There will be no school on Thursday, Nov. 8 for freshmen, juniors and seniors. However, sophomores will be taking the PreACT in preparation for the ACT that they will take next year as juniors.

 

Sophomores will be taking the PreACT in preparation for the ACT that they will take next year as juniors.

 

“I’m a little bit nervous, but if it’s not taken for a grade or anything I’m not as worried about it,” sophomore Iriana Trotter said. “I’m more worried for the real ACT next year.”

 

Breakfast will still be served at Southwest from 7:15-7:45 a.m. Students will be able to start checking in at 7:45 a.m., this will be where they will receive the room number that they will be taking the PreACT in. The doors to the academic wing will be open at 7:50 a.m. and students will report to the room number that they received at check in. Testing will begin shortly after at 8:00 a.m.

 

“I’m a little scared, but I’ve taken most of the classes I need and I think I know everything I need to know,” sophomore Jake Lamarre said.

 

Sophomores will need to bring four items: they will need their completed inventory sheet, student ID, one or more #2 pencils and an approved calculator. If a student does not have an approved calculator they can bring, the proctor may be able to provide them one for the test if there are any available.

 

Students are to leave their phones at home, in a locker or in their car. If a phone is seen during testing or during the break, even if not in use, the phone will be confiscated and the student’s test will be voided.

 

“You don’t want to jeopardize other kids’ learning environment,” Mr. Jim Danson said. “You can live without the phone for four hours. It’s not going to create this detriment to your life, it just creates lots of chaos and distraction. Please, my advice to all of you is leave your phone in your car.”

 

The test will last from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. There will be no school the remainder of the day for any student as Southwest will host state volleyball.
