Attention parents of Sophomores, your child received his/her ACT PLAN test scores on Wednesday in homeroom. Included in the packet are a detailed score report, the test booklet, and a guide for interpreting scores. Please go to ACTstudent.org for additional information on the PLAN test and preparing for the ACT.
There will be a Coffee with Ann Clark, on Tuesday, December 1st at Randolph Middle School beginning at 5:30 pm until 7:00 p.m. This is an opportunity for you to meet Superintendent Clark and hear an overview of the district thus far. Also Superintendent Clark is interested in hearing from you and she welcomes your ideas and suggestions to support academic success for the district. Be sure to mark your calendar for this event.
As a reminder, please do not forget student attendance is critical. Students can only miss 10 days in a class, more than ten days will result in students needing to recover hours missed. The best plan of action for your student is to be at school every day.
Due to the short week, there will not be a weekly message next Friday, therefore, I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy your time with family and friends.
