Hello!

One of the main components of the Next Level Scholars Program is SAT Prep during junior year. SAT Prep is a required event and participation is expected of all students. Be sure to complete the sign up form linked below (by Friday 1/29 to get top priority on your session times) and set some goals for yourself as we prepare. As a reminder, tutor.com also offers SAT Prep if you'd like to get a head start. (Please feel welcome to reply to this email if you need a refresher on how to log in!)

This is the last week for the Next Level Scholars Photo Contest! The contest ends on January 31st. Be sure to put on your DRDFS gear and get your entries in today!

Lastly, fundraising this year will look a bit different. Be sure to read the spotlight section down below to learn a bit more about how fundraising will work this year and how you can be a winner!

NEW: SAT PREP WITH THE PRINCETON REVIEW
SAT Prep sessions with The Princeton Review will be split into groups for each session day. In order to maintain program and scholarship eligibility, students must attend the SAT Prep sessions. 

  • Session #1 will take place on Wednesday, February 24.

  • Session #2 will take place on Wednesday, March 3 OR Thursday, March 4. You will only complete SAT prep one of these two days, so please select the times that work best for your schedule.


Before the sessions occur, DRDFS will be mailing SAT prep materials to your home. If your address has recently changed, please let us know ASAP by completing this form. Questions? Email Marissa at mdangelo@drdfs.org or text (734) 354-7274.
