April 10th, 2014 Comments off

With FCAT testing starting on Monday, students from four elementary schools and three middle schools, including Dunbar Elementary Magnet School and Sligh Middle Magnet School, whose magnet theme focuses on health, will pick up several cases of water at Florida Hospital Tampa on Friday morning. The cases of water have been donated by Florida Hospital Tampa in an effort to ensure that students are well hydrated and comfortable as they look forward to doing their best on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test next week.

The students are scheduled to arrive between 9 and 11 a.m. on Friday, April 11, at the loading dock at Florida Hospital Tampa, located at 3100 E. Fletcher Ave. in Tampa.

“We appreciate the support Florida Hospital Tampa provides our students,” said Superintendent MaryEllen Elia. “They recognize the importance of encouraging students to be well rested, hydrated, and to have a good breakfast, so they’ll be at their best.”

To find the loading dock at Florida Hospital Tampa, follow the red and white “deliveries” signs once arriving on the property.
