LYNN HAVEN, Fla. (WMBB) – Lynn Haven Elementary School shows support for Grades 3, 4 and 5 students ahead of important state tests.
On Friday afternoon, students from Kindergarten to Grade 2, along with administrators and teachers lined the halls with supportive signs, cheers and music.
The parade was held to celebrate those who are currently taking the Florida State Assessment Tests. The test is a statewide exam that covers the math, reading, and science these students prepare for throughout the year.
“We believe our students are prepared,” said Maegan DeMoss, Deputy Principal. “Our teachers worked very hard and our parents also worked very hard to prepare them at home.”
“[The parade was] just to thank them, encourage them and motivate them with their families, ”said director John Cannon. “Testing has already started, but it’s restarting and we just want to encourage it.”
Administrators said they hope the parade and popsicle celebration gives students a positive vibe as they continue testing next week.
