The ACT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. Overall, the higher you score on the ACT and/or SAT, the more options for attending and paying for college will be available to you. To prepare for the test, we have purchased Princeton Review ACT Prep books and ACT Flash Cards. They are available for pickup at the Media Center this week between the hours of 8:30 am – 3:00 pm. We have a limited number so they are on a first-come, first-served basis.


Students, there have been numerous schedule changes in the past two weeks, please do the following: 1.Check PowerSchool in addition to Canvas. If a student is in Apex, you will not see it on the main Canvas page but they will see it in the PowerSchool account. 2.Students need to check their school email. If they are in Apex, there are instructions from Ms. Ritter about how to log in.
