On October 10th, Seniors who have not passed the EOC Math or the ELA 10 graduation requirements will take the SAT in the morning. This test is being paid for by the district office. This is a tremendous opportunity for seniors to meet these graduation requirements. You do not need to sign up, but if you have any questions please contact Mr. Brady.

The PSAT will be offered on 10/10 at PHS during the school day. All sophomores will take this assessment for free. If your child is in 9th or 11th grade and would like to take the PSAT they can pay a $30 fee at the front desk to Mrs. Virtue to take the assessment from Monday 9/24 through Friday 10/5. The PSAT is used to help students judge how well they will perform on the SAT, or as a National Merit Scholar qualifying test.
