March 21st Firelands High School Special Schedule

All members of the Class of 2018 will be taking the ACT on Tuesday, March 21st. The test will begin at 8 am and last until approximately noon in several rooms at FHS. All Juniors, whether they are at FHS, the LCJVS, or LCCC full-time will be offered this free opportunity to take the ACT.

Freshman, Sophomores, and Seniors will not have school that day, because of the vast resources that administering the ACT take. Seniors will be able to shore up final details with college visits, or other career readiness opportunities. Freshman and Sophomores are expected to either partake in a job shadow or to take an initial college visit that day.

All Juniors should review the informational letter that was sent home near the end of February. This letter gave details to all Junior students and parents about this exciting free opportunity that is offered to each person in the Class of 2018.
