Attention seniors: a free, optional in-school SAT will be given for all seniors on Wednesday, October 14th. Every senior has automatically been registered so there is nothing you need to do on your end other than show up with a form of identification, a calculator, and two #2 pencils by 7:40 that morning. Rosters will be posted on the windows in the Commons and in your senior Canvas page starting next week. Once testing is completed in your room that day, you will leave campus, as classes will not be in session that day.
All other students not testing that day will have an eLearning day, similar to what you do on your off-hybrid days.
Please contact Mrs. Clausen for any questions or concerns regarding the in school SAT test.

Attention all juniors registered to take the PSAT on October 14th: Please check the windows by the courtyard for your room assignment for test day. Also, please check your Class of 2022 Canvas announcements for some additional test day information. Please see Mr. Anderson with any questions.
