PSAT: Students who took the PSAT in October will be receiving their score reports on Wednesday Dec. 14th at 11am. There will be a short presentation explaining what these scores mean and how to use this experience to prepare for future college admissions testing. Parents will receive an email with information on how to understand score reports on Wednesday. Please review the score report with your student. This is a great opportunity to talk with your student about their hopes and fears about the future, and how to begin to prepare for this journey.

ACT/SAT Pretest and ACT Prep: Parents of sophomores and juniors recently received a survey about some potential test prep opportunities at New Vista. We will be offering an ACT/SAT Combo Practice test in February and hosting a Kaplan ACT Prep course in March and April. Dates are still TBD.  The cost of the Practice Test will be $20 and the cost of the Prep Course will be $599. The course is open to all BVSD students. We will keep you posted.

Parents of Seniors: College application and scholarship deadlines are coming up. Please encourage your student to stay on top of deadlines, and use the break to work on applications. If your student is unsure of what they want to do next year, please encourage them to talk with me.

HEALTHY KIDS INTITIATIVE: Does your student need health insurance? Boulder County Healthy Kids Initiative helps eligible families enroll in Medicaid and the Child Health Plan Plus. Call 720-561-6466 for more information.
