The cheers were loud and proud during the California Standards Tests (CSTs) Kickoff Assembly at Fern Bacon Middle School.

 Fern Bacon Middle School had the highest gains in English language arts and math of all middle and K-8 schools last year.

At this year’s assembly, eighth graders were recognized and honored for working hard last year and using their “Test Strong” strategies.A big round of applause also went out to all the teachers who worked hard to prepare students.

Principal Nancy Purcell also acknowledged how smart the seventh graders are and challenged them to rise to the occasion. In addition, to help students prepare for the CST, S.T.A.R. Academy accepted 120 college-bound students to attend an eight-week Saturday program designed to extend learning.

Parents were invited for a special luncheon, hosted by AT&T and City Year, to celebrate and recognize this accomplishment. Congratulations!
