National Honor Society Induction Ceremony

This year’s induction ceremony will be held in the library on March 7th @ 6:30 PM. Invitations have been sent to your students. Dress is business casual for guests and Full Dress for inductees. Light refreshments will be served after the ceremony.

11th Grade ACT: Tuesday, March 12

On Tuesday, March 12, 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 12 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 12 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!

We encourage all juniors to take advantage of this free opportunity to take the ACT with their classmates on March 12. However, parents who prefer not to send their students to campus for testing can choose to opt their students out of this test by submitting a signed Parental Exclusion Form by Thursday, March 7 (to give us time to excuse your student’s absence and adjust our testing room assignments).

Volunteer Help Needed

We are in need of parent volunteers to help provide breakfast and snacks on ACT Day. Please help our juniors perform at their peak by volunteering here: ACT Day Fuel Up for Students
