The ACT®, one of the leading US college admissions test, is coming to Middle Creek on Feb. 28th, for ALL 11th graders and FREE of Charge. A question I get a lot is: “which test should I take, the SAT or the ACT”? My answer to that, being the cheapskate that I am is: you’re getting the ACT for free and during school hours, so make the most of it and do your best. Here’s a great resource to help you prepare:
But what if you need to retake the test? Should it be the ACT or the SAT? That depends on the type of test taker you are and the types of knowledge that interest you most. To better understand each test I found the following article to help explain the differences between the ACT and SAT:
And Veritas Prep has a fun, easy, 15 question quiz to help you decide:
Whichever test you decide to take, good luck in your college prep journey.
Course Registration for the 2018-19 school year will be from March 1-30. All students received a course selection checklist from their second block teacher. This year, students will register in the media center during second block class. Please complete your registration checklist with your parents prior to coming for your registration time. Click here for course registration material.
ALSO, are you a rising Senior?
Student Services has applications for rising Seniors who:
- are interested in late arrival or early release for the 2018-19 school year
- want to become a teacher’s assistant for the 2018-19 school year
- would like to do an internship for next year
All applications can be picked up in Student Services and must be dropped off no later than March 30th.
Attention 11th grade students, the ACT will be administered on Feb 27. In preparation for the ACT, all students must have a photo ID to present to be admitted to their testing session. Students who do not have proper ID must complete the ACT Student Identification Letter by Feb 20 and turn it into student services. If you need this form please pick it up in student services. Please be aware that All 11th grade students will attend the pre-bubble session on Feb 20 and you will receive more information from your first block teacher by Feb 19. If you have any questions please see Mrs. Penuel.
Tips to prepare for ACT
All 11th graders will meet in the commons on Feb 20 to complete the “pre-test portion” of the ACT. At this time, they will have the opportunity to select up to four colleges and universities to receive their ACT scores. Students may wish to discuss these choices with their parents/guardians ahead of this session.
Students can create a free ACT profile account from home and can begin ACT’s college and career planning self-assessments.
This conversation is just as important as the birds and the bees.
You need to talk with your children and students about healthy body image. But, how can you talk to them if you aren’t sure what healthy body image is? We have been flooded for decades with what we ‘think’ healthy body image is, only to religiously count calories, go on fad diets, exercise profusely and feel guilty for eating a dessert. The media are saturated with focusing on weight loss and depicting skinny girls and boys – because this is what we should be. We also give excuses for thinking it’s okay to skip meals: “I’m too busy to eat; I shouldn’t eat as much today because I ate a lot last night; I need to fit in those pants.” This is the core of American culture’s perception of what healthy body image is.
To have this conversation, it needs to happen with you first. Use these tools to facilitate exploration within yourself so you know how to convey this to your kids
