ACT Practice: ORHS begins our Spring 2020 ACT series after the Winter Break as we lead up to the March 31 Schoolwide ACT for juniors. On Wednesday, January 8, at 2:00 PM in the Amphitheatre we will focus on the Reading sub-test in a session that should last for about 90 minutes. Sessions this spring will look a little different from the fall sessions: we will first learn about a high-value ACT standard, then we will take the sub-test, and then we will examine the results during that session.  Please sign up (so that I have a test and answer sheet for you) by emailing and indicating your interest. Although we want to draw as many juniors as possible, all ORHS students are welcome to participate. (1/7-1/8) – A. Etheridge
