ACT Pre-Test Demographics Wednesday

An ACT Pre-Test Demographics will be given to all juniors on Wednesday, April 22nd. Students need to have a photo ID. If they do not have a photo ID, there is a form on the ACT website that can be filled out, or they can see Ms. Creech to have it printed. They will also need a no. 2 pencil (no mechanical pencils or pens). Students will be completing all demographics during this time, so if they would like their score to be sent to a school outside of Alabama, they will need to bring the code with them.

Balfour representatives will be in the lunchroom today and tomorrow. If seniors have not paid their $100 cap and gown graduation fee, they can make their payment and get their caps and gowns at this time. We do not collect money for Balfour.
