The Iowa Assessment is given to all students in grades 3-11 between March 29 and April 11. In preparation for the statewide exam, Stowe Elementary School held a Rock the Test assembly on Friday. The East High band/color guard was on hand to fire up the crowd, and K-2 students cheered on their 3-5 grade school mates in preparation to succeed on the Iowa Assessment.
