Jostens Orders for Sophomore Rings and Senior Cap/Gown

Jostens made a Sophomore ring presentation and a Senior Cap and Gown presentation Wednesday, January 11th at school. Each student received a packet of information for their respective grade. Seniors do not have to pay for anything when they place their order, but it is imperative they at least order their cap and gown, as after a certain point, the price will increase. Jostens will return to BMHS February 8th to take orders for both class rings as well as cap and gown orders and answer any questions. After this time, all orders will need to be placed online only. All seniors are strongly encouraged to read the morning announcements EVERY day on the BMHS website. The announcements can be found by looking on the right hand side of the BMHS home page. This is where all information will be communicated with regards to commencement, prom ticket sales, and all other senior information as well as deadlines, along with daily general information they may wish to know.

Next Level Test Prep SAT and ACT Seminar

March 1st is the free SAT at BMHS that your junior has already been registered for as part of state testing. All other SAT and ACT exams must be paid for and registered for by the student/family. We provide test prep at BMHS on February 15th for students interested in learning how to approach the test for $59. There is no prep that is so inexpensive and such high quality. The link to register is at the end of this email.

Test-optional college admissions is quickly disappearing! This fall over 400 U.S. colleges and universities are returning to test required or test-recommended admissions—with even more indicating that 2022 will be their last year for the test-optional experiment. To be sure, selective colleges, special programs, and scholarship providers see a student’s performance on the SAT or ACT as a highly critical factor in their evaluation of that student’s academic prowess. In short, in a post-COVID world, college entrance exams are regaining their importance.

Our six-hour preparation seminar helps demystify the SAT by explaining the test’s structure, the academic content covered on it, and testing and time management strategies students can employ to maximize their performance. Students learn specific, tangible strategies to answer more questions correctly, how to decipher questions designed to thwart their performance, and specific academic content that is regularly tested on the SAT.

Each participant receive six hours of live, engaging, interactive instruction, a guided outline of strategies to approach the SAT, a comprehensive 600-page, reference workbook, a 5-week SAT study plan, and a free, live, phone-in, pre-test tutoring.

Next Level Prep is a national leader in SAT and ACT preparation. We currently work with over 100 high schools here in Ohio alone and thousands of students (urban, suburban, & small town/rural) each year in states around the country. Our typical students see an 80 to 100 point increase on the SAT after taking our seminar. Our engaging instructors consistently score 94%, plus A ratings on student evaluations. So students emerge justifiably confident ith decidedly less anxiety bout their prospects on the test.

To learn more about our seminars, access our brief, 3:32, informational video at https://youtu.be/96iH4027ZgM or visit our website homepage https://nlpamerica.com.

Price is just $59 for Berea-Midpark High School students.

Register online at https://nlpamerica.com/product/berea-midpark-hs-sat-seminar-feb-15-2023/, using a credit card for the $59 payment. Registration closes on February 15th.

Please note that your high school asks us to conduct our SAT seminars on a school day to maximize the opportunity for student participation and to avoid extra-curricular, work, and family commitments that occur on evenings and weekends. Students are responsible for any missed classroom work for the day they are enrolled in this class.
