The PSAT/NMSQT exam will be given at Scituate High School on Wednesday, October 10, 2018. This is an opportunity for students to take a practice SAT test, which is identical in format to the SAT test used for college admissions. The Preliminary SAT (PSAT) is designed to better prepare students for the SAT, and provide an opportunity for students to be exposed to the format, content, structure, and scoring of the assessment.
The October PSAT also serves as the Qualifying Test for the National Merit Scholarship Program, an academic competition program which provides scholarship money, national recognition, and merit rewards to students in their junior year of high school. The program is highly regarded by colleges and universities, and provides students with invaluable opportunities. Students are only eligible for the National Merit Scholarship if they take the PSAT in October of their junior year.
Scituate High School will administer the PSAT/NMSQT to juniors on Wednesday, October 10th. The cost will be $20 per student, which covers the exam, administration fees, scoring, and access to the score portal, allowing students to work digitally to improve their scores for the SAT. Any interested juniors should sign up for the PSAT in guidance beginning Monday, 9/17. Payment must be received by October 5th. If you need financial assistance to support your student taking this exam, please contact guidance. Sign ups will be first come first serve.
We strongly urge all college-bound juniors to take advantage of this opportunity. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Hitchings, Director of Guidance, at Kaitlin.firstname.lastname@example.org or 401-647-4108.

Way to GO Spartans!!
At their annual team breakfast during the pre-season, the girls took up a collection for the Cirella-Dipalma-Zuller Memorial Fund, which is a Warwick Schools scholarship in honor of three young ladies who lost their lives tragically. The Lady Spartans Soccer Team presented Pilgrim Coach Tom Flanders with $200 after our Injury Fund Game. The young ladies on the team do a great job of representing Scituate and make us coaches proud.
