News and Notes from Academie Da Vinci
As we move into spring we are always working with our students to prepare them for success in academics and in their social and emotional growth and development. Yesterday we had a lengthy training with the grade 3-5 teachers regarding the upcoming Florida State Assessments. Here at Academie Da Vinci we are proud of the A School rating we achieved for last year and we are working to earn that again. Important components of student success on any test are: a positive attitude, the ability to manage stress and an understanding of maintaining their focus and effort over the testing time. Our students will have a snack and stretch break before testing and another stretch break during each testing session. They’ll have recess after each testing session. Here is the testing schedule for Academie Da Vinci: (in accordance with Pinellas County Schools). Please make sure your child has a good night’s sleep and a good breakfast on testing days. Make – up tests will be given for any absent students on the days following the original test days.
