Attention 10th, and 11th Graders -- We will be giving the PSAT here at Hawkins on Wednesday, October 24.  The PSAT is a national test designed to prepare you for the SAT at a low cost.  You will receive access to a customized study plan for the SAT with your test results.

This is not a mandatory test, but it is highly recommended for all college-bound juniors.   Not only does the test give you good practice for the SAT, if you are a junior, your scores could qualify you for a national scholarship. HISD will pay for the test this year, so make sure to take advantage of this opportunity!

**All sophomores and juniors were given the opportunity to sign up in their English classes, and we also made announcements and had a sign up sheet in the front office.  

**All homeschool students who wish to take the PSAT at Hawkins need to register and pay $16.00 by September 12, 2018.

Junior/Senior Parent Night -- We will have an informative meeting for all juniors and seniors and their parents on Thursday, October 18th at 5:30 in the Auditorium.  We will be covering important topics including college planning and scholarships.  

FAFSA Workshop
-- Immediately following the Junior/Senior Parent Night, all seniors and their parents are invited to attend our FAFSA workshop on October 18th in the large high school computer lab.  We expect to start that around 6:30.  (See the FAFSA tab for specific information about the FAFSA and what to expect.)

Credit by Exam -- Students may choose to take a CBE for acceleration.  Exams are ordered from an off-campus agency, and students must make a 80% or better to be awarded credit.  (See the school counselor to register for an exam.)
