The following items are reprinted from the Aurora High School Communicator newsletter.
Aurora High freshmen are responsible for providing refreshments for the Homecoming dance on Oct. 12.
In previous years, the school was able to find a corporate donation for refreshments, and is hoping to do so again. Anyone who could help with a donation or would like to create a refreshment committee made up of parents of freshmen should let class adviser Kasie Burroughs know at 330-954-2132 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Class of 2017 officers this year are: James Kristell, president; Colin Heath, vice president; Tyler Thieding, secretary; and Ian Doemling, treasurer.
Juniors and sophomores are encouraged to sign up for the 2013 PSAT-National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which will be given Oct. 16 at 7:40 a.m. in the high school.
On average, students who take the PSAT-NMSQT earn higher scores on the SAT than those who do not. Test takers will receive My College QuickStart, a personalized college planning kit based on test results.
Students receive an online score report with projected SAT score ranges and state percentiles, the power to sort questions by difficulty and answer explanations.
They also get a customized SAT study plan with practice tests and personalized list of colleges based on their location and preferred major that can be refined according to their interests.
To register for the PSAT, return the form from the Communicator newsletter or obtained from the guidance office with the $16 fee.
Checks should be made payable to Aurora High School. Practice test booklets are available in the guidance office upon payment. Registration begins Sept. 23 and ends Oct. 9.
