SECA Newsletter

October 2021

SECA Students and Parents,

I cannot believe we are already to our October Newsletter. It has been a whirlwind of activity since we started school this year and even though it feels like we are behind some days, I know that the work our staff is doing will move our student progress.

Thank you so much to the parents that were able to join us last week for Open House. The Open House information below includes most of the information presented to parents at the in person event. I hope you find it to be a useful resource. We hope you can all join us for our upcoming Town Hall meeting October 5th.

There is so much going on in the month of October. It is an important time to start planning for TSI testing, spring class enrollments and tutorial supports for students. 9th -11th grade students will be participating in PSAT testing (October 13th) or PSAT 8/9 (October 14th) and we will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week the last week of October.

We want to make sure that you have the information you need about resources and supports on campus. As we review our Campus Improvement Plan implementation for cycle 1, we will review how we are supporting not only our students and staff but our parents and community as well. If have any questions or need any additional information please feel free to contact me.

We definitely Win as a Team!

Don’t miss your chance to take the PSAT

For Spring ISD 8th- 11th-grade students, it’s the time of year to think about signing up to take the Preliminary SAT, or PSAT, test (also referred to as the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, or NMSQT).

The PSAT/NMSQT for 10th- and 11th-Grade Spring ISD students is on Oct. 13 this year. 9th grade students will test the PSAT 8/9 on Thursday October 14.

The PSAT is a great opportunity for rising high schoolers and high school underclassmen to experience the rigors and challenges of studying for and taking standardized college admissions tests. The PSAT is very similar in format to the SAT and makes a great practice test before taking the actual SAT.

Not only is the PSAT a great way to help get ready for later college admissions testing on the SAT or even the ACT, but the PSAT is also the qualifying test for the National Merit Scholarship Program, which has recognized over 3.3 million students and provided scholarships worth more than $1.8 billion since 1955.
