On Wednesday, October 10th, all juniors will be taking the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (aka PSAT/NMSQT). This is an opportunity for them to compete with all other 11th graders in the country for college scholarship money. All seniors will be taking the SATs during the school day. There is no cost to you as the parent for either of these exams. We do ask that you encourage your child to properly prepare for the exam, while we do the same at school. Please reach out to Mr. Henry at DHenry@bridgeportedu.net with any questions
The Award for Aspirations in Computing honors young women at the high-school level for their computing-related achievements and interests. Any US high school woman in grades 9 through 12 is eligible to apply. Award recipients are selected based on their aptitude and interest in technology and computing, leadership ability, academic history, and plans for post-secondary education. Applications can be submitted anytime between now and November 5th, but I ask that you encourage your students to apply sooner rather than later. The application includes a number of multiple-choice questions and short essays -- this should not take long to complete. To apply, students must go to https://www.aspirations.org/participate/high-school.
