The timeframe for the PSAT/advisement lessons is 7:30-11:35. Students will report directly to their assigned advisor classrooms for YouScience activities as well as PSAT testing (see list below).

Here are a few important reminders about Wednesday-

  1. Eat a good breakfast on the day of testing.
  2. Be on time and report directly to your place of testing/advisement. This information was given out during advisement.
  3. Bring 2 # 2 pencils and a calculator. (acceptable ones were listed in the PSAT study guide)

Digital Learning Day for Seniors - October 16, 2019

Wednesday, October 16, 2019, will be a digital learning day for seniors. Seniors will not be expected to attend school on campus, but instead will complete assignments for the day from home.


Assignments will be posted by your child's advisor to their advisement’s Google Classroom. The assignment must be completed no later than 3pm, October 16, in order to get credit for the digital learning day. If the assignment is not completed, your child will be marked absent for October 16, 2019 and will not be allowed to exempt their exams at the end of the semester. Assignments should be posted to Google Classroom by October 9th. Seniors may choose to complete the assignments before October 16th if they would like.


We are excited to make this option available to the class of 2020, and we hope that we have 100% completion of the assignments.
