PSAT 11th grade Announcement
ATTN Juniors!
 On Wednesday, October 30th , Arcadia High School will host a PSAT testing opportunity during the school day.  Taking the PSAT is a great way to prepare for the SAT test, which assesses critical reading, mathematics, and writing skills. It also provides opportunities for students interested in qualifying for the National Merit Scholarship Program.  We have 75 open slots for 11th graders and registration is on a first come, first served basis.  To register, students must go to the bookstore and pay the $20 registration fee with cash or check. Seats are limited so timely registration is important. Registration will remain open as long as seats are available. If you have any questions, please email me at  sarajohnson@susd.org .
