Happy (almost) September!
Welcome to the (almost Wednesday) Tuesday Edition! I hope this email finds you emerging from the fog of back to school business. We’ll keep it short and simple this week…
1. Registration for the ACT @ PCS is now closed. If you missed sign ups, you can simply register for the national test on October 22nd HERE: https://www.act.org/
