Click here for the Method Test Prep SAT Review Letter

Dear Students and Parents of the Class of 2017,

I hope this letter finds you well and enjoying a happy new year.  The purpose of this letter is provide you with information regarding some of our upcoming college and career readiness activities.  Please take a few moments to review this important information as a family.

Preparing for the SAT
As you know, it is extremely important for students to score well on their SATs and ACTs as these assessment play a critical role in the college acceptance process.  In addition to using this information to make admissions decisions, many colleges will make determinations regarding financial awards for performance as well.  In many cases, families have realized substantial savings through performance on these important exams.

In order to help the juniors preparing for the February 27 SAT, we have arranged for a special day of instruction on Friday, February 12.  Any junior registered for the exam will participate in a three-hour workshop with an SAT specialist from Method Test Prep.  The course will focus on test-taking strategies, content review and the development of a multi-week study plan.  This is free to these students.  

Also enclosed with this letter is information regarding an SAT review class here at Hampton Bays High School, also through Method Test Prep, designed to prepare students for the SAT on May 7, 2016.

College Visits for the Class of 2017
This Spring, all members of the junior class will participate in two local college visits.  On Monday, April 18, students will visit both Suffolk Community College and Saint Joseph’s College with the goal of experiencing different types of colleges and diverse programs.  We will tour both campuses and engage in a number of presentations regarding admissions and majors.  In addition, Saint Joseph’s has generously offered to serve lunch to all students.  Buses will depart Hampton Bays at approximately 7:30 am and return at approximately 2:30 pm.  Again, there will be no cost to families for this trip.  Students should complete the enclosed permission slip and return it to Mrs. Fotopoulos in room 21A.

The district leadership team, faculty and staff of Hampton Bays High School remain committed to helping every student prepare for both college and career.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding college placement examinations or the upcoming trip, I can be reached in the main office at (631) 723-2110 or via email at crichardt@hbschools.us.
