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.”

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.”
In addition to the dress-up days, a pep-rally was held on April 16 for students in grades 3-6. Teams of five students from each homeroom competed in four different western themed relay races.
All of the students had fun watching and participating in the activities. Ms. Myers’ homeroom was the winner of a pizza party for completing the races with the fastest time overall.
