    I have attached the full FSA schedule again to the e-mail version of this message.

    For Duval HomeRoom, we will follow the same drop-off and pick-up procedures at carport that we followed for PMA3. Drop-off will be from 8:30-8:45 and pick-up will be from 11:00-11:15. The exception will be the dates of the Writing test, when pick-up will be from 11:30-11:45. These dates are noted on the FSA schedule.

    Parents should have received a notice that Spring Pictures will be taken this Tuesday, April 13th.

    Part of our mission is to make our students college and career ready. It is never too early to start planning for your child's education after high school. I have attached a flyer in English and Spanish regarding the Florida Pre-paid college plans.

    Tomorrow we will launch an online fundraiser that involves sending e-mails and making purchases online. Students will bring home packets with instructions, and we will post a video about the fundraiser. I will provide more details about the fundraiser in a separate message.

    Lastly, I would like to announce that Teacher Appreciation Week is May 3rd-7th. This is the perfect time to express gratitude to our teachers and support staff for all they do to make Thomas Jefferson an enjoyable place for our children to learn. Have a wonderful week!
