Blackville school rallies before test

Macedonia Elementary School in Blackville held a pep rally April 27 to motivate students for the ACT Aspire test the next day. 
Each grade performed a song or dance to rally the whole school. 
“Motivating students to do their best on ACT Aspire is very important and I applaud the staff at Macedonia for taking the time to place emphasis on students being at the top of their game and ready to show evidence of all that they have learned,” said District 19 Superintendent Dr. Teresa Pope. 
Some students won bikes donated by members of the community.
