The SAT Challenge

The SAT Challenge!


On Wednesday, November 8th in Advisory, our freshmen, sophomores and juniors received their individual score reports from the practice PSAT and SAT tests that were taken in October.  Please view this video for an explanation of how to interpret the report.  We hope that this report does not become lost in the deep recesses of our backpacks, but instead lives on and helps us prepare!  We will be taking another practice test in March, in preparation for the official test days on April 10th and 11th.  It is our vision that all students graduate FHS with a post secondary plan of study in place, and we all understand that success on the SAT and PSAT are crucial assessments in the development of those plans.

We want all of our students to be more confident, prepared, and in control of their performance on the SAT, PSAT 10, and PSAT 9.  To help with this, we have created a social movement called "#thesatchallenge". Each month, we'll pose a challenge, and by participating in this challenge you could win an official CollegeBoard SAT Prep book!  

If you have a social media account:  
Simply follow us in one of these places, and we will randomly select 5 of anyone who follows us - before Thanksgiving break - on each account!! Each person can only win one book, but you triple your chances by following on all three!!

If you do not have a social media account: 
Not to worry! All challenges will have an opportunity to participate without needing an account. For the first challenge, we just want to know you're out there... Go to sat.svvsd.org and bookmark the site. Take a screenshot and, from your school account, email it to SAT-group@svvsd.org, and you're in!! We'll randomly select 5 emails received before Thanksgiving break.
 
Questions can be directed to SAT-group@svvsd.org and will be answered by Kimberly Wiggins, SVVSD Assessment Coordinator, or Ben Kalb, Instructional Technology Coach.

Notes: One prize per winner; only currently-enrolled SVVSD students eligible; not redeemable for cash/credit.

Please keep your eyes open for continued communication on how to best prepare for PSAT and SAT.  These assessments are very important to our students' post secondary plans, and we want all of our students to feel confident and well prepared to succeed.  Please contact us with questions, and thank you for accepting the challenge!
