EF Report

Thursday March 5, 2010

Attention 11th graders:

Your MME journey begins on Tuesday March 9th.  Please report to the cafeteria at 7:20 a.m. with these supplies:

–          2 soft lead #2 pencils with good erasers

–          Acceptable photo i.d. = school i.d., driver’s license or passport

–          A calculator that you are comfortable with; including “fresh” batteries.  (If you are borrowing from a Math teacher, do this Monday after school!)

–          A watch if you wish to pace yourself

Remember that all 3 days are important.  While the ACT measures college readiness, your proficiency on the WorkKeys/MME proves your employability and indicates mastery of High School Content Expectations.  Be prepared and give your best effort since these scores are a requirement for graduation as well as an integral part of your permanent record J !

Attention 9th and 10th graders:

The EXPLORE and PLAN tests identify student aptitudes and help our staff develop appropriate individual coursework and career planning.  Both tests help to identify student strengths and weaknesses in comprehension and problem solving skills.  Increasing your scores from EXPLORE/PLAN/ACT documents your academic ability and persistence for colleges and future employers.  Keep your eyes on the future; be on time and prepared next Thursday morning (March 11th) .  These scores ALSO become part of your permanent record and course placement, so be sure to give your best effort!  All girls interested in trying out for the girls soccer team should attend conditioning after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and meet in the gym. Tryouts will be held on March 15th so come run and be prepared for the season!
