Advent, by definition, calls us to some kind of action. As Catholic Christians, it is a time to 'clean house' as the Centurion reminds us in the Gospel reading a few weeks ago; " I am not worthy that you should come under my roof...". For the Prato family, we strive for consistency in our preparation by taking part in weekly service as a family, nightly affirmations of Christ in our lives and by making reconciliation a priority. "The house needs a little tidying," my eldest daughter commented.

PSAT/NMSQT scores were released on Monday, December 11. Your student should have received an email from the College Board with a confirmation code to access their scores report online. We have uploaded the student scores into Naviance. If your student took the PSAT test in October and has not received an email from the College Board, they may log into their Naviance account. Once they have signed in, go to the About Me tab and then scroll to the bottom of the page for the test scores link. All students that took the PSAT test will receive their PSAT exam book and a detailed score report in February. We will also have an updated list of SAT/ACT prep resources available in the counseling office in February. See this document and video on how to access and understand the PSAT/NMSQT scores.
