PSAT for 10th & 11th Graders October 11th 2017

The PSAT/NMSQT will be offered at Eastlake on October 11th, 2017 and it is for 10th and 11th graders. The test will be during the school day from 7:30-11:30am. All 10th graders will automatically be signed up for it for free as the district pays for it. The test is optional for 11th graders, but about 90% of them take the test. It is $16 for juniors and you can either pay with cash or check made payable to EHS at the Bookkeeper’s window before school or at lunch OR you can log into Parent Access at www.lwsd.org for credit card payments. Juniors should come and pick up a Student Study Guide from the Counseling Center. Sophomores will be receiving the Student Study Guide in their English classes.
The PSAT will prepare students for the SAT and if they are a junior it will enter them in the National Merit Scholarship program for recognition and scholarships. This is not to be confused with the Fear Free practice SAT tests offered on the weekends at EHS. The PSAT is the only test that will connect students to national scholarships.
Deadline to register for the test is October 4th, 2017. There will be no refunds after October 4th due to administrative and test costs.
