Happy National Testing Day, don’t worry there’s games included

After tests are taken, freshmen and sophomores will get to choose from an array of activities to ease their mind. Evan Kershner, history teacher, has a few of the board games that will be available in his room. Student council and Phil Stielow, business teacher, are the individuals who made all of this possible.

Seniors will not be allowed in the building on Tuesday, April 9, due to National Testing Day. Freshman and sophomore classes will take the PSAT while juniors will take the five-hour long SAT from eight in the morning until one in the afternoon.

All seniors will have to decide if they want to participate in community service projects around the high school and community, or complete a job shadow opportunity.

If students choose community service, they must report to the school at 8 am and stay until 12:30 pm with Denna Williams and Micah Sheppard, MHS P.E. teachers. However, if students decide to job shadow, they “will need to provide the school with a note, signed by the person they shadow, signifying they took part in this activity,” said Eric Hurelbrink, MHS principal.

The juniors will be allowed to leave once they have finished their test (as has been the custom for many years), however, freshman and sophomores are required to stay, as most of them take the bus home or another form of transportation.

In the spirit of new ideas this year, Student Council came up with different activities for students to enjoy after the PSAT. “I think it will help reduce my stress level,” said Desiray Tackett, sophomore.

These activities will include: an inflatable obstacle course that will be located on the football field “weather permitting,” said Phil Stielow, computer/business teacher

-volleyball in the gym from 12:15 to 1:30

-basketball in the gym from 1:30 to 2:30

-softball on the softball field (or you can watch if that’s what you’d prefer)

-a movie in the auditorium

-coloring and art in Ms. McKinney’s room

-board games in Mr. Kershner’s room.

The freshman and sophomore student council along with Stielow are the people to thank for the new set up after their test instead of being sent back to class for the remainder of the day.
