News and Notes from Mr. Cassie


Hello Shumate Families,

Our 8th grade students will take the PSAT tomorrow. This is a very important assessment, and sets the stage for success on the SAT in three short years. 

Attendance is extremely important for our 8th grade students tomorrow. Likewise, the assessment will begin shortly after the arrival bell, so please help your child to arrive on time. Students that arrive more than 10 minutes late will miss the mandatory instructions, and will need to take the alternate assessment for absent students at a later date. 

There is no way to study, or cram information prior to the test. The best way to prepare is to get a good night of rest, eat a healthy breakfast, and tackle tomorrow with a positive mindset.  

Warmest Seahawk Regards,

Eric Cassie & Dave Anderson
