Sunday Night Howl
Weekly Announcements sent every Sunday Night at 6pm
Good Evening New Tech Students and Families. This is Principal Martin with your Sunday Night Howl!
I want to congratulate our students on making it through the first semester of their block classes. Students took finals last week in their block classes. Report cards will be sent out this week. You should be getting those in the mail.
For the rest of this message, I want to focus on the information you need for SAT Day this week.
Thank you to all of the parents who have donated calculators! We officially have enough calculators for every student. Your prompt response to our request is very appreciated. This small school community never ceases to amaze.
SAT Day is this coming Wednesday. 9th graders will be taking the PSAT 8/9, 10th and 11th graders will take the PSAT/NMSQT, and the 12th graders will be taking the SAT. All 3 tests will start at 8:30 am. This means students MUST be in their testing room at 8:10. At 8:30, all testing room doors will be locked so any student who is not in the room before 8:30 WILL NOT be able to take the test. There will be no exceptions to this. I want to highly encourage all students to get to school early, and eat breakfast. The campus opens everyday at 7:30 am. Students who are not in their assigned testing room at 8:30 will be sent to a non-testing room where they will quietly do homework, or read.
The test session is expected to end around 12 pm. Once the test is over, students will be released for lunch. We will have an hour lunch so students can eat lunch and also attend their club meetings. After lunch, students will go to their advisory classes to debrief their experiences during testing. It’s good for students to be able to reflect on the test and how they think they did. After advisory, we will have a Fall Festival. This is a time that students will be allowed to play games, and participate in various activities, like a cake walk, pie in the face, and balloon pop. Or they can watch a movie in the movie room.
School will still start at 8:10 am and will end at 3:38 pm just like a regular school day.
We want our students to do their best on the test. Please help them by making sure they get a good night sleep and also eat a healthy breakfast in the morning. We will be serving breakfast at the school and as always breakfast is free to all students.
This will conclude your announcements for the week of October 10th through October 16th. If you have any questions about SAT Day, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are one quarter of the way through the school year so lets keep our heads up and always remember, we are the mighty timberwolves!
