Students Prepare for CATS Exam

Students across the Commonwealth are preparing for the annual CATS exam.

To help the kids get motivated in Allen County, the High School had a pep rally with a dance competition, and a tug-of-war contest.

The teachers say they want the kids to be motivated to do their best, and they have a strategy in mind to make sure the kids don't get burnt out.

Instead of taking the test for four straight days, they're going to take the test every other day.

There are also incentives like early release time, and a pizza party for students who attend the test every day and arrive on time.

The testing window lasts until April 29.

Teacher recommend your children get a good night's sleep and eat breakfast before they take their test.
