A 6 Week FCAT Test Prep Program
CROP is partnering with the SFC's Community Outreach and East Gainesville Instruction to offer a 6 week FCAT prep program during the months of January and February of 2014; just in time for Spring testing! This program aims to educate, enlighten, motivate and uplift our participating students and serve as a tool for our students to receive specialized help with the FOC and FCAT in a refreshing interactive manner amongst their peers. This program will consist of 6 specialized Tuesday tutoring and 3 bi-weekly Saturday sessions targeting specific problems. Because we are tracking our students progress throughout the program, I ask that participating students commit to attendance to ALL events. Also, to assure adequate materials and personnel, you must RSVP with me by January 15th at email@example.com to hold your child's seat. Email me today!
