11th Grade ACT: Tuesday, March 3

This Tuesday, March 3, all of our 11th-grade students will be taking the ACT. This is a FREE opportunity for all juniors to take the ACT! 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. **Your junior is already registered; you do not need to do anything to sign them up for this ACT administration.**

Tuesday, March 3 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 March 3 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!

When To Pick Up Your Student

We anticipate that students will finish testing around noon. Please make arrangements to pick up your student by no later than 12:30pm.

What if my student can’t be there on March 3rd?

If your student is absolutely unable to test on March 3rd, he or she will be rescheduled to test on the statewide ACT make-up date: Tuesday, March 17th. (Please be sure to email our attendance office at to excuse your student’s absence on March 3rd.)

Is there anything I can do to help?

Yes! We still have a few open needs for breakfast and snacks for the 11th grade ACT next week. Helping to make sure our students are fed and ready to do their best on this test is a great way to get your volunteer hours! If you can help, please sign up at our SignUpGenius:

Parent Guest Speakers for 7th Grade CCA

Parents of 7th grade students: We are engaged in a brief study of sample jobs and careers in CCA. We have learned about job descriptions, education requirements and salaries for various occupations. Now we would like to learn more about what parents of our class members do daily in the world of work!

We invite you to visit our classes on a Thursday (March through mid-May) and share information about your job, career and occupation. Please indicate a date when you would be able to come to school and which class periods you can visit. If possible, please visit all four classes on the day when you sign up. A class period is 45 minutes long.

The students will anticipate your visit and prepare some questions for you. We can send you the questions before your visit if you would like. Generally, we want to know what your daily job is like (a day in your life), what you like about your job, what are the educational requirements for this job, any disadvantages about the job, and what students can do now to prepare for a job like this. Thank you so much for your time and concern for the students at Maeser and their future in the world of work.
