On this day, seniors will be taking part in their second Portrait of a Graduate day. Students have been receiving information about this upcoming day through their resource periods. Attendance is very important on this day since make-ups will not be available.
Attached to this email is the ACT calculator policy which is designed to ensure fairness for all examinees, avoid disturbances in the test room, and protect the security of the test materials. It is the responsibility of the examinee to bring a permitted calculator. A permitted calculator may be used on the math test only. The current ACT calculator policy is available at http://www.act.org/calculators-policy.html.

Census - Countdown to Census
Census at a Glance
The census is much more than just a head count. It provides a picture of our nation that helps determine where to build new schools, hospitals, and businesses; how federal funding is distributed; and how congressional seats are apportioned. It also helps us see how our communities have changed over time. That’s why an accurate count is so important.
Video: ‘Your Community is Counting on You’
Kids Count Poster
Every 10 years, everyone living in the United States is counted in the census by the U.S. Census Bureau. The count is used to distribute power at every level of government and distribute more than $675 billion each year to communities across the nation. Decisions about Indiana’s future – and the dollars for it – come down to counting everyone, especially YOU!
