Hello!

Thank you to everyone who has participated in the Google Classroom posts so far! It has been fun for all of us at DFS to hear from so many of you.

We know many DFS partner schools are scheduled to take the SAT this week so we wanted to offer a few tips and say GOOD LUCK!

SAT Test Day Tips:
  • Get plenty of rest the night before the test -- don't try to cram!
  • Eat breakfast
  • Bring a snack, water, and gum or mints to help you stay focused

As a final reminder, the Welcome Back scavenger hunt survey is due October 13. You should have received a link to this survey via email. You will want to review the materials in Google Classroom while completing the survey. *As a bonus, we will be drawing for a few Next Level Scholars Swag Bags to mail home to a few lucky students who complete the survey by the deadline!*

Not sure how to join the classroom? Didn't get an email with the evaluation link? Please reach out to me at mdangelo@drdfs.org or text (734) 354-7274 for assistance.
