The PSAT is a national practice test for the SAT and can lead to scholarship money for juniors with high scores through the National Merit Organization. Many students take this test more than once, but scholarships are only given for scores during the junior year. This year, the test will be given in person January 26th. Freshman in Math 2 through Juniors are eligible for the test. It is free for students who receive free or reduced lunch and $17 for all others.
The President's Volunteer Service Award recognizes individuals and groups who perform community service. It is a national award. Students who are active in the community are encouraged to keep track of their hours from April 25, 2020 to April 16, 2021 and submit these hours to Anthony Grier, Assistant Principal, NO LATER THAN April 17, 2021. Students will be recognized at Class Day and on the website.
Students who are 16 or older and who complete at least 100 hours receive the Bronze Award. Students who complete at least 175 hours receive the Silver Award. Students who complete at least 250 hours receive the Gold Award.
Students who are 15 or younger have lower hour requirements--50 hours for Bronze, 75 for Silver, 100 for Gold.
A sample sheet is attached. Parents may NOT verify hours--adult sponsors or supervisors of activities should verify the hours. Groups who log at least 200 hours may also win this award. Clubs should consider submitting for the group award.
Please put your age on your form so we know what award level you should receive.
