A BIG thank you goes out to Heather Smith, Andi Cotter, and Gail Masayko, our parent volunteers who made the Mother's Covered Dish such a memorable event. Their talent and time were evident in every detail of the evening. 

There are more volunteer opportunities for parents, both moms and dads, Middle School and High School. Jen Hardie, our Parent Volunteer Coordinator, will be sending weekly emails to keep you notified about how you can help. 

Our volunteers have the full support of the administration. Jen Gregory, Director of Operations, will work with the moms and dads who want to help to ensure they have full access to our building when needed, meeting space, as well as administrative and facilities support.

You can expect Jen Hardie's email to arrive shortly with more details about volunteering for the Family Communion Breakfast on November 17 and the Christmas Gala on December 1.

SAT-ACT Diagnostic Test for Juniors
Saturday, November 3, 2018
8:15 - 12:30 pm

Standardized tests are a part of the admissions application process.  Students will begin to take the SAT or ACT in their junior year.  Since most colleges will super-score (take the highest section scores on the SAT or highest composite on the ACT), it is to your advantage to take a standardized test more than once.
 
Many of you are wondering “Which test should he take?”   To help answer that question, we are bringing back our SAT-ACT Diagnostic Test.   It will take place at Devon Prep on Saturday, November 3, 2018 from 8:15 – 12:30 pm.  The SAT-ACT Diagnostic Test is a practice, hybrid test of the SAT and the ACT.  Students and parents will have the opportunity get his results on both tests and then decide which test he will continue with throughout junior/senior years. Results will be distributed at a Debrief meeting on Tuesday, November 13 at 7:00 pm.


For more information or a registration form, please contact Mrs. Eshleman at eeshleman@devonprep.com or 610-688-7337 x172.
