PSSA Buddies Visit Testing Classrooms to Cheer On Older Classmates

Posted in: Wilkinsburg School District News

This week, our younger classes stepped up to cheer on the students taking the PSSAs in grades 3-6, and they are doing a great job encouraging their older classmates. As a part of an “PSSA Classroom Adoption” activity at Kelly Elementary, each of the testing classrooms were assigned a PSSA Buddy Classroom from one of the younger grades.

As pictured below, Ms. Kalo’s Pre-K adopted Ms. Polosky’s 5th grade and made a colorful banner to hang outside their classroom and remind them to do their best. They also visited their buddies Monday morning before testing began and brought encouraging cards, “Oh the Places You’ll Go” #2 pencils and erasers.

Ms. Polosky says, “It is so nice to know that our younger friends are thinking of us!”
