TESTING….WEEK TWO!!!

Floyd MS will be conducting Milestones testing during the week of April 9-13 as well as the week of April 16-20.  It is imperative that students eat a good breakfast, drink plenty of water and get plenty of sleep during this time in order to do well on these tests.  It is a scientifically proven fact that the brain needs rest, proper  nutrition and water in order to perform at a high level!  Don’t let this be the reason that you don’t do your best!

 

We will shift our focus to fitness for the next several weeks in an effort to finish the year strong!  Stretching, push-ups, sit-ups and jogging will increase our muscular strength, muscular endurance and our cardio-vascular fitness!
