McGruff the Crime Dog, Local DJ's, a Rider High cheerleader routine, and a slam dunk contest were all part of a special pep rally put on at Washington Jackson elementary designed to get the kids excited for the upcoming Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills or, TAKS test.
The festivities kicked of with an amazing showing of slam dunk skills featuring MSU basketball players. After a speech from local DJ's, the Rider High cheerleader squad performed a couple of numbers. Children in grades kindergarten through 6th then took turns presenting TAKS tests chants and dances that they had been working on.
Principal Sandy Camp ended the festivities by thanking everybody who came out.
