WES teachers took to the school stage, pom-poms in hand, to lead cheers and play music while Principal Sherry Park danced across the floor with the WES Bulldog. And in the midst of all this activity, cheers of "Beat That Test," "Take Down TCAP," and "Bulldogs - Best at Tests" arose from the crowd. The WES TCAP cheerleaders also gave the top ten ways of acing the test, including the #1 suggestion: Try Your Best.
Joining the Westhills "cheerleaders" on stage were real cheerleaders; several Marshall County High School cheerleaders made an appearance to conduct a few "test" acclamations of their own.
By the end of the rally, the Westhills students were ready to TAKE DOWN TCAP!
The Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) Achievement Test is a timed, multiple choice assessment that measures skills in reading, language arts, math, science and social studies. The students' results are reported to parents, teachers and administrators so they may address the instructional needs of the boys and girls.
