From the MSHS Cross Country Facebook Page: "Shoutout to the JV girls for taking the championship, led by Mary Anna Trimble's 2nd place finish. Anna Rushing was also a top 10 finisher. Ethan Buck finished in the top 10 for the JV boys, as did Zach Granger for the varsity boys, and both boys teams won 2nd place trophies in their divisions."

Standardized Testing Coming Soon!

October 3: Pre-ACT (all 10th graders)

October 10: PSAT (only those who signed up)

November 7: Workkeys (all 12th graders)

The Pre-ACT on Oct. 3 and The ACT on Oct. 27 are two entirely different tests. The Pre-ACT is given to all 10th graders in the State of Alabama during the school day (FREE TO STUDENTS). The ACT on Oct. 27 is a national test open to any students who register and pay (deadline has passed). I'm including this note due to calls and questions we entertained last week.
