Our big state-mandated test that will determine whether our school is adequate enough is next week. On Monday, we are having a pep rally for the test. When I heard that, I nearly fell off my chair laughing! Earlier this year, we had student-made banners all around the school asking students if they were ready for the big test (a different one) and posters with practice test questions. We are trying so hard to get the hype up!
I just about fell out of my chair again when I did a quick search only to find that other schools do pep rallies, too!
