March is here and Spring is on its way. Many of our student are enjoying FSA Camp or Language Camp on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. I am so proud of them and their teachers for the work they are doing to ensure that each student masters the standards and is ready for their assessments. Many of you have asked about Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) for this year and how the pandemic will affect testing. We will have tesFng for all students in Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grades as it is required for Florida Public Schools. The dates for the tesFng window have been extended by the State and a schedule of test dates specific to Discovery Elementary , with all the information, will be shared with you in March. Students who are learning from home will need to come in to school to test.
Spring Break is fast approaching. There is no school the week of March 22-26, 2021 so everyone may enjoy the well-deserved Spring Break. When we return from the break, we will have our annual spring book fair. This year it is a virtual book fair. We hope students will enjoy shopping for that special book. For many students buying books is a fun event and helps to motivate them to want to read.
If you have not done so already, now is the time to schedule a parent teacher conference. Please remember that two conferences are required each year. Your child's teacher is looking forward to meet with you. Feel free to contact him/her and request one if you have not had yours.
Your Proud Principal,
