High School

 

Important PSAT/NMSQT Information

On October 13th, Pea Ridge High School will administer the PSAT/NMSQT, an exam that is co-sponsored by the College Board and National Merit Scholarship Corporation. This exam serves as an entry point for high school juniors to over $300 million in scholarship dollars. All sophomores take the exam, but only juniors are eligible for the scholarships and have the option to register. 

You can read more about the National Merit Scholarship Program here. The PSAT assesses the same knowledge and skills as the SAT, providing a check-in on college readiness before you take the SAT. Although Arkansas colleges and universities require the ACT, many out-of-state schools require students to take the SAT for admission. 

Please review the attached information and, if interested, complete this form and submit your $17 exam fee to Mrs. Spivey in the front office before Friday, September 10.

 

Juniors

The Spanker Creek Crafts Fair

The Crafts Fair is coming up October 13- 17. Every year the junior class is responsible for raising money to pay for prom. This is our biggest fundraiser each year.

Volunteering for this event is a great way to earn credits toward your class dues (normally $30) and, if you volunteer enough hours, prom tickets could also be discounted or completely paid for!

Parents/Guardians may also volunteer to earn credits for their child. Complete this form to express interest or contact Ms. McWilliams, Mrs. Staats, or Mr. Carreira for more information.

  • Here are some pictures of the Blackhawks preparing to face the Shiloh Saints on Friday:
