ACT with Writing (11th Grade) on Tuesday - importance of ACT scores!
This Tuesday, April 19th, our 11th grade students will take the ACT in the band room.  Testing will start at 8:00 and  last until 12:30 (approx).  I visited the 11th graders today to pass out the free College Planner from Potential Magazine that we received at College Night on Tuesday at Jeff State. Our Career Coach, Kim Benson, hopes that we can have the group that presented back again soon.

I shared with the Juniors about the importance of the ACT and information we heard at the meeting last night.  The presenters discussed that 80% of scholarship money comes from Merit awards from schools.  These are awards based on GPA and ACT score.  An ACT score can help you with a full ride to institutions in our state and beyond.  Students have been preparing during acceleration for the ACT, but please encourage them to study at home and do their best Tuesday.  The difference in ONE point on their score can be thousands of dollars of tuition!

Please call the office if you have any questions.  :)
