Although it may seem that FCAT and kindergarten have nothing to do with each other, at New Berlin, we believe all the students should be involved in the upcoming FCAT. Our goal is to support our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders as much as possible as they prepare for next week's FCAT testing.
After the intermediate grades completed their FCAT Pep Rally this morning (complete with real cheerleaders and a middle school band and drumline), they marched the halls for our annual FCAT parade. The primary grades made inspirational posters, stood in the halls cheering, waving pom-poms, and encouraging our friends with smiles and high fives!
Each primary class also paired up with an intermediate class to provide a little extra dose of support. Our class created note cards, bags filled with various pieces of treats, and a friendly reminder: "Don't fall to pieces... Shoot for Success!"
