ELIZABETH, N.J- Approximately 2,000 people are expected to gather on Tuesday, October 23, 2012, for a large-scale celebration of yet another Elizabeth Public Schools’ academic achievements. The Perfect Scores Award Ceremony, beginning at 7 p.m. in the Dunn Sports Center at 151 Pearl Street in Elizabeth, will honor students who earned 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.
This celebration helps to accentuate why Elizabeth Public Schools is considered the number one urban school district in the State of New Jersey.
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 district is proud to continue making tremendous strides in academic excellence, having increased from 23 perfect scores in 2007 to a record 331 perfect scores in 2012!
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.
All media are welcome to attend this event.
