The SIUE Office of Educational Outreach will be offering ACT and SAT prep courses during the Spring semester 2019 and we would like to invite THS students to attend. We understand that the state has switched to administering the SAT, but some schools/students are still participating in the ACT Test and we are happy to offer both opportunities to your students. We will offer 1 ACT session and 2 different SAT sessions for students to choose from. The information for the courses is as follows:

ACT Review: This in-depth ACT preparatory course reviews and teaches concepts needed to prepare for the ACT. It condenses lessons into six sessions which begin with a pre-test to assess the group’s strengths and weaknesses. The sessions are then individualized to effectively prepare for the test. Please bring a calculator and No. 2 pencil to each session.

 One session is available: 

Tuesdays and Thursdays, 5-8 p.m., March 26-April 11

SIUE Main Campus, Technology Management Center

Registration Link: https://usi.siue.edu/emc00/register.aspx?OrgCode=10&EvtID=5591&AppCode=REG&CC=118100326903

Problems with your locker, please find an administrator or custodian in the hallway.

Parking Permits for 2nd Semester can be purchased in the high school office. Cost is $37.  Remember to park in your assigned spot going forward. If you do not have a parking permit, you MUST park in the outer U of D lot and sign your vehicle in at the office.

Student Activity Passes can be presented at home athletic contests (excluding regionals/tournaments) and fine arts events for admission.  The symbol (AP) will be located on a student’s THS ID and must be presented at the gate for admission.  The “Student Activity Pass” also covers participation in multiple extra-curricular clubs and activities after school. The cost of the pass is $40* and may be purchased in the HS office.

THS Non-Athletic/Extracurricular fee is for students who want to be a part of a club/activity and not have to pay the extra money to come to athletic/fine arts events. This cost is $30 and may be purchased in the HS office.
