Van Duyn students in third, fourth and fifth grade have been working hard to prepare for the New York State Tests. At Van Duyn we wanted to get our students pumped up and excited to show what they know, so we decided to have a Pep Rally. On Monday April 4th, the whole school showed up at the gym to celebrate the third, fourth and fifth graders. Each grade came with a chant or song to encourage the students. During the rest of the week, younger grades brought in candy, made signs and wished the older students luck on their tests. The New York State ELA assessments are from April 5-7th and the Math assessments are next week from the 13-15th.
