District-wide we are doing something different for the end of level testing this year. We are going to have the end of level testing over seven school days. We are doing this because the ninth graders will be taking a pre-ACT test that is timed. The ninth grade students will get a score back at a later date that is a predictor of how well they will do on the ACT test. We want you to be aware the 9th graders CANNOT take concurrent enrollment classes at the high school if they choose to opt out of these exams. Testing begins Tuesday morning at 8 a.m.
This Saturday on Apr. 20, there will be a color guard open gym for any student who would like to be a part of the team, or is thinking about being a part of the team. Any student who will be going into their 8th grade year (2019-2020 school year) is eligible for the summer team, and any student who will be going into their 9th grade year, along with any high school student, is eligible for both the upcoming summer team and the upcoming fall team. The open gym will take place at Payson High School starting at 8 A.M. and will go until 11 A.M.
