Taking the PSAT/NMSQT as a Junior provides students an opportunity to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship while preparing for the SAT exam for college admissions.

Picture Retake Day | October 6
We will have our school portrait photographer on both campuses to photograph students who were absent on the first Picture Day (Aug. 24) or for those who ordered a photo package and are not happy with the portraits. Everyone who needs to have a picture taken will be called out of class during the day.
For those who were absent or not yet enrolled: Every student needs to be photographed to be included in our school’s yearbook. For those who would like to order the school picture, order forms are located at each school office and attached to this email. This completed form and payment should be given to the photographer on Picture Retake Day. Portraits may also be ordered beforehand online at SWIPHOTO.COM/PICTURES with school code 60061QA.
For those who previously ordered a portrait package but want a replacement portrait: Your student must return the first package before receiving a new package. Have them bring the package to school on Wednesday and give to the portrait photographer.
Students should wear dress code shirts. Anyone wearing a hoodie will be asked to remove it for the photo.
