Boys Soccer
After a long weekend we hosted Lynn English. After holding possession for the first 15 minutes but unable to capitalize on scoring chances, Dan Johnson was able to score and give us the 1-0 lead. For Dan this was his 6th goal in the year. Shortly after mike Coffey was able to make it 2-0 before half. Coffey was able to first time finish a cross from max Carbone. Coffeys goal was a great momentum shift for us going into half time. In the second half we had numerous opportunities and goal scoring chances but were denied by great goalie saves from the English keeper. Max Carbone was dribbling in the box when an English defender pulled him down and we were awarded a penalty shot. Carbone stepped up and scored the PK to give us a commanding 3-0 lead. This is the way the game finished improving our record to 8-2-1. We host Lynn classical on Friday afternoon

Guidance Update

October 14th

GRADES 10 and 11

PSATs are tomorrow 10/15 at SHS. Students should arrive between 730 and 745. Room proctors will begin the test at 8AM. Students should not be late and can be turned away at the door if they are tardy.

Please bring #2 PENCILS only and a calculator.

The actual test time is 3hrs and 30 minutes. This time does NOT include the preliminary section where students will bubble in biographical and school specific information. Students will likely be done between 1230 and 1pm. Please plan transportation accordingly. Students can bring their cell phones into the building, but they will be turned off once they enter the testing classroom.

The Early Action and Early Decision deadlines are rapidly approaching. At this point, you should have already met with your counselor and requested transcripts and teacher recommendations through Naviance.

Once your portion of the application is complete, SUBMIT it!!! As we have discussed on numerous occasions, you can and should send your portion of the application independent of the counselor’s portion (transcript, rec letter, and supplemental forms) and teacher recommendations. Additionally, as we have also discussed, your official SAT or ACT scores must also arrive by the early deadlines. If there will be additional scores sent after the deadline, you should report on the Common App.

If you haven’t yet shared your college essay(s) with your counselor, please plan on doing that!!!!!! Combined, we have read thousands of essays and know what the really good ones look like. We want to help you be the most competitive applicant you can possibly be.
