On Friday, April 16, Navarre Elementary School held their annual Test Pep Rally in the school gym, as a kick-off to Ohio Achievement Assessment testing that began last week for students in grades three to six. TPS Assistant Superintendent Dr. Romules Durant hosted a challenge of “Are You Smarter Than a Specialist” in which a team of students took on the art, physical education and music specialists (pictured). Unlike last year, the specialists emerged victorious earning the school’s assistant principal a pie in the face.
