On Friday, April 11, students at Floresta Elementary participated in their annual Tunnel of Encouragement. Students in grades K-2 formed the tunnel, and waved balloons, banners, and pompoms, while chanting “Do Your Best on The Test,” as students in grades 3-5 filed into the cafeteria. Once in the cafeteria, students received insightful and inspiring words from Principal, Ms. Floyd and Assistant Principal, Mrs. Menikheim. Third grade teachers performed a skit incorporating test taking tips and a motivational song. Fourth grade teachers shared words of advice and encouragement, followed by a video collage of students hard at work taken over the many weeks preceding the test. Fifth grade teachers entertained students with a series of very cool science experiments to the song “Happy.” Administration provided every student with their very own FCAT t-shirt imprinted with the words, “Be Calm and FCAT On.” Good luck, Floresta Dolphins!!!
