Juniors and Parents: A Note From Mrs. McHenry


This is to apprise you that there will be a new prerequisite for those students who would like to take AP Calculus AB. This new prerequisite is designed so that those students who are placed in AP Calculus will have the skills needed to be able to comprehend this difficult material in the classroom and then have success on the AP exam in the spring.

All juniors who would like to take AP Calculus next year will need to meet the following requirement:
500 on the SAT math exam OR
21 on the ACT math exam
Please note: PSAT scores will not suffice, as our studies have shown they are not necessarily a predictor of success on the math portion of the SAT. This means that you will need to take the SAT or ACT test this spring.

If you have not yet signed up for either of these tests, go to the following websites:

SAT: Sign up by April 26 for the May 7 test (it will also be given June 4)

ACT: Sign up by May 6 for the June 11 test

The tests cost money and are administered in Reno (perhaps in Quincy or Portola, depending on the date). If you qualify for free or reduced lunch, I can give you a waiver for the test.


There will be a math course alternative (approved by the CSU/UC as an a-g course) for seniors: Financial Algebra. That might be a good choice for some of you who cannot take Calculus.


We understand that score See MoreSee Less

What’s Happening With Friday Night Live?

Can you tell the difference between an e-cigarette, a pen
or pencil?
Vape Pens,E-Hookahs and Electronic Smoking Devices or ESD’s usually contain nicotine, are flavored and are powered
by a lithium battery.

They do not produce smoke in the traditional sense,
they produce an aerosol. Contrary to what the companies marketing these products want you to believe, the aerosol is NOT just harmless water vapor. E-cigarette aerosol has been found to contain at least ten chemicals known tocause cancer, and birth defects.

Flavors are used to market these products to youth.
Studies of e-cigarette use show that bystanders absorb nicotine from passive exposure (second hand smoke).
In 2014 slightly more than half of the reported exposures
occurred in young children under the age of 6.
