PSAT – Tuesday, October 3
Freshmen, Juniors and Sophomores who signed up to take the PSAT will take that test on Tuesday, October 3. This year the PSAT is being administered electronically nation-wide. There is no make-up for the PSAT. Today before school, students taking the PSAT received a website and login code to access preparation materials, to include a practice test. The PSAT is a much different format than our students are accustomed to seeing. It is important for students wishing to perform well on the PSAT to take at least one practice test under similar testing conditions.
For at least two days before the PSAT students should:
- Get a good night’s sleep – 8 to 10 hours is recommended
- Eat well and drink plenty of water
The morning of the test, students should:
- Eat a breakfast with plenty of protein
- Arrive to HTHS by 8:00 am to find your testing room
- Be sure to bring two sharpened No. 2 pencils, an approved calculator, a bottle of water, and a snack

Daily Homecoming Picture Opportunity!
Each year on the Sunday before Homecoming Week seniors are invited to come to the school and place a senior poster on the wall in the first-floor main corridor. Senior posters often showcase photos from the student’s high school years and/or their involvement in HTHS activities, organizations, athletic teams, etc.
This year seniors can come and place their poster on the wall on Sunday, September 24 beginning at 2:00 pm and closing at 4:00 pm. Please note that posters should be attached to the wall using Command strips so that they can be easily removed without damaging the wall paint. Please have your student come prepared with these strips.
We look forward to celebrating our seniors during Homecoming Week!
