PTA Meeting 2/13: Shameek Robinson from the College Board

Please don’t forget!  Shameek Robinson from the College Board (makers of the SATs and SAT subject tests) will be attending our PTA meeting to discuss the best strategies to help our kids prepare for the SATs and SAT subject tests.  He will go over all the free resources available through the College Board and Khan Academy to help our kids improve their scores on these important tests.  These free resources include test prep tailored to each child as well as their question of the day.  IT IS NEVER TOO EARLY TO START!  He will also discuss College Board’s college planning and scholarship search functions.

He is a wonderful, engaging speaker.  His advice will be invaluable and will be targeted for students of all ages.  So we hope to see BSGE parents from ALL grades attend.

We hope to see everyone tonight!

Best —
Nancy and Trevor
PTA Co-Presidents
