JUNIORS: Information on taking the PSAT

The PSAT/NMSQT will be offered to interested juniors on Wednesday, Oct. 14th, in the loft. This is a timed test that will start at 8:25 and go until approx. 12:00. This is excellent practice for the ACT and SAT and is also the entrance exam for the National Merit Scholarship program. If you would like more information, please contact Mrs. Fowler in the counseling department. We only have 30 exams and they will go on a first come, first serve basis! The cost is $16 (cash or checks payable to ISD 318) – you need to bring payment to get signed up and receive a practice book.
