Big Splash over TAKS
By texasebeth on September 01, 2011
As I may have mentioned I’m active in the PTO at Charlie’s school. Heck, I’m VP of Ways and Means which is a fancy way of saying I’m in charge of Fundraising. Don’t laugh – it was either that or President.
So moving right along. In Texas we have standardized testing on a regular basis called TAKS. This year they are called STAAR but same old, same old.
Anyhow, the PTO, teachers, and staff made some promises last year to the 3rd – 6th grade students in regards to TAKS testing. The students met the goals in the “All Students” catagories so we scrambled at the last minute to make our promises come true.
Here is the article from our school district’s website along with photos of the dunking booth.
