ACT Prep

Ms. Kate Penziner who used to teach science at Smackover High School has started a new blog to support students who are preparing for the ACT test.  Ms. Penziner sent this note about her blog (ACT-A-Day):


Happy summer! You’re here because you are probably thinking about taking the ACT sometime soon. Maybe you already took it, maybe you have no idea what it’s like — either way, doing a little bit each day this summer will go a long way to helping you prepare!

– Ms. Penziner
