Dear Osteen Families:
The month of March is upon us and the end of the third quarter is approaching. This quarter will finish on Thursday, March 9 which is the start of Spring Break for our students. Classes will resume on Monday, March 20 with the beginning of the fourth quarter. Our Main Office will be open on Friday, March 10, but then will close the following week (March 13-17).
As we enter the testing season (late March through early May) I want to remind the parents of our 4th and 5th graders a key point: in order for a 4th or 5th grader to receive a score in the English Language Arts (ELA) of the FSA the student must take both the writing component and the reading component for an ELA score to be reported. Keep in mind that all 3rd, 4th and 5th graders will be tested from late March through April in the areas of reading and math. Also, our 5th graders will take the state science assessment in early May.
I hope you enjoy this wonderful month of March and the opportunity to spend time with your child during Spring Break.
