PSAT Offered Wednesday, October 15

Juniors and sophomores who wish to take the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) on Wednesday, October 15 should sign-up in the office and pay the $15 registration fee before Friday, October 10.  The PSAT is the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.  Juniors who wish to enter the National Merit competition must take the PSAT.  There are only 25 seats available so students who wish to take the test should sign-up immediately.  Seats will be awarded to juniors first and then remaining seats to sophomores on a first-come, first-served basis.  This is a national testing date.  Students who miss the test on this date may not take the test at a later date.  Students who wish to use a calculator on the test should bring their own calculator.  The test will begin at 7:55 and take all morning.
Who should take the PSAT?
- Juniors wishing to enter the National Merit Scholarship competition.
- Juniors who may take the SAT or the SAT Subject Area Tests for college admissions.
- Sophomores who regularly score high on standardized tests and who wish to practice for taking the
PSAT next year as a junior.  The scores for sophomores do not count for the National Merit Scholarship
Please make checks payable to St. Mary’s Colgan High School.

ACT Prep Classes

Angie Sparks and Audrey Dickey are offering three separate ACT prep courses in October in preparation for the October ACT Test Date. (Please see schedule below).

 Each session will cost $15.00 and will include content and skill instructional reviews and practice tests.  If you are interested in having your child attend one or all of the prep courses, please download and complete the attached registration form (or pick one up from Mrs. Dickey) and return it along with the fee to the respective teacher by Friday, October 3rd. 

Juniors receive priority for this prep course, but if there are available seats, seniors and sophomores may register.  (We will open it to seniors and sophomores after October 3rd).  Due to limited seating, we must accept all registrations on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Registration and payments will hold your seat.  There will be no refunds after October 8th for the Reading Prep course and after October 15th for English and Science.  If you have any questions, please contact one of us by email or phone.  Thank you!

Dear Parents,
In our effort to improve communication between parents and school, St. Mary’s Colgan Schools are implementing a telephone broadcast system that will enable school personnel to notify all households and parents by phone within minutes of an emergency or unplanned event that causes early dismissal, school cancellation or late start.  The service may also be used from time-to-time to communicate general announcements or reminders. This service is provided by SchoolReach, a company specializing in school-to-parent communications.  We will continue to report school closings due to snow or weather on the local TV and radio stations as well as the PowerSchool Daily Bulletin and the parish/school website.  SchoolReach will be used as an overlay to the public announcements.
