Report Cards and FCAT Testing Reminders

Originally, report cards were supposed to go home today; however, they will not be given out until next Friday, April 19th.  DCPS feels that it would be better to hold them until after the first week of FCAT.  We were just informed of this information so we appreciate your flexibility and understanding.  The Award Ceremony will be on Thursday, April 25th from 2:15-3:15.

FCAT Testing will begin on Monday, April 15th.  Here are a few reminders to ensure that your child is prepared for this exciting week.  Your child should:

  • get a good night's sleep each night.
  • eat a healthy breakfast (Denny's Grand Slam Breakfast is not suggested as it sometimes can cause tummy discomfort). 
  • come to school on time between 8:30 and 9:00.
  • leave all digital items such as watches and/or cell phones at home if possible. A cell phone that rings could invalidate all tests. 
Parents: Please don't forget to encourage your child to do their best, remind them that you are proud of them and they are totally ready for this week. No worries! Also, if you haven't already, please send in a love note for your child for each day of the FCAT. (Monday and Tuesday will be the Reading FCAT, Wednesday and Thursday will be the Math FCAT). We will make sure that the students receive the love notes each morning.  

Thank you for your continued support. This is a very exciting week for us and we are already so proud of each student! :)
