Dear parents/guardians,

Good morning everyone. We have a busy week ahead.  This is Teacher Appreciation Week, last week for spring sports, and we begin our next phase of FSA (State) testing.  On Tuesday and Wednesday (May 4 and 5) all of our cadets in brick and mortar will take the Reading and Language Arts FSA.  This assessment is added to the FSA Writing to determine each cadet’s achievement level.  They will take session one on Tuesday and session two on Wednesday from 08:30-11:30 am each day.  Make ups will be on May 7.

For my cadets in DHR (Duval Homeroom) we have two tests this week.  On Thursday May 6, cadets scheduled in Comp Sci 3 will test.  You have the option to test this Saturday, May 8 at 08:30-2:00pm for the Reading/Language Arts FSA. Cadets will complete both session 1 and 2.  Please contact Ms. Brooks (brooksb1@duvalschools.org) to confirm your attendance. If you can come during the week, your opportunity to test at school is on May 10 and 11 for math and May 13 and 14 for Reading and Language Arts.

I am attaching two test schedules, one for brick and mortar and one for DHR.  Please make sure you are looking at the right schedule for your cadet.

It’s important that our cadets do their very best on each of these assessments. The results are used as part of a cadet’s final grade in the course and gives us information about where to place cadets in the next year. It’s also important to do well because scores are used to determine our school grade. 

As an incentive this week, all brick and mortar cadets who show up this week to take both sessions of the Reading/Language Arts and they give it their all, they will be eligible for a partial dress down day on Friday, May 7.  Partial dress down means they will be able to wear any shirt and shoes, but must wear the Digi blue pants.

Please make sure to show your teachers some love this week.  It's been a very challenging year and my teachers would appreciate any support and kindness you can share with them.
