College Day: Wednesday 10/16

Parents and Students,

College day is on Wednesday, October 16th, an important day at Olympian High! There are going to be many activities going on so please read this information carefully.

  • Seniors WILL NOT be attending any classes. Seniors will report directly to the gym at 7:30 for a cap and gown assembly and the panoramic picture. Please remember our dress guidelines. Do not jeopardize the opportunity to be in the picture by wearing something inappropriate or being taken out of the picture due to uncooperative behavior. Seniors will be dismissed after the picture ONLY IF you bring in a signed parent permission slip that you will be job shadowing, doing community service, or visiting a college campus. The permission slip will be emailed out to 12th graders by Mr. Patterson.
  • ALL 9th, 10th, and 11th graders will report to their regular period 1 class. Since it is College Day, please wear a college t-shirt to school! We are on a modified day schedule with student lunch time at the end of the day. Students will be released at 12:00 pm. Buses will depart school at 12:15.
  • 9th graders need to bring your laptops fully charged! You will be working on your e-portfolio and other activities.
  • 10th and 11th graders will be taking the PSAT test. Report to your Period 1 teacher. Students will receive a pass if they will be taking the test with another teacher. Please bring No. 2 pencils, a 4-function calculator, and a book to read when you are finished with the test. See the acceptable calculator list here, https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10/taking-the-tests/test-day-checklist/approved-calculators. Students will have to place their backpacks in a separate area in the classroom on test day. No cell phones will be allowed on your person during the test. Please make sure to eat a good breakfast and get plenty of rest the night before. There will be no nutrition break. The inside cafeteria lines will be open on Wednesday morning from 7:15 to 7:25 before school. There is no penalty for guessing, so please try your best! You can also access practice exams HERE to prepare in advance.  You may be eligible for scholarships based on your score!

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Regards,

Mrs. Bumatay
