Higley District to offer SAT exam for young, accelerated students
Higley Unified School District will offer the SAT test on Dec. 1 at Higley High. While this test is open to all students, this specific opportunity is designed to give young, accelerated students a chance to better prepare for future college entrance exams. Spaces are limited.
Information about the SAT for families of younger students will be available during a meeting 7 p.m. Oct. 16 at Williams Field High School in room 199.
In addition, a representative of Johns Hopkins University will offer an informational meeting about its young talent program, which is available to sixth- to ninth-grade students who receive a qualifying score on the SAT. High-scoring young students will be honored during a ceremony Feb. 12.
To register for the SAT exam, visit the College Board website to create an account. Registration deadline: Nov. 2. Cost: $47.50. Optional essay portion: $17. The essay portion is not required for the talent search program and is not recommended for middle school students.
Due to internet privacy laws, parents of students 12 and under will need to call College Board at 866-756-7346 to request a paper registration packet. Packets must be complete and mailed to College Board by November 2nd. Registration packets received by College Board that are postmarked on or before November 2nd will be accepted for December 1st testing.
Chaparral Elementary is now a Leader in Me campus
We are excited to announce that Chaparral Elementary School is now a Leaders in Me campus. Using the Franklin Covey transformational program, staff and students will make leadership development a part of everyday learning, creating a culture of “share leadership” throughout the school and helping students take ownership for their academic learning and goal achievement. The program is based on the “7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” and will include common language in the classrooms and school activities to encourage and lead students. Learn more at the Leader in Me tab above.
Higley Unified School District launched an App this spring as a tool for communication with Higley families. The new system will allow schools to send e-mails, as well as push notifications for those who download the app. In order to receive e-mail communication, families must have a current, up-to-date e-mail address on file with their schools. Families that do not have an updated e-mail with the schools may not receive all the communication being sent.
If you have changed your e-mail in the last few months, created a new e-mail or have not provided an e-mail to your school, please do so as quickly as possible. If your child is rolling up to a new school, your current information will transfer with your child.
If you have not downloaded the App, we encourage you to do so. It can be found in your favorite App store.
All HUSD families should sign up for a ParentVue account. This allows parents to view student grades and absences, as well as see – when they are posted – class schedules and teacher information. The district also uses ParentVue during class selection times at the middle schools and high schools.
Sign up requires an IN PERSON visit to the school office. If you already have a ParentVue account, and your child is moving from one HUSD school to another, no action is required. The updated information will appear when it is available.
If you have questions, please contact your school's office.
