***End of Course Testing and Advanced Placement Testing dates are the the bottom of this e-mail.

***Princeton Review has a new website featuring its latest study guides/aids for the new SAT. It's really an informative and fun site, and I think those students deciding how to prepare for the SAT would find it useful. The site is:

It requires Flash Player, and can take up to 4 minutes to download on dial-up modems; however, it's worth the wait.

***Advanced Placement Exams will be given the weeks of May 3 and May 10,  2004. AP studentst have received a calendar of dates and list of fees required to take the exams. Registration and fees are due March 29 to Ms. Ross in the school office.
