Prep. PSAT testing, the PPSAT, will begin next Wednesday, October 2nd. Please be sure that scholars are well-rested and well-fed and on campus absolutely no later than 7:50 a.m. on Wednesday. Testing will begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. (We are going to treat the PPSAT as an authentic practice for the real PSAT exam that will take place on October 16th.)
The testing room assignments for the PPSAT and PSAT will be posted on the glass in the lobby of our campus near Mrs. Huckeby’s (aka Miss Paula’s) desk. Scholars, please note your room assignments so that you’ll know where to go on Wednesday morning.
Special Announcement: Personal items are not permitted in the testing rooms. All backpacks and electronic devices will be stored outside of scholars’ testing rooms and may not be accessed by scholars until testing has concluded. That said, we highly encourage scholars to leave their cellphones, smart watches, FitBits, headphones, watches with alarms, smart glasses, etc. at home for security purposes. Scholars will only need their class materials for 3rd and 4th block. We will finish by lunch on both days and all scholars will return to their normal 3rd block after testing.
Scholars must bring the following items on test day:
1. No. 2 pencil(s);
2. an eraser; and
3. a College Board permitted calculator to use on the calculator math portion of the exam.
Should you or scholars have any questions, please do not hesitate to email Mrs. Markel. [email protected]
As always, we thank you for your support and for being part of our wonderful community!
