GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Today’s Hispanic Heritage Month trivia is that in 1990, Oscar Hijuelos was the first Hispanic writer to win a Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for his novel The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love. Junot Díaz, winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for his novel, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, was another famous author with Hispanic roots.

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.

Also juniors: If you have not received a PSAT study guide, please see Mrs. Dennis in the guidance office.

ATTENTION WILDCATS! Movie Night at Huntington Park, starring Knives Out, is TONIGHT! Tickets are still on sale for all students. Ticket links can be found on your Canvas Course or Davidson’s website. We hope to see you all there!

If you have requested a key card before October 1st, please come to the office to pick it up.
