7th Grade ACT Aspire Testing–Thursday, April 6
7th Grade ACT Aspire Testing will take place on Thursday, April 6. This on-line test measures academic achievement in the areas of English, math, reading, science, and writing. It is aligned with the ACT College and Career Readiness Standards, making test results meaningful by connecting your child’s score to specific skills and knowledge that are important to success in college and the workplace. The students will spend the majority of this day taking the test. In order for students to do their best, it is important that your child gets plenty of sleep at night and a good breakfast on testing day. Also, please be cognizant of the tests when scheduling appointments or other events that may take your child out of school.
