Who could imagine test scores would be this fun?
Three Central Elementary pupils got a taste of what academic achievement can bring, when they were treated to breakfast at Panera Bread by their principals. Head Principal Cherie Horner and Assistant Principal Chris Bernard took first-graders P.J. Bandasak and Evelyn Socorro, and second-grader Aighea Cooper, to the popular eatery for showing the most growth over this school year on the NWEA MAP test of academic progress.
Three older students were treated to a reward of a different kind for having the school’s top scores on the assessments. Fifth-graders Emily Hall, Vince Kemp and Trent Schalow each got to serve as Central’s honorary principal for a day. The honor came complete with name tags and, in Trent’s case, a very principal-looking vest and tie.
