  • ACT CLUB: Why not build your ACT knowledge, confidence, and understanding a little bit each week instead of cramming right before the test? ACT club takes only twenty minutes, and we finish so early, you won’t even have to miss practice! Testing is timed, and students are assisted in improving their testing speed. When time is up, either Mrs. Smyth, Mrs. Wallace, or Mr. Buchanan is available to answer questions and help students analyze their answers. ACT club meets TUESDAYS from 2:50 to 3:10. It is important to show up to ACT Club as frequently as possible before you take the ACT test.

NHS Feedback Survey Thanks

Thank you to those of you took the time to fill out the National Honor Society Induction Feedback Survey.  Overall, the event was well-received.  The most enjoyable parts were cited as watching your student walk across the stage and the Lou Holtz video!  At the same time, there was also room for improvement.  I came away lots of great feedback about: applications, lighting, video size, taking pictures before the event, and giving Junior students a certificate or something tangible they can take home.  Thanks again for filling out the survey!
