April 28, 2011 - The classes at Leonard Elementary took an hour out of their day Monday to encourage their fellow third grade schoolmates, who would embark on the TAKS test Tuesday morning. The Pep Rally included cheers from the LHS Cheerleaders, skits from each grade and even some teachers, musical presentations, and even a karate demonstration. The kids enjoyed dancing and getting pumped up to do good on their exam, which must be passed in the third grade to move to fourth grade.
