Our 8th graders will be taking the PSAT 8/9 on Tuesday, October 17, 2017.  Make-up sessions will not be available.   The PSAT 8/9 helps to establish a baseline for students as they enter high school and begin preparing for college and career readiness.  On the day of testing, students will need to bring 2 No. 2 pencils with erasers and an acceptable calculator (math teachers will provide more details in class).  Additional information will come home with your student before the Fall Break.
