From The Principal

Dear  Chieftain Families,


We have reached December and are nearing that midway point of Quarter 2 and we will then race toward the end of the Semester and Exams just after the Winter Break. This time of year moves fast. This is when we value your commitment to your students more than ever as keeping them on track at home is important as the Holiday fun comes! It is also a time for student to use time off to begin preparing for the coming SAT and PSAT. Students can use downtime to take Practice SATs and PSATs on Khan Academy. All students have their login and are all tied to their accounts. Why? Because practice helps and helps a lot. A study by the College Board and Khan Academy showed that students who practiced for at least 6 hours with Khan Academy SAT Prep gained on average 90 points from test to test, and those who practiced more saw gains of up to 200 points. That’s value for time that translates directly into college access and scholarships!
