Tuesday April 2, 2019

Please DO NOT schedule any Appointments on this day for students. We need all Juniors in attendance for the ACT Test.

We will be testing at a location outside of school (more information provided at a later date) and will provide snacks and lunch for the students.

It is a requirement of ACT that students DO NOT Access cell phones even during breaks. All cell phones will be turned in at the start of the day and locked up safely until testing is complete. If you have an emergency and need to get a hold of your child immediately, please contact the school and we will assist you during the emergency.

ACT Prep

In order to prepare for the State Mandated ACT, all students will be enrolled in an ONLINE ACT PREP program. Working with the Schools Curriculum Coordinator and reviewing PRE-ACT data (a test students took last year) students have set goals for their ACT Score. We have extended the deadline for their ACT Prep progress until January 14, 2019.

We want all students to do their best on the ACT.

The State Mandated ACT test for Juniors is April 2 2019. More information will be provided at a later date.

College Visit form

Just a reminder, students need to have a purple college visit sheet turned into the attendance office (Mrs. Tobin) BEFORE they go.

I am also happy to set up the visit, please contact me with 3-4 dates and at least 2 weeks notice.

Senior Class Schedule

We will begin the process of registering for Senior year in January. Please encourage your child (especially those wanting to attend a 4 year college), to choose their classes wisely. They will need to challenge themselves so that they are ready for College Level work. Encourage them to sign up for as many upper level classes and Dual Enrollment classes that they can. This will help to ensure a successful first year in college.
