ACHS Juniors to participate in ACT Scrimmage December 6, 2012

By Chad Parnell
News from Adair County High School

On Thursday morning, December 6, 2012, Adair County High School Juniors will be participating in an ACT Scrimmage. ACHS administrators, counselors, and teachers believe that students will benefit from the scrimmage by learning about the ACT testing environment and question types.

Many Juniors have already been preparing for the ACT by participating in review sessions during the school's Tribe Time each Wednesday. Tribe Time provides students an opportunity for enrichment, practice, and intervention each week.

ACHS Guidance Counselor Ann Young said, "We believe that the ACT Scrimmage will help students improve their scores by seeing which subject areas need improvement. ACT scores are an important factor in determining if a student is college and career ready."

Thursday afternoon, Juniors will review their scores with ACHS teachers. Students will then be able to better focus their studying to improve their scores. Since all Juniors are also required to take the ACT per state testing requirements, ACHS wants to provide students with this additional feedback. All Juniors will take the ACT on March 5, 2013. - Chad Parnell
