Free, Mandatory PSAT
Students settled into their assigned rooms on Wednesday morning to take a mandatory PSAT. As students eased into their seats, teachers read the instructions, the time began and students opened their packets to view their questions and bubble in their answers.
This year, all sophomores were required to take the PSAT which was previously optional through CollegeBoard. On the day of the test, students with 0 period started at 11:04 and 1st period started at 11:33 to ensure that students taking the PSAT did not miss class.
Principal Dr. Jennifer Lashier applied for and received a college readiness grant which paid for the school wide PSAT as well as additional funds that went towards the College and Career Center.
In addition, TCHS will be offering the PSAT as a National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test which will allow Juniors to become national merit scholars. As a national merit scholar, students are eligible for academic scholarships as seniors.
A Bumpy Road for Students and Staff
The repavement of Temple Ciy Boulevard between Woodruff Ave and Eaton Wash Monday Oct. 9, in preparation for the repavement of Temple City Boulevard, and is slated to end by Oct. 20.
Students, parents, and faculty are asked by the city to be aware of road signs and traffic control. Students and staff were unable to leave the Temple City lot during lunch at least once, on Thursday Oct.12 because of work on Temple City Boulevard.
The project has caused problems for students and staff trying to enter the back parking lot. Due to the slow down in traffic, teachers have been asked to be more lenient on student tardies as a result of the traffic.
Not only is the repavement causing traffic jams, dust clouds in the air have formed along the construction that pose problems for students walking, and biking to and from school using the main street.
“There’s so much dust that you can’t see the road ahead of you,” Senior Kimberley Tjantra said. “Along with the dust, the smell from the road work makes it hard to breathe.”
