8-202 – November 2019 News

November 1st, 2019

Dear Parents/Guardians,

This is a very exciting month for the graduates and I’d like to share a few details that will answer some questions you may have.

On Saturday, November 9th, the children will be taking the TACHS exam at St. John’s Preparatory unless otherwise instructed.  I’m sure that you and your child have given careful consideration to the choices they will put down on their admit cards.  Make sure that you sign that card and keep it in a safe place until Saturday.   Plan to arrive at your test site at 8:15am on the day of the test. Students must bring two sharpened Number 2 pencils with erasers, the Admit Card, and identification (Student ID or Library card) though I understand that is rarely checked.  Any type of electronic or battery operated devices, such as calculators, watches, or cells phones, scratch paper, food, and beverages are also not allowed.  The students have been well prepared for this day.  I know they will do their best, and I hope they get the results for which they are hoping.
