WEEK OF December 11, 2017 


PSAT SCORES ARE COMING! 
We have been informed by the College Board that students who took the PSAT in October will be emailed / texted details regarding how to access their PSAT scores on Dec. 13, 2017.  The message will be sent to the email/phone number the student provided on test day.  The email will contain a link to the College Board.  Students who have not already done so will need to set up a College Board account.  Further information is available on the College Board website.  Students in grades 9, 10 and 11 and their parents will be receiving an email from the THS Counseling Department explaining the process.  Class meetings will be held in the upcoming weeks to discuss PSAT scores and what to do moving forward.
