The ceremony, to be held at the Dunn Sports Center on Pearl Street, will honor students who scored a perfect score on the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) and their subject area teachers who were instrumental in helping these students achieve academic excellence.
The NJ ASK is a state mandated test which is administered annually to third through eighth graders in order to assess their proficiency levels in Mathematics, Language Arts and Science. The number of Elizabeth students earning a perfect score has increased dramatically over the past four years, going from 23 perfect scores in 2007 to 330 perfect scores in 2010.
At the ceremony, perfect score students and their subject area teachers will be recognized by Superintendent of Schools Pablo Muñoz and the Elizabeth Board of Education members, who will present every student and teacher with an award and commemorative poster memorializing their hard work and commitment to achieving excellence.
