Lubbock-Cooper High School

Weekly Newsletter: November 4-8

PSAT 9 - November 6

9th grade students and parents:


The College Board's redesigned SAT along with the SAT Suite of Assessments now provides students the opportunity to take the PSAT at an earlier age and track their success for the SAT college entrance exam.


The PSAT 8/9 tests the same skills and knowledge as the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and PSAT 10—in a way that makes sense for ninth graders. It measures what they’re already learning, shows them whether they’re on track for college, and lets them know where they need the most improvement. That means students have time to tackle these areas long before they take the SAT.


Lubbock-Cooper High School is offering the PSAT 8/9 assessment on November 6th at 8:30 am in the PAC for 9th graders who wish to take it.


If you need additional information about the PSAT 8/9 please visit the following link or call a high school counselor.

CTE Spotlight - IPET

Mrs. McAllister teaches IPET. Instructional Practices in Education and Training is a field-based internship that provides students with background knowledge of child and adolescent development as well as principles of effective teaching and training practices. Students work under the joint direction and supervision of both a teacher with knowledge of early childhood education and exemplary educators or trainers in direct instructional roles with elementary-, and middle school-aged students. Students learn to plan and direct individualized instruction and group activities, prepare instructional materials, develop materials for educational environments, assist with record keeping, and complete other responsibilities of teachers, trainers, paraprofessionals, or other educational personnel.
