| ||Good Luck on the FCAT! |
Over the past month, to help show their support, as well as, to encourage and inspire students at local south side elementary and middle schools, student-athletes from all sports created and delivered over 300 FCAT Cards. Several student-athletes also put together over 1,200 “Whatever it Takes” goody bags for students in grades 3rd-11th who have been preparing to take the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT), which began on March 10th. Each card, hand written and crafted by student-athlete’s from various sports teams, and each goody bag filled with words of encouragement and motivation, were given to those students or classroom who needed the most improvement on the FCAT.
The FCAT is a test given to Florida students to measure what they know and are able to accomplish in reading, writing, mathematics, and science. The test is part of Florida’s plan to improve student achievement. It measures challenging content standards, called the Sunshine State Standards. All public school students in Grades 3 through 11 are required to take the FCAT. The FCAT is given to students each year in February (Writing) and in March (Reading, Mathematics, and Science).
