PSAT Schedule Reminder - Wed 10/14/15

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

On Wednesday, October 14, 2015, Milton High School will be administering the PSAT to all 10th and 11th graders. While this opportunity is a great benefit for our sophomores and juniors, it creates some logistical issues. In order to provide a quiet test-taking environment and appropriate proctoring, it is necessary to create a unique schedule for 9th and 12th graders on October 14th. Please make a note of the following: 

     Students in grades 10 and 11 will start school at the regular time of 7:50 a.m. and report to their grade level homeroom. When the testing is over, students will resume their normal schedule for the rest of the day. Students must be on time for the test.  Once the test starts no one can be admitted to the testing.

    Students in grades 9 and 12 will start school at 11:15 a.m. by going to their 5th period class. If a student has first lunch then he/she will go to lunch and then go to his/her 5th period class. There will be no block day on Wednesday, Oct. 14th.

    Please remember student athletes must be in attendance for the designated amount of time to be eligible to participate in a practice or game.

Buses on this day will run on the regular schedule. We realize that this may create a timing issue for freshmen and seniors who may take the bus. If it is not possible to arrange alternative transportation on this day, students may spend time in the morning in the cafeteria.


Thank you very much for your cooperation and understanding.

History Makers Presentation at Milton High School

Pathfinder, author and internet television host Monica Cost addressed students at Milton High on October 7 and presented them with a positive message about self image and finding strength in their own “core” values. Students in the American Experience classes as well as Milton High’s Young Men’s Group and Young Women’s Group were the audience for Ms. Cost and listened to ways in which students can change their own personal image through positive actions. Student Olivia Kelly said about Ms. Cost’s message, “I liked when she told us to remember what’s important to each of us. We shouldn’t try to fix ourselves to please others.” American Experience teacher Kathleen Kelley said, “Ms. Cost’s message about commitment to constant improvement and pursuit of knowledge was powerful one for my students.”

The presentation was coordinated by History Makers, a national organization that works to bring mentors from the community into our schools, and their biggest event is the “Back to School” campaign, where the organization pairs schools and local mentors. This is the first year Milton High School has been a part of the Back to School initiative, but hopes to make it an annual event. The presentation culminated with students pledging to a “commitment of excellence,” a pledge that students all over the United States made over the past few weeks as participants in the “Back to School” initiative. Humanities Department Head Barbara Wright said, “It’s important for our students to see successful role models in their own community, and it was powerful knowing our students joined students around the country in pledging to commit to excellence. These students will be the successful role models of the future.”
