Test Results

On September 18, your son or daughter was given their PSAT 8/9 or PSAT 10 or SAT scores from Spring 2018 testing.  I would encourage you to review the information provided in the packet.  The detailed report includes a predictor for SAT scores, next steps for students and a question analysis and access code for students to review questions they need to improve before the next testing cycle.


Students should be regularly logging into Kahn Academy to obtain free SAT practice that is specific to their test results.  Last year, each student was given the opportunity to link their PSAT and Kahn academy accounts to best utilize this resource.  Log into www.kahnacademy.org for more information.

Seniors who would like to re-take the SAT may log in to www.collegeboard.org register for testing.

 Food Resources

Food resources are available in Ottawa County, and it’s now easier than ever to find those resources online. Residents can search for food pantries and community meals, either by date or location, at ottawafood.org/findfood.
