PSAT and Solar Eclipse!

Dear parents,
We have a very exciting week ahead of us!

Next Tuesday is the PSAT for 8th and 9th graders!  This is an important day for your child because they can demonstrate what they have learned in mathematics and English Language Arts. It is also important for your child to be in attendance this day because the state of Michigan requires every school to have nearly 100% participation on the test.

Please see the letter linked here, which students received on Wednesday. This letter will tell you everything you need to know about what your child can expect on Tuesday. One thing I need to highlight for you is that YOUR CHILD MUST HAVE THEIR COMPUTER AND CHARGER ON MONDAY, APRIL 8!! They will leave it here at school overnight in their testing room. They will not have homework on Monday.

Another exciting event next week is the Solar Eclipse! The eclipse occurs on Monday. There is a letter attached here that will give you important information about steps UCS is taking to make sure that your child can both enjoy the eclipse and remain safe. Please read the letter carefully.

If you have any questions, please call my office at 586-797-3300.

Have a great weekend,

Beth Grillo

Principal, Jeannette Junior High School
