Peebles Elementary students have been preparing for AIR testing by participating in dress-up days.
All students have been excited to participate to promote a positive atmosphere for the upcoming testing. The dress-up days took place the week prior to testing and will take place every first day of testing on a weekly basis until testing ends.
The dress-up days kicked off on March 13, with Crazy-Tie Day-“We won’t get tied down by the test.”

Other days of kick-off week included the following: School Spirit Day-“School spirit in the AIR,” Twin Day-“Be sure to double-check your answers,” Western/Boots Day-“Stomp out the test!” and Hat Day-“Put your thinking cap on for the test.”
