Please understand that the Mesquite Wildcat Incentive Reward recipient and their parent/guardian must sign the form.

NOTE: Rewards can be redeemed August 2nd, 2018 (the first day of school) through October 5th, 2018 (the last day of the first quarter). Contact Kim Templin in the administration office for more information. This incentive program is intended ONLY for Mesquite students who are taking their high stakes tests for the first time and the incentive reward is valid for the school year following qualifying.

All students who are exempt from taking one AzMERIT test and earn one qualifying score will only receive 1/2 of the reward selected.

**The window for reward redemption may be extended depending on when the Arizona Department of Education releases the AzMERIT/AIMS scores.**
