Please note that 8th grade students will be taking a standardized assessment - the Cognitive Abilities Test (the "CogAT"), Wednesday through Friday (Sept. 21-23) of next week. The test will start promptly at 9:20 am. We anticipate that the test will end around 11:30 a.m., but may run longer. Please do not check out 8th graders on these days if it is possible to avoid it.
For the letter that was sent home with your child in September 2016 about this administration, use the link above.
The PSAT is "a preliminary version of the SAT," an exam students take before attending college. More information is available all over the internet. One brief explanation that may prove helpful is available here.
