On Tuesday, March 3 during Homeroom A all juniors will meet in the front lobby at 11:07am to walk with Mrs. Marble to see the test site at the BJCC where they will take the ACT test on March 10. This is a new location and it’s important all juniors walk over to see the location with us so they will know where to go on test day. Students will return at 11:30am. Junior ambassadors please note that Mrs. Little has excused you from the Ambassadors meeting so you can attend the walk.
