For All Students Testing tomorrow: be sure to drink lots of water starting TODAY!…drinking water will give you lots of clarity and will help you to focus. Also, get plenty of rest, and eat a good breakfast. You will report DIRECTLY to your testing LAB in the morning. You are not permitted to bring ANYTHING WITH YOU into the testing area, so leave your book bag and phone at home OR in your locker. Make sure you have NEW batteries in your Calculator and bring 2- number two pencils with you to the Exam. Good luck! Once testing has concluded and all testing materials are collected, students will be dismissed.
