The ‘Arizona Statewide Achievement Assessment for English Language Arts and Mathematics’ – AzMERIT – continues next week on Tuesday, April 21st at PFFS-University and on Wednesday, April 22nd at PFFS-Downtown. Monday, April 20th is a school holiday – ‘Early Earth Day‘ – at both schools (school not in session). Thank you in advance for getting your young person here everyday, with a good night sleep, relaxed, refreshed, and ready to demonstrate what they know and are able to do.
Also, a special thank you goes out to all of our parents who provided breakfast snacks this past week on testing days. Your contributions were very much appreciated! It has been our tradition at Paulo Freire to break up the state testing over multiple days and to create a calm and caring milieu by beginning each day with a breakfast snack and mindful movement. If you have not yet adopted a testing day to provide some part of the snacks, please contact your school (PFFS-Downtown 352-0057 and PFFS-University 624-7552) and let us know what you can bring next week.
