Students honored for high achievement
By Susan O’Neill
KANELANDâ€”Proud parents, teachers and principals filled the Kaneland High School library on Oct. 13 to honor students who received high scores on recent standardized tests, including the Illinois State Achievement Test (ISAT), WorkKeys and the American College Test (ACT).
Fifteen students who received a 2009 ACT composite score of 30 or higher were presented with a certificate and public acknowledgement of their accomplishments. Those who received the highest scores in specific subject area tests, including math, science, English and writing, were recognized as well.
Three kindergarten through eighth-grade students attained perfect scores on portions of the 2009 ISAT, 32 Kaneland High School students attained perfect scores on the WorkKeys Applied Math portion of the PSAE, and 13 high school students attained perfect scores on the WorkKeys reading for information portion of the PSAE.
Interim high school principal Greg Fantozzi congratulated the students. He also thanked the parents for their continued interest and participation in their children’s education.
â€œThis is no small achievement,â€ he said.
