Jefferson Elementary School aimed to prepare its third-graders for standard testing during a pep rally Tuesday. Third-graders, along with students in grades 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 11, begin the North Dakota State Assessment tests Monday.
Guidance counselor Judi Hillier said the pep rally encourages students to prepare for the tests in a number of ways.
The kids were divided into groups of about five students and given a test tip that they had to create a picture out of.
"They came up and read their test tip, and then we went through all of them," Hillier said. "Following that, the five third-grade teachers did a cheer."
