Week of October 10

SHARE

Parents/Guardians, Students, and Staff,
We are headed towards a very busy week for our students. On Wednesday, October 12, all students in grades 9-11 grades will be involved in either a Mock/Practice test for the PSAT or the ACT or the actual PSAT.  The Mock Tests were purchased by the school so that our 9th and 11th graders have an opportunity to practice these college preparatory tests. Our seniors will be involved in senior activities outside along with a special senior breakfast. This is a regular school day, and we expect all students to be in attendance at school on that day. We ask that our parents assist us by making sure that your student is present on Wednesday, October 12. The chart below is a summary.

Grade Level/Homerooms    Test
9th Grade Homerooms    Mock PSAT
10th Graders and All other students who paid including 9th and 11th graders    PSAT
11th Grade Homerooms    Mock ACT
12th Grade Homerooms    Senior Activities

Thank you, 
Dr. Watkins
