ACT ASPIRE Testing
9th Grade, Wednesday, April 24th
10th Grade, Thursday, April 25th
The ACT Aspire tests provide students information on their projected ACT college readiness score. By taking the Aspire test students gain feedback on areas to strengthen before their Junior year ACT test.
This is a very important part of their academic growth and we want to ensure a successful experience for all of our students. Your cooperation will help us to achieve that goal. Here are some guidelines:
Students will need their TI 83 or TI 84 calculators, and Number 2 pencils.
Cell phones, iWatches, iPads or other internet devices are prohibited. Leave them in your car- do not bring them into the testing room.
Get a good night’s sleep the night before.
Eat a good breakfast to start the day.
Be in uniform with student ID cards for the testing day.
Bring your Quarter zip or dress code appropriate sweatshirt
Report directly to the Auxiliary Gym by 7:55
Bring your pencils and calculator

From Mrs. Kristovic: On Tuesday, April 30, we will be offering an ACT Learning Event for students and parents at 5:30 p.m. in the library. This event will allow parents and students to look at growth over time, discuss how to interpret a student’s score, and present options for continued learning. This event is for 11th grade parents and students.
From the Junior Class: We are coming ever closer to prom! To purchase tickets, students AND parents must sign the dress code acknowledgement (attached). Please have this ready for ticket purchase!
From Athletics: Spring sports fans. You may have noticed a new chain and pylons up blocking off direct access to the football and baseball field. While we understand this may cause an inconvenience, we need to make sure direct access is available to emergency vehicles. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
From the Cafeteria:
Senior Lunch Balances: All Senior student lunch accounts must be paid in full by Friday, May 10, 2019. Senior students who will be purchasing lunch the last couple of full days before exams may pay with a positively funded lunch account (that is, enough to cover the cost of the food they are purchasing) or, in cash. Senior students will not be allowed to go negative after May 10, 2019. The Cafeteria will coordinate with the Business Office regarding any remaining lunch account funds.
Checking Your Student’s Lunch Account Balance: Parents can choose to sign up to monitor their student(s) lunch account balances in the following way: Get on Lumen Christi’s Website. Click on the Student Life tab. Drop down to School Lunch. Scroll down past the photos and menu. There you will find several links of interest. Choose the link that says “Accessing Your Student’s Lunch Account” This will lead you to the sign in page. You will need to know your student’s Lunch ID number. For questions please contact Linda Leigh, Cafeteria Manager: (517)787-0630, ext. 243 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
