If any student has not picked up their PSAT score, please do so during your lunch in the Guidance office.


Compass testing will be held next week for seniors still needing to meet benchmarks.  Teachers, please refer to the email sent by Mrs. Katz last week for the list of seniors and when they will be testing.  Seniors, if you have questions related to testing, please see Mrs. Katz.

**FAFSA Reminder for Seniors . . . Don’t forget that the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for current seniors becomes available on January 1, 2015.  It is important to fill this form out and submit it early in January if you are going to attend college next fall.  Do Not Wait because grant dollars run out quickly and we don’t want SCHS students who are eligible for aid to miss out on getting money to help pay for college.  You and a parent will also need to apply for a PIN number to complete the form (a PIN link is on the FAFSA website).  Visit and look for the 2015-2016 FAFSA form!!  Talk with your school counselor if you have questions. 


**Reminder that NHS is still offering tutoring on Mondays and Thursdays in room 173 from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. This is for ALL subjects here at the high school AND subjects at ECS.  This is also a great opportunity to get a jump start on ACT Prep.  If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Green.

Next June the CHA will bring together rising high school seniors from Kentucky and Murray State University’s service region for three weeks. We would love for your students to join our interdisciplinary living-learning community on the Murray State campus.

Students selected for the Academy should have a 3.5 GPA (on a four point scale) and an ACT score of 25 (or the equivalent PLAN/PSAT/SAT score).

Students receive:


• An additional 6 hours of free classes during their senior year of high school.

• A $2000 per year housing scholarship at Murray State

The only cost is a one-time $195 tuition-processing fee (waived if the student receives free or reduced student lunch or an ACT fee waiver).

The dates of the program are June 6-27, 2015.  The deadline for student applications is March 1.  Additional information plus student applications are available on-line at:
