“CUMULATIVE RECORD” FORMS GOING HOME: Elementary school red
folders will have a pre-written cumulative record sheet. Parents are
asked to review this sheet carefully and make any necessary updates or
corrections in the right hand column. Please pay special attention to
the Emergency Contact Information section. Parents/guardians are always
the first two contacts; if both are unavailable, the school will turn to
this information. Please make sure there are three people listed. This
new format is being used to reduce paperwork demands on parents at the
start of school. If the papers are returned and are accurate, we can
keep this system going!

PSAT’S FOR SOPHOMORES
AND JUNIORS: Sophomores and juniors who are thinking about
attending college are advised to sign up now for the PSAT. The PSAT is
the best practice for the SAT since the format and directions are the
same for both tests. On average, students who take the PSAT score higher
on the SAT than those who don’t. You also get free online access to My
College Quickstart, a great college and career planning tool that lets
you review your PSAT, provides you with a customized SAT study plan, and
gives a personalized list of colleges, majors and careers. Juniors who
take the PSAT may also qualify for scholarships and other programs. The
PSAT will be given at Gateway Regional High School on Wednesday, October
14th. Students must sign up in the Guidance Office by Friday,
October 2nd for this test. Cost is $14 (cash or check payable
to the school), which must be paid at sign-up. You will then receive
more information on the test as well as a practice test. Please contact
the Guidance Office (413.685.1107) if you have questions about the PSAT.
