SCHS Newsletter Oct 8, 2017
Dear BOBCAT Nation,
This Wednesday, October 11, is our Sage Creek PSAT Day.
Please note that there are several activities taking place depending on each student’s grade level and whether they elected to take the PSAT.
In short, all students participating in the PSAT need to arrive to school at 7:30 a.m. and report to their designated classrooms. Non-PSAT testers and seniors can arrive at 8:30 a.m. for their activities.
*The NCTD bus service will be operating as if it is a 7:30 a.m. start time. Students not taking the PSAT will have access to a supervised campus.
J. César Morales
Principal, Sage Creek High School
