The PTO will be serving power smoothies to scholars between 7:00-7:20 on Monday morning before AZ Merit tests.  Come early to enjoy one!

AZMerit Testing is April 2-5.  More than ever before, the school is greatly affected by the scores that our scholars receive.  While we continue to keep our teaching philosophy to not “teach to the test,” we would like to ask families to help take these tests seriously and encourage your scholars to do their best.

We will be offering the following incentives to our scholars.  Scholars will receive:

-A snack before testing if they show up on time the day of the test.

-A ticket for a free dress down day if they attend all necessary testing days/times and take test seriously.  Teachers monitoring the test will take note of good behavior during the test and the time taken to complete the test.   The dress-down day will occur the next week.

-Scholars will receive a 5% increase in their final math or English letter grade at the end of the semester (or when scores arrive) if their score in that area improves from last year.

-Scholars will receive 10% increase in their math or English letter grade at the end of the semester (or when scores arrive) if they pass or exceed in that area on the AZMerit.  (Scholars will receive a maximum of a 10% increase in the grade, they cannot receive both the 5% and 10% increase together).
