ATTENTION 8TH GRADE PARENTS - PSAT 8 TEST IS WEDNESDAY, 4/12.
Please read PSAT 8 IMPORTANT INFORMATION before testing day. Counselors met with 8th graders to pre-ID them, provided the attached documentation, & provided a PSAT 8 Student Guide. Students were directed to share this information with parents, prior to testing day. It is VERY IMPORTANT to note that your student MUST BE ON TIME for testing. Late testers will not be admitted. This test is a state requirement, so please be sure to read this information, & prepare your student for testing day.
Thank you! Mrs. Welsh & Ms. Peeler
If your student needs support, please contact their AGS School Counselor. We are happy to help.

Autism Acceptance Spirit Week
Magnificent Mind Monday: Autism is a neurological variation, which means the brains of autistic people work differently than the brains of allistic (non-autistic) people—and that’s AMAZING! Celebrate how amazing it is that all our minds work in different, wonderful ways by wearing a fun hat!
Neurodiversity Tuesday: To celebrate the beauty in the diverse spectrum of the human mind, wear a colorful or tie-dyed shirt to school!
What’s Your Passion Wednesday: One characteristic of autism is to show incredibly focused passion for topics of interest. What are you passionate about? Wear a t-shirt that shows something you love!
Sensory Friendly Thursday: Autistic people often have a variety of sensory sensitivities. Dress up today in your comfy clothes (including school appropriate pjs and/or sunglasses). If possible, teachers may use natural light in the classroom instead of fluorescents.
We Are All Tigers Friday: Love and acceptance go a long way. Wear orange and black to show your support and acceptance for autistic individuals, because we are all FENTON TIGERS!
