FCAT Spirit Week


In an effort to support our third, fourth and fifth grade students during their intensive week of FCAT, we had our first annual "Spirit Week." The FCAT (Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test) is the standardized test used in the primary and secondary public schools of Florida. The kindergarten, first and second grade students enjoyed getting dressed up each day last week. On Monday, they were farmers (because of our theme), Tuesday was mismatched clothes day. Wednesday was wild hair and sock day. For Thursday, we pulled out our oldest Chets Creek tee-shirts (we get one every year designed for the theme), and for the finale, on Friday the children came dressed as rock stars. At this age, our first graders know that the FCAT is a big test and that they will be taking it one day. But for now, they just enjoyed the excitement of Spirit Week and being a part of it all. Rock On!!
