On Wednesday, October 14, our high school will undergo building wide testing for all 9, 10, and 11th grade students. Our juniors will test at the American Legion in Elsie. Freshmen and Sophomores will test at the high school. Our testing will end around lunch time, and students will be asked to continue with their school day and complete 5th-7th hours as they normally would. The freshman will take the PSAT 8/9. The sophomores will take the PSAT. The juniors will be taking the PSAT/NMSQT (National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test). If students are absent, we will not make this test up. Taking the test is school provided only on the 14th of October.

On this day, our seniors are being rewarded for their outstanding performance on their ACT from last spring. Our seniors scored an average of 21.9 composite score, which is the highest average score our district has had in the previous five years. We are proud of their hard work and effort. Our seniors will also be accompanied by Mr. Baese, as it was his idea to offer a reward day if the students performed well on the test! The seniors are going to NCG Cinema at Eastwood Towne Center and will be bussed there to watch the movie “The Martian” with Matt Damon. If your child does not wish to go, please excuse them from the day by calling the office. For more information about the senior trip, please contact Ms. Blank or Ms. Batora.

Please make sure your child is in attendance that day if possible. There will not be a make up day for these assessments.
