Michelin Scholar Testing Information
12th-grade students have the opportunity to take the Michelin aptitude test (PTI & Bennett) if they are interested in applying for the Michelin Technical Scholars program. Students must pass both tests offered by Michelin in the same test session in order to become an applicant for the Michelin Scholars Program. Anyone interested is allowed to take the test only 3 times in a lifetime.
Testing will be offered on March 4, 2021 at Lexington Technology Center's Multipurpose Room at 9 a.m. Students must register and bring a permission form (for travel and miss class) to participate. Questions? See Ms. Augsburger or Mr. Magyar in E202 and E203
The ASVAB test (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) will be administered on Friday, March 19 at 9 a.m. at LHS. This test is available to students in the 10th, 11th, and 12th grade.
ASVAB scores are used to determine if you are qualified to enlist in the military and to assign you to an appropriate job in the military. The ASVAB is also a great career exploration tool.
Taking the test does not obligate you, or register you for military service.
Students can sign up for the ASVAB in room E-202 and E-203, or they can email Mr. Magyar (Career Specialist) or Mrs. Augsburger (Career Specialist) at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
FREE Math Tutoring
Students wishing to attend should engage with their math teachers and let them know they will be attending, and seek advice on what should be accomplished during the help session. Space will be limited due to the size of the A111. It is very much appreciated when math teachers, students or parents email Ms. Klopfer to let confirm attendance prior to arrival. We don't want to turn anyone away due to space.
Virtual Calming Room - Check-it Out!
The Virtual Calming Room is a place for students, families and staff to find strategies for managing emotions and feelings in positive ways while building resilience. Sometimes, life gets challenging and overwhelming. We can feel stressed with life’s events, both big and small. The Virtual Calming Room provides resources and tools to help you find new ways to manage life, explore new problem solving opportunities and develop coping skills. Enjoy and take some time for yourself.
