Coach Le would like to invite you every Tuesday and Thursday (weather-permitting), from 3:30pm-5:00pm, to come out to Horizon’s tennis courts and play. It’s a fun way to meet new friends, learn a new sport, and get some exercise. If you would like more information, please check the flyers in the hallway and contact Coach Le.”
Hey Hawks would you like to go to the game on Thursday? There will be a Spirit bus going to Rocky Mountain High School at 4:00. But wait, that’s not all. Before the game you can go to the Student Center for pizza. The cost is only $5 to ride and eat.
STUDENTS: College Fairs are not all alike! The most recent Fair held at Mountain Range High School focused primarily on in-state colleges. These upcoming College Fairs have a different focus. These are open to all students throughout Denver, so feel free to attend any that you might find interesting and see the bulletin across from the Counseling Office for more details.
Today is the Out-of-State College Fair at Monarch High School in Louisville from 6:30 - 8:30

ATTENTION JUNIORS AND SOPHOMORES:
If you are a college-bound 10th or 11th grader, now is the time to bring $25 to the Counseling Office and sign up to take the PSAT test. The test will be given on October 17, and spaces are limited to a first-come, first-served basis. Why take the PSAT? Because, for juniors, it is the ONLY WAY you can qualify for high-dollar National Merit Scholarships since these scholarships do not consider GPA or any other factor other than your PSAT score. Sophomores nation-wide often take the PSATas practice so that , as juniors, they will score higher. Additionally, the PSAT is your only chance to practice for the SAT test, which many students use for college admissions if they score higher on it than on the ACT.
SO DON'T DELAY -- SIGN UP TODAY!
