The Great Kindness Challenge Week -- January 27-31
Attention parents/guardians of juniors:
If your child signed up to take the ACT or SAT here at St. James this spring, I wanted to make you aware of a wonderful opportunity your child have to prepare for this very important test. Letters were sent out to juniors during the week of January 13 through each student's second block teacher.
Test prep consultants from All-In Test Prep will be hosting an all-day session on strategies for tackling and doing well on the ACT and the SAT. Students will learn over 200 testing secrets, test-day strategies, and ways to overcome test anxiety. On average, workshop attendees increase their ACT scores by 2-8 points and SAT scores by 50-200 points when they practice the strategies presented in the workshop. This increase could equate to an improved chance of college acceptance and thousands of dollars in scholarship money. A private SAT or ACT tutor typically charges $80 an hour, so this workshop is a great deal for the same information!
The ACT workshop will be held all day on Wednesday, February 5, and the SAT workshop will be held on Thursday, February 6 in room E-211. The cost of the workshop is $60 per student; however, St. James will pay $40 of the cost for each student. To register for this workshop, please send $20 in cash or check (made to St. James High School) and the bottom portion of the workshop letter (distributed through second block teachers during the week of January 13) to Kelly Vargo, SJHS SAT/ACT Coach. The deadline for registering for the workshop is Monday, February 3. Space is limited to the first 50 students who sign up, so please don’t delay! If you have any questions concerning this workshop, please email Mrs. Vargo at email@example.com.
