This week some of our seniors have been speaking to 9th grade health classes about high school life. They share information and experiences about classes, activities, homework, teachers, scheduling, setting goals, planning for college, peer pressures, and risky situations. They are doing an amazing job! It’s hard to believe that just a few short years ago, they were the freshmen listening to the class of 2012 seniors. A lot of the same information is passed on year after year. Some get, and some need to keep hearing it :) Great job, seniors!

This week’s ACT word of the week is “disheveled.” The reason I chose this is because I was curious how to say it. I love  that dictionary.com speaks the word for you. I heard someone say dis-he-veled – and I have been thinking about it ever since. I totally thought it was dish-eveled – and guess what?! Dictionary.com agrees with me! :)

Disheveled: 1. hanging loosely or in disorder; unkempt:disheveled hair.  2.untidy; disarranged:a disheveled appearance.
