11th Grade ACT Day: Tuesday, February 27

On Tuesday, February 27, all 11th-grade students in the State of Utah will be taking the ACT. This is a free opportunity for all juniors to take the ACT! **Your junior is already registered; you do not need to do anything to sign them up for this ACT administration.**

Administration of this test will follow all ACT standards, so in order to create the required testing environment for our juniors, we have set aside this day for ACT testing only. Tuesday, February 27 will be an ACT-testing-only day for our school. There will be NO SCHOOL that day for students who are not in 11th grade.

Due to the need for an undisturbed testing environment, ACT does not allow us to have any students on campus who are not part of the ACT administration. Please make other arrangements for your students in grades 7, 8, 9, 10, and 12 on February 27 as we will not have space or supervision available for them on our campus that day. As this is an official ACT administration, we will be unable to interrupt testing to check students out. We appreciate your help in ensuring a good testing environment for our juniors!

To help students prepare for the ACT, free ACT practice materials are available (for students in all grades) at http://www.shmoop.com/utah/. Find our school from the alphabetized school picker, click “Let’s Go”, and create an account – the student Magic Word is ARCHES. (Contact your counselor for more details or if you need help creating your account.)

Host Families Needed for Foreign Exchange Students Next Year

Is this your year to host a foreign exchange student? SHARE is currently accepting applications for volunteer families who are interested in hosting an exchange student in their home for the 2018-19 school year. Foreign exchange students come for ten months (the full school year) and make a great contribution to our school, our community, and to your family. Students are carefully selected and screened, and they come with their own health insurance and spending money — all that is required from you is a bed, food, and welcome.

If your family is interested in hosting an exchange student next year, please contact Wendy Waldes for more information: wendywaldes@gmail.com or 801-709-3583.
