Attention Juniors!  The PSAT (Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) will be taken by all juniors on Wednesday, October 15th, during the school day.  All juniors must see Mrs. Fenech in the Career Center to register for the PSAT.  Donations for the cost of the test are $22.00.  Donations should be made payable to “San Mateo High School”.  Fee waivers are also available.  Students can visit the Career Center before or after school and during brunch and lunch breaks to register for the PSAT, from Tuesday, September 2nd through Friday, September 5th.  Remember:  all juniors must register for the PSAT and there is just one week to register!  Keep in mind that this is a great way to prepare for the SAT and to get feedback on improving skills needed for college success.  Juniors may qualify for a National Merit Scholarship.
