FCAT Testing has been the sole focus for many educators and students in Bay County this week. However, one high school took a little time off from the books to celebrate it's achievements last year.
Mosley High School was awarded an "A" grade for the 2012 - 2013 school year, an improvement from the previous year.
On Thursday afternoon, the Student Government Association threw an "A-School Celebration" for the school's 1,700 students. The carnival themed event included inflatable obstacle courses, various games, food, and even gave students a chance to pie their teachers or peers in the face.
Douglas Dick, the SGA Vice-president, said the event was part of the Association's Project Dolphin Pride, an effort to boost school pride and success. "It's such an awesome opportunity that we have to be proud of our accomplishments as studious students as a whole," Dick added.
School is out for teachers and students on Friday for Good Friday. FCAT Testing will resume next week for some grade levels.
