Important test dates to put on your calendar.

Juniors:  First, all juniors will take the ACT on Tuesday, March 3rd as part of our Michigan state testing.  Keep in mind that Mid-Winter break for PPS is Friday, February 27th through Monday, March 2nd, so it is very important that your student return from vacation in time to be prepared for this important assessment.  Second, the ACT WorkKeys test will be given on Wednesday, March 4th.  Third, juniors will take the Michigan-based curriculum assessments in mid to late April.  Please keep your eyes and ears open for further information with much more detail about spring testing for the class of 2016.

Freshmen and Sophomores:  You will take the ACT Aspire test, formerly known as the Plan, in mid to late April as well.  The Aspire is essentially an upgrade to the Plan test in that it aligns with nationally-driven Common Core standards and also provides a more accurate and extensive form of benchmarking for student achievement.  More details on the Aspire are at http://www.discoveractaspire.org/.

We appreciate your patience as we gather further information to share with you all.  Please watch our website, the Mustang Minutes, and even the daily announcements for more communication in the near future. 

Listen up students--important ACT information:  We are once again announcing that students have free access to ACT's online test prep website.  Normally you students would have to pay a fee to gain access to this website, but our GREAT PTO has given our school a gift and purchased this for us.  Letters have been mailed home to all of our 9th-11th graders that give you login instructions, and how to navigate the website.  Juniors especially-this is an awesome way to start NOW to prepare for the ACT, which you will be taking here at PCHS next March.  And you sophomores and freshmen, we recommend you login and begin to prepare as well, as you will be taking the ACT Aspire test in the spring.  So check the mail at home, and hang onto those login instructions, but if you need help, please see Mr. Phillips in the Study Lab.  Studies have shown that the more you prepare for the ACT ahead of time, the better you will do!
