PSAT Information: TEST TOMORROW

PSAT

Hello Staff, Parents, and Students,

  This is a friendly reminder that PSAT Testing will be held tomorrow, October 26th at WHHS. Testing will be held in the cafeteria from 7:30 a.m. -10:30 a.m. Counselors and Alternate Education staff will be supporting testing and must report to the cafeteria at 7:15 am. 

All 10th and 11th grade students registered to take the PSAT must report to the cafeteria at 7:20 am and be ready to begin testing promptly at 7:30 a.m. Late students will not be permitted to test. NO ANNOUNCEMENTS OR ALL CALLS WILL BE MADE DURING TESTING. 

 

IMPORTANT: 

 * Sleep and eat! 

 A good night’s sleep for at least three nights preceding the exam and a healthy breakfast on October 26 are important for sustained mental focus and function.

 * Bring an approved calculator! 

Calculators are permitted and advantageous on the exam. We recommend that your student bring a fully charged calculator and fresh batteries. Carefully check the PSAT Student Guide for approved types of calculators. 

 * Be on time!

Students who arrive after testing has begun will not be allowed to test. Testing will begin promptly at 7:30 am. All students taking the PSAT will report to the cafeteria. Late or absent students will not have another chance to take the PSAT this year. 

 

We urge all sophomores and juniors to approach the PSAT with seriousness of purpose and wish them all the best in their performance. If you have questions, please feel free to contact Mrs. Darwin-Howard, School Counselor, at darwsh@whsd.net.
