Message From the Principal, Mrs. Blevins

8th Grade Students and Parents,

This year, our 8th Grade students will be taking the PSAT 8/9 on Thursday, December 8, 2022.

This is a digital test which will be administered during the school day. Your child does not need to bring any materials with them to the testing location. You do not need to sign up your child or pay for the test.

Please note that the PSAT 8/9 is an assessment designed especially for grade eight

students. It is not the PSAT which your child will take in grades 10 and 11, but the results

are aligned with the PSAT and SAT. Your child does not need to do anything special to

prepare for the test. The test reflects the work that we do in class.

The test includes the following:

Your child will be asked to provide an email address to establish a College Board Account. This email should be a functioning email address as this is the way that the College Board will communicate scores and other information. We expect to receive these scores in February, 2023. They will be mailed to you.

You can learn more about this test at the College Board website HERE.
