PSAT/NMSQT - Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Wednesday, October 16th is a regular attendance day for Freshmen, Sophomores and Seniors.

On Wednesday, October 16, 2019, we will be administering the PSAT/NMSQT to all Juniors. The PSAT/NMSQT measures readiness for college, gives access to scholarships (such as National Merit), and provides practice for the SAT. This is the only day we will be administering the test. Juniors will be excused from classes periods 1 - 6. Students should refer to the email sent out today for their testing location. Study guides and practice tests were handed out in all Junior English classes to help students prepare.
Please encourage your student to get a good night's sleep the night before the test and have a healthy breakfast the day of the test.
If your student does not take the bus, leave plenty of time to get to school, students will not be admitted into testing rooms after the test begins.
