September 22, Half Day Information
Our first half day of school will be next Friday, September 22. The College, Career, and Life Readiness Team plans lessons and experiences for students on half days that prepare students for graduation and life after high school.
These days are important for students to attend as they will learn about future career choices, build resumes, go through mock interviews, write cover letters, walk through college applications, meet with future employers, and much more! The lessons build on each other to meet students' College, Career, and Life Readiness goals and are not easily replicated if a student is absent.
We are looking forward to our students leaving with a positive outlook on their future!
PSAT/NMSQT Test on October 26
On October 26, all Juniors will take the PSAT/NMSQT test to prepare for the upcoming change to digital testing in the spring.
Content on the PSAT/NMSQT is very similar to the SAT, with Reading and Writing and Math sections.
To prepare, full-length adaptive digital PSAT/NMSQT practice is available on the Bluebook™ app. More resources are available at the Official Digital SAT Prep on Khan Academy.
Learn more about the PSAT/NMSQT by visiting the CollegeBoard website.
Juniors Under the age of 18- Testing Consent Needed
Juniors who are under the age of eighteen and are participating in one of the Michigan SAT Suite of Assessments on a school day (SAT® with Essay, PSAT/NMSQT®, or PSAT™10) need parental consent to provide College Board with optional student information, opt into the BigFuture School™ mobile application, and opt into Connections.
BigFuture School allows students to receive their test scores on their mobile devices.
