Oct 16 – PSAT Day Schedule – 12:17 dismissal
On Wednesday, October 16th all sophomores and juniors will be taking the PSAT test during the school day. The district covers the costs of all of our sophomores and juniors participating in the test. This test is an opportunity for students to practice taking an SAT test before they take the SAT for college admission later in their junior and senior year.
While the sophomores and juniors are taking the PSAT test, all freshmen will be engaged in a program on local Native American culture and history by the Greater Lowell Indian Council.
We encourage all seniors to use this day for college visits. This day will be excused for seniors as long as they let the Guidance Office know what they will be doing that day toward their post high school plans (i.e. visiting a college campus, meeting with military recruiter, working on their resume for employment, etc.). Please indicate your plans in the book on Mrs. Whitehouse’s desk.
