We had a parent call the school yesterday, alerting us of a phone call she received, about her son taking the ACT test. The caller told her they would send ACT prep materials for $200 and then when he returned the materials the money would be refunded. The caller knew that the test day was March 7, and her son is going to be taking it on that date. GRHS has not uploaded the names to ACT yet, so it seems strange that the caller knew that. We just want to alert our parents and other communities of this potential issue. Here are a couple articles that could help provide more insight to testing scams that ramp up this time of year. This first one mentions the SAT and not the ACT, but it still gives a better explanation of what the scammers are trying to do. https://www.bbb.org/article/news-releases/23883-bbb-scam-alert-watch-out-for-sat-prep-scams This news report from Ohio is about a year old, and it provides advice to protect your child's credit in addition to the basic scam concerns. https://www.10tv.com/article/news/local/protecting-your-teen-from-identity-theft-act-scam-calls-pick/530-132957b2-d387-469a-89ff-64e1b2ea752e

Tuesday night the Tigers played the 2nd place team in the Kaysinger, the Tipton Cardinals. The Cardinals had a balanced attack with six of their team scoring in double digits. The Tigers played hard, but struggled with help defense and ultimately lost the contest 78-42. The Tigers were again led in scoring by Weston (10) and Logan Dove (9).

The Tigers were led in scoring by Weston with 24 and Kamryn Hoos with 9. Last night the Tigers met a talented Sacred Heart team in Sedalia.
