Students at Carr Elementary and Fulton High school will complete state assessments May 7-11. To kick-off testing week, assemblies were held Carr Elementary and Fulton High School.
At the beginning of the Carr program, Specialist David Lucy, 913th Engineer Company, presented Carr Elementary a flag that was flown over Camp Beuhring, Kuwait to show appreciation for Carr Elementary student’s support during Operation Enduring Freedom. Students in Mrs. Tiea Davis’ fifth grade class have participated in a letter writing program with the 913th Engineer Company this school year.
Awards were given to recognize students scoring at the proficient or distinguished level on the 2010-2011 state assessment. Students were given silver or gold medallions for exemplary scores. After the medals were distributed, the audience watched “THE CHEER”, modeled after the popular television series, The Voice. Students in grades K-2 created and performed testing cheers to encourage and entertain the audience. A last minute entry from the teachers stole the show and brought everyone to their feet.
At the conclusion of the program, students scoring distinguished on last year’s state assessment were recognized by Jan Large, PTO President. The students were treated by the PTO with donated pizza coupons from Domino’s and a limousine ride around Fulton. Carr students lined the side walk and cheered their classmates off to recognize and celebrate excellence in education.
