PSAT 8/9: This year, 8th graders have the opportunity to take the PSAT 8/9 on December 10th at 8:00am in the Millswood library. The PSAT 8/9 is designed to help prepare students for the PSAT and SAT by showing them what to expect and giving them insight on their strengths and areas for improvement. The cost of the test is $12. If students would like to sign up, they should bring a check for $12 made out to Millswood Middle School with "PSAT 8/9 - [Student Name]” in the memo line. Payments may be submitted before or after school to Mrs. Gonzalez (M/W/F) or Mrs. Torres (T/Th) in the main office. Spaces are limited and will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis so students should sign up sooner rather than later if they are interested. The last day to sign up for the PSAT 8/9 is Friday, November 1st. More details about the PSAT 8/9 can be found in the online student guide: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/pdf/psat-8-9-student-guide.pdf.
