State Testing is always a disruption to the school day.  This year’s “testing season” has been particularly disruptive because of the additional testing days.

Or has it?

Take a look at some of the amazing work (via Tweets) we’ve been doing with kids…despite the disruption to the regular school day! 

(Remember: Culture is what we Celebrate, Anticipate, and Ignore.  ADE is put things in their proper category!)

(Scroll through the tweets…)

Go on. Smile!
