Weekly Update for Friday, February 24th
A message from the Principal
Best of luck to our Girls’ Basketball team as they enter the state tournament this weekend!
There is a registration help session on Tuesday February 28 in the C Wing Lab at 3:00 PM. If you or your student is experiencing difficulty with the online registration process please plan to attend this open lab registration help session.
TCAP/CSAP testing is scheduled for March 13, 14, 15 and 20. Freshmen are scheduled for testing on March 13, 14, 15. Sophomores are scheduled for March 13, 14, 15, 20. Please see the link for the TCAP Schedule. Two classes will occur in the afternoon each day. All students must be in attendance for afternoon classes.
Junior ACT preparation will also be occurring on March 13, 14, 15, 20. We have chosen to take advantage of this timing with an opportunity that can only benefit our junior students. All juniors must be in attendance for the full day on March 13, 14, 15 and 20. Juniors will begin each day in the auditorium at 7:15 for a quick lesson related to ACT and then be released to their ACT subject-specific classroom. Juniors will follow a four-day rotation of related test-taking strategies, content review and individual test preparation. Each day your junior student will rotate and receive instruction in one of four areas of the ACT: English, Math, Science, Reading. Silver Creek instructors will be providing the preparation free of charge. We are also planning for the Princeton review to provide feedback to students who participated in the ACT practice test during this time frame.
Don’t forget to register for next year’s courses. If you need assistance please schedule an appointment with your respective counselor.
