Happy Thursday Juniors and Seniors!
1) The deadline to sign up for the October ACT test is tomorrow. You can register at www.actstudent.org Our school code is 160265. If you need help with this, please let me know. The cost is $42.50. If you qualify for free and reduced lunch, you are able to get a waiver and can test for free. Please let me know if you would like for me to look into this for you.
2) The deadline to get signed up for the PSAT is tomorrow. I will need $15 in either cash or check form to get you registered.
3) On Monday, the Juniors will be taking the Iowa Youth Survey during Chemistry/Foundations of Chemistry. This is a survey given every other year to grades 6, 8, and 11 and asks you questions about your feelings and attitudes about a wide variety of topics including the food you eat, your thoughts towards school, drugs/alcohol, etc.
4) Seniors,I am starting to do one on one conferences with all of you regarding your plans for after high school. If you have a spare 5-10 minutes and it's after 1st hour, please stop in and we can get that done.
As always, if you need anything from me, please don't hesitate to ask!
