PSAT REMINDERS: As mentioned in previous correspondences, our 8th grade students will be taking the PSAT this year as part of the comprehensive state testing series. The PSAT 8/9 will replace the M-STEP for ELA and Math for all eighth-grade students.

On Tuesday, April 9, sixth and seventh-grade students will not have school in the morning. Busses will pick up students approximately four hours later than normal, and school will begin at 11:35 a.m. Sixth and seventh graders should eat lunch prior to their arrival at school. This change is being made to accommodate the new testing requirements for eighth-grade students, who will report at their normal time in the morning to take the PSAT 8/9-please arrive promptly at 7:30. Eighth-grade students will have lunch between the test time and the start of classes. For general information about the PSAT 8/9, please visit: www.psat.org/8-9. A PSAT 8/9 Student Guide is available with information specifically about the test and practice questions: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/pdf/psat-8-9-student-guide-2017-18.pdf
