Freshman, Sophomores, and Juniors- Wednesday, April 12th will be participating in the state mandated SAT or PSAT testing. Free breakfast will be provided that day in the Commons. Students should report to their assigned rooms at 8:05am with several number two pencils and a calculator. Cellphones, smart watches, and all other electronic devices should be left in lockers on test day. Most testing will be concluded by 1:00pm. Lunch will be served from 12:30-1:30pm. Students are dismissed for the day once their testing is completed. 9, 10 and 11th students will be allowed to leave after the SAT tests so arranging for a ride is really important. Students in the building after 1:30pm will be sent to classrooms until 3:05pm. 


Prom will be on Saturday, April 29. Doors to Fellheimer Auditorium will open for promenade (open to the public) at 6:45 pm. Promenade will be from 7:00-7:45pm with coronation at 7:45 pm. The dance will be in the commons from 8:00-11:00 pm, with after prom activities from 11:00-1:00 am. Promenade is not mandatory; however, students must arrive to the dance by 8:30 pm to be able to attend. No one may return if they leave the dance or after prom activities. Contact Emily Platt (platte@MCUSD185.ORG) via email if you have any questions.
