ACT - Wednesday, February 20th
This test is for all juniors and seniors who have not taken the ACT yet.
Students will be taking the assessment in the gym, and we will start check-in right when the first bell rings, around 8:05a.m. Students need to make sure that they are on time. If students are late, they will not be able to take the test and will be expected to go to their normal classes.
Students do not need to print off a ticket for the test. However, students do need to bring some #2 pencils and a calculator if they wish.
Phones and any type of electronic devices are not allowed in the testing room or during breaks.
All three of the schools have at least 1 of the new Active TV boards, and staff members are working to get them installed into all of the classrooms. The new boards are like tablets! They are touch screens, and they have the same features of a tablet. Thank you to the school board for getting these, and thank you Mark Haefke for installing them!
This is a video of the new boards and what they do:
Mrs. Seely-Francis entered Breauna Jewell's art piece called "Holding the Moon" into the Sargent Art Youth Art Month Contest for a possible scholarship and prize. Be sure to visit the Sabatini Gallery at the Topeka Public Library from February 11th to March 10th to view Breauna's entry.
Jase Preston is receiving a $30,000 check from the United States Navy. He is going to follow the nuclear engineering program and the money is a signing bonus.
Jase said, "I am excited to start the Navy and travel places!"
Jase wants to start the Navy because it will allow him to travel and go to school for free. He had to take a few tests in order to get accepted into the program. He first had to take the ASVAB and after that he had to take a classified nuke test. He did really well on his tests. Jase is receiving the 30 grand check at his signing as a bonus for joining that particular program. He will receive this money after he graduates his program.
"We are very proud of Jase for pursuing his dreams," remarked Kain Fink.
This summer Jase has to attend an eight-week boot camp in Chicago. He will be learning military orders as well as physical improvement. After he graduates from college, he is hoping to work on a submarine. His job will consist of working on the nuclear power engine to keep it running.
Royal Valley is proud of Jase's accomplishment!
