Parents or Guardians of Students in Grade 10,

This Thursday, September 27th, your grade 10 student will be taking the PreACT Test from 7:30-10:30 am during Red 1 and Red 2.  This is an opportunity provided by the Warrensburg RVI District for your student to have a practice experience in preparation for taking the ACT next year in grade 11.  In preparation for test day, please remind your student to do the following: 

  • Get a good night’s sleep on Wednesday evening
  • Eat breakfast on Thursday morning
  • Bring two # 2 lead pencils (not mechanical pencils)
  • Bring a calculator (if your student wants to use a calculator on the Math section of the test)
  • Use the restroom before going to the test room at 7:30 am (so he/she is comfortable during testing)
  • Arrive at school on-time – once testing has begun, students will not be admitted to the test room
  • At 7:30 am, proceed directly to the test room (last names A-Se: Auxiliary Gym, Sh-Z: Library)
  • Relax and do your best!!

West Central Missouri AHEC is now accepting applications for the 2018-19 year ACES program.  This is a year-long program that meets one Saturday each month for health career exploration, career and college prep, 1-1 career planning, guidance and resources, networking, etc. specifically for rising freshman, sophomore and juniors with a strong interest in a health career. 

 The application is due by Friday, September 7

 Benefits of the ACES program include 1-1 career guidance, networking with other students from various high schools interested in health careers, a chance to meet healthcare professionals and students in training, hands-on activities, college and career prep, etc.  Students in the ACES program receive mentoring and guidance not only in high school but throughout college as requested while they pursue their interest in a health training program.

 Application requirements include:

·        Minimum 3.0 overall GPA and the application requires a copy of their transcript (unofficial copy is fine)

·        Letter of recommendation from a teacher and/or counselor or community member

·        One-page typed personal statement on their healthcare interest.  

 There is a nominal cost to participate but students that qualify for free/reduced lunch may receive a scholarship to participate with verification that they qualify.

 There are 15 spots left in the program, so it’s competitive!  Students participating in the KC HealthTracks program should NOT apply for this, as it is already similar in nature.

 

I have attached the application and the workshop dates.  You  are welcome to contact me if you have ANY questions at either email above at stephanie@hccnetwork.org or wcmoahec@gmail.com or call me at 816-617-2353.

Senate Bill 638 established in 2016 requires that each school district provide the address of the website created by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to inform all parents of the students in its district about the trauma-informed schools initiative that includes information for schools and parents regarding the trauma-informed approach and a guide for schools on how to become trauma-informed schools.  Here is the link to the website: http://motraumaschools.com.
