SAT Practice in Khan Academy Over Fall Break 

For families with current 11th-grade students, their first official administration for the SAT will be the week we return from the upcoming holiday, on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2023.   
Families, your child has been working through Kaplan Test Prep and doing weekly practice in Khan Academy as part of their Junior Seminar Classes to prepare for the SAT. Families, please encourage students to continue their Khan Academy Practice for the SAT during Fall Break over the holiday. 

We encourage all students to complete at least three 1-hour practice sessions in Khan Academy over the break to practice at the same frequency they currently are in their Junior Seminar class. This practice will allow them to stay current with their SAT Skills and feel prepared for the test on December 2.  

Para las familias con estudiantes actuales de 11º grado, su primera administración oficial para el SAT será la semana que regresemos de las próximas vacaciones, el sábado 2 de diciembre de 2023. 

Familias, su hijo ha estado trabajando a través de Kaplan Test Prep y haciendo práctica semanal en Khan Academy como parte de sus clases de Seminario Junior para prepararse para el SAT. Familias, por favor anime a los estudiantes a continuar su práctica de Khan Academy para el SAT durante las vacaciones de otoño. 
Animamos a todos los estudiantes a completar al menos tres sesiones de práctica de 1 hora en Khan Academy durante el descanso para practicar con la misma frecuencia que actualmente están en su clase de Seminario Junior. Esta práctica les permitirá mantenerse al día con sus habilidades SAT y sentirse preparados para la prueba del 2 de diciembre.
