All juniors are eligible to take a free SAT on Wednesday, Feb. 27. You must sign up online using the voucher students received from their English teacher. A review for the free SAT will be on Saturday, Feb. 16, and the cost is $25. You must pre register for the review. Registration forms available in Room 231 or at www.paschalhs.org
Freshmen Vocabulary Sessions
Sessions begin Monday, Jan. 28, and run through Thursday, March 7. All freshmen are encouraged to attend but if your student did not score "perfectly" on the "Determining the Meaning of Words" section of the PSAT they are expected to attend these sessions. Students pick one session to attend per week. Ask English teacher for schedule.
Sophomore PSAT Review Sessions
All sophomores are encouraged to attend one critical reading, writing and math section per week. These sessions run the month of February. Schedule available in Room 231 or at www.paschalhs.org
Parents and Students: The vocabulary and PSAT reviews are vital to your success with the PSAT and the SAT.
We expect all college-bound students to take advantage of these FREE review sessions. We have many phone calls from parents at other schools wanting to send their children to these reviews, which are for Paschal students only. Please take advantage of all we offer. It is for you and your future academic opportunities.
