SALISBURY HIGH SCHOOL COLUMN Keystone exams and late starts in January

Wednesday, January 8, 2014 by ASIA LETLOW Special to The Press in School

Salisbury High School students will take Keystone exams Jan. 8 and 9 and Jan. 13 to 16. They will be tested on subjects such as algebra, biology and literature. Students scheduled to take these tests were notified in advisory and should report to their assigned class no later than 7:30 a.m. on those days, for testing which begins 8 a.m.

Students not taking the Keystone exams will operate on a 2-hour delay schedule. There is no 2-hour delay on Jan. 15 and 16.

On Feb. 18, students and parents will meet in the SHS auditorium for financial aid night, where they will learn the dynamics of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. This informative meeting will help parents approach the crucial step of payment options toward their children's post-secondary education.

SHS's Key Club is collaborating with Operation Gratitude. Your help is greatly appreciated. If you have an old cellphone, send it to Kate Rossetti at SHS. From this point, Key Club will package the cellphones to be sent to Operation Gratitude. The phones will be refurbished and/or used for specific parts. The money is used to fund costs of sending packages to soldiers.

The registration deadline for the SAT practice test 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 18 at the Lower Macungie Community Center is Jan. 11. There is a small pre-registration cost. Following testing, parents and students are welcome to pick up test results and attend a strategies seminar 7 to 8 p.m. Feb. 4 at the testing center.

The late registration deadline for the Jan. 25 SAT is Jan. 10. It's not too late to register, although additional fees may apply under these circumstances. Don't hesitate-sign up now!
