Last winter our 5th and 8th graders took the TCAP Writing Assessment. Mrs. Carlton our librarian helped the Reading/Language Arts teachers work with our students preparing them for the test. She also offered the students an incentive for high achieving scores on the assessment. Fifth grade students with the highest scores are as follows: Tessa Aly, Brianna Humphries, Emelia Hurt, Ann Elise Jackson, Tyler Jinnette, Jamie Lawless, Hailee Lewellin, Jordan Parrish, Kinsley Wells, Kyra Barker, Caroline Colvin, Maggie Corlew, Zachary Styler Jinnette, Jamie Lawless, Hailee Lewellin, Jordan Parrish, Kinsley Wells, Kyra Barker, Caroline Colvin, Maggie Corlew, Zachary Stuedeman, and Olivia Zerkle.
