PSAT Day Update
The following information is about PSAT Day. We will have an adjusted bell schedule on Wednesday, October 12th for PSAT Day. All students in grade 10 and specific registered students in grade 11 will participate in the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) at Seneca Valley High School on Wednesday, October 12, 2022. By taking the PSAT/NMSQT, juniors enter competitions for scholarship programs conducted by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, and other organizations that use PSAT/NMSQT scores.
All sophomores and testing juniors are required to report to school at the regular scheduled time and will test in specific classes. Emails with specific testing locations will be sent to student through their mcpsmd.net accounts. There will also be signs posted around the building with testing locations to assist students on test day.
Students who are not testing for the PSAT administration should follow the adjusted bell schedule. The school buses will arrive at the regular scheduled times, therefore, if students rely on bus transportation, please plan to come to school and report to the cafeteria and auditorium to participate in various activities during the time of testing. Lunch begins at 12:15 p.m. After lunch, students will follow the adjusted bell schedule with Social-Emotional Learning activities for the remainder of the instructional day. These activities will include two (45 minute) rotations:
- Academic Rotation
- Wellness Rotation
More details will follow in the upcoming newsletters. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Mike Kim at Michael_T_Kim@mcpsmd.org or Ms. Kisheena Wanzer at Kisheena_J_Wanzer@mcpsmd.org. Thank you.
