Parents and Students:
I hope you were able to get outside this weekend to enjoy the good weather. The next batch of rain comes on Wednesday. Drive carefully out there and be safe.
1. We will be closed the week of Feb 19-23rd . PCS is closing that week as a Mid-Winter Break and emergency school closure allowance in case of fires. Because so many of our students are in Petaluma City Schools, we follow their calendar. I know this can be a challenge for those families outside of PCS. Please let us know if you would like to set up an additional session the week before or after the break.
2. Juniors: it is time to start thinking about whether you want to take the SAT or ACT. While some schools are not requiring the tests for admission, they do require them for scholarships and for placement into math and English courses. The content for the SAT and ACT is very similar, but the format is quite different. Take a free practice test and score it to see which test is the better choice for you. If you want help preparing for the test, email us and we can set it up.
3. The Sonoma County Public Library just finished up their 2024 Winter Reading Challenge. Check out their reading bingo sheet; inspire yourself to try reading a new author or genre. Scroll down for the explanations in English and Spanish. Alternatively, you can try an audio book or movie. There is so much to explore.
As always, we are here to cheer you on, help you achieve your goals, encourage you through setbacks, and celebrate your victories.
