North Canton Elementary rocks EOG test rally
North Canton Elementary School would like to thank its students, parents and faculty for all of their hard work during EOG testing.
Teachers and staff know testing is a very stressful time for all involved. A "test pep rally was held prior to the EOG's in order to get kids pumped up about testing. The younger students in the school lined the halls with posters and cheered on the third through fifth graders.
The students were encouraged to see the entire school rallied around them. Teachers came together and got the students involved in a song called "What Does the Test Say?" a parody of the song, "What Does the Fox Say?"
Principal Barbee made a grand entrance acting as "Mr. Smarty," and danced and acted out to the song "I’m a Smarty and I Know It," which the students loved.
Fifth-grade teacher Will Hicks acted as emcee. Barbee gave a motivating speech to all of the students reminding them of how smart and capable they are.
When it came time for testing, teachers and staff were pleased and excited to learn the school had perfect attendance for every testing day. This allowed NCE to finish all of its testing in just three days.
The teachers and staff are proud of every student for wanting to come to school, and are thankful for the parents for realizing the importance of testing days and ensuring that their children were to school prepared and on time.
