This Week's Announcements

Burris Laboratory School Counseling Center Announcements 

Senior profiles are due to me today for any seniors who have or plan to ask for letters of recommendation or be considered for merit scholarships.  If you planned to turn in a Senior Profile but need an extension, let me know.  

PSAT will be administered to all Burris sophomores and juniors next Wednesday, October 29, from 8:00 until noon.  Because the Student Center did not have any rooms available, we will testing separately by grade.  Sophomores will be in rooms 213 and 214 here at Burris.  Mr. Rodgers’ and Dr. Comber’s classes will meet in other rooms around the building just for that morning.  The juniors will be with me in Cooper Science Nursing classroom 315.  I wanted to make sure that juniors knew where they will be going:  Coming from Burris, enter Cooper Science building by the main entrance in the middle of the building.  It’s just past Ball Gym and there is a sign for Cooper Science Building in front of the doors I want you to use.  Enter the building and take the first hallway on the left, there will be stairs just inside that hall on your left.  Walk up to the third floor.  Room 315 will be on the north side of the building, in the Nursing student section of Cooper Building.  Please arrive at the building 15 minutes early so that you have enough time to find the correct room.  All PSAT testers are asked to bring pencils and a calculator to their assigned testing rooms.  You will be given an hour for lunch once your group has finished testing.  Come see us in the Counseling Center if you have questions or are worried about where to go.  

It is important that everyone give their best effort on PSAT, so please make sure to get a good night’s sleep the night before and eat breakfast before coming to the test.
