SAT/ACT Prep

Southridge High School has been working on aiding students in studying for and improving on the ACT and SAT. The following are several options made available to all students: through the north hallway we have ACT and SAT wall decor which not only depicts the importance of such tests, but also has weekly questions made available for students to practice. Answers are then posted on Friday of each week to check for understanding. Ms. Hasenour has hosted 7:00 a.m. morning sessions to study for the math portion of the test. She offers these sessions when students make requests for additional help. Also, Ms. Hasenour has google classrooms set up for both the ACT and SAT math portions. These classrooms contain links to websites where students can receive extra help for studying, example practice tests in pdf format from Khan Academy and the Collegebooard which can be printed, and detailed answer keys for each of the tests in pdf format so that students may check their answers.

CLUB NEWS

FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes)

The Southridge High School FCA hosted a competitive and fun-filled game of Christmas Charades Monday, December 12th in the auditorium. Three teams were headed by our FCA Exec Team officers, Harrison Steckler, Justin Reed, and Jayce Harter. The spirited event came down to the wire. In the end, Team Harter and Team Reed were announced as the winners. Christmas Charades involved actions like building snowmen, catching snowflakes on tongues, and baking Christmas cookies. Overall, it was a nice last gathering before the holiday break.

It's a Win, Win

So far, the waste of 4,177 plastic bottles has been eliminated by students using the water bottle filler. Students are helping the environment by eliminating waste and are also helping themselves by making the healthy choice of drinking water.
