This year, Hanford High School is able to offer an incredible opportunity for students’ future success!  Students in grade 9 will be taking the 8/9 PSAT and students in grade 10 and 11 will be taking the PSAT/NMSQT on October 10.

 We have decided to do this because the PSAT:

  • Increases student access to scholarship money
  • Increases student access and capacity for AP classes.
  • Results in higher scores on the SAT
  • Provides focused practice on any skills that a student may be lacking

Further, the PSAT/NMSQT in grade 11 allows students to be considered for National Merit Scholarship, a highly prestigious collegiate scholars program!

  • Students need to fill out the test with a No. 2 pencil.  We will have some available for student use on test day but it is best for students to come prepared if at all possible.
  • Students can use a scientific or graphing calculator on the test but MAY NOT use a cell phone, laptop, any device with a QWERTY keyboard or internet access.  If a student does not have a stand-alone calculator that can be used on test day, please fill out the Google Form by clicking here
  • Cell phones must be off and in a backpack if a student brings them to the test session.  This might be a good day to leave the phone at home.
  •  Finally, a good night’s sleep (8+ hours) and a good breakfast make a world of difference in helping students through a long test session!
  • Thank you for partnering with us for your student’s success and Go FALCONS!‚Äč

Healthy Youth Survey

2018 Healthy Youth Survey coming in October

Our school will participate in the 2018 Healthy Youth Survey during the week of October 8-19. Students in grades 10  and 12 all across Washington state take the survey every other year.

This survey provides important information that can be used to guide policy and programs for adolescents in Washington. The Healthy Youth Survey measures health behaviors and related risk and protective factors and includes questions on topics such as violence, alcohol, tobacco and other drug use that can result in injury and/or impede positive development among youth. The survey also include questions about sexual behavior, orientation, identity, and abuse.

While student participation is encouraged, it is voluntary. The survey procedure is designed to protect students’ confidentiality (no names, addresses, etc. are collected). A copy of the survey is available for your review in the school office, and additional information is available here

The survey will be administered during one class period during the week of October 8–19, 2018. Letters, as the attached sample, will be sent out to all parents of students who are in grade levels that will be participating in the survey. If parents do not want their child to participate in the survey, they will need to complete the bottom section of their letter and return it to the school office by October 1, 2018. These students’ name will be added to the opt out list.

The Healthy Youth Survey is a collaborative effort of several state agencies: the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), the Department of Health (DOH), the Department of Social and Health Service’s Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery (DBHR), and the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Control Board (LCB). The survey is conducted under a state contract with Looking Glass Analytics, Inc.

Thank you for your help in this important research.

Wednesday, September 5th

6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Join us in the commons for a brief message from Mr. Christensen & Mr. Davis. You will then be dismissed to your student's first class.
