Toward the end of every school year, students in 3rd grade through 10th grade are required to take the FCAT test. FCAT stands for Florida Comprehensive Achievement Test. An easy way to help your student improve his performance on the FCAT is to make sure all of the FCAT vocabulary is well understood.
The following list of words was taken from an FCAT preparation book. Start by defining the word strategyas a skillful plan to understand what is read. Each week, have your child learn some of these words by defining the word in a way they understand and using it in sentences until they really get it. Work on a part of the list each week until you finish the whole list.
Please join us on Sunday, March 24th at 6 PM for our Annual Intuition Fashion Show fundraiser! The event will be held at ROMA – N.Y.C. at 410 Cleveland Street in downtown Clearwater.

Eddie Powell, the Community Learning Center Program Director of Broward County, was honored by the Broward County School Board for his innovative “I Got Paid 2 Read 2” program. This program motivated hundreds of students to turn off the TV and pick up a book! Eddie brought together community business sponsors who provided the funding needed for the food, certificates, $2 bills and promotion of the program.
Eddie has run the Community Learning Center after-school tutoring program for the past two years. The Community Learning Center state office in Clearwater is currently working with Eddie to establish an after-school program in Broward County which will provide leadership and character education as well as art and physical fitness. Congratulations Eddie and Broward CLC!
