All SLVHS Sophomores can take the PSAT for FREE at SLVHS during school on October 11
This week your sophomore student was given a letter to bring home, telling you about the opportunity to take the PSAT for Free at SLVHS on October 11th during the school day.
This opportunity is made possible by a state College and Career Grant awarded to SLVHS last year.
We simply need parent permission for each student who wants to take the test. I am including an additional copy of the letter attached to this email in case you need it.
The PSAT stands for Practice SAT – the test most juniors take show college and career readiness. The chance to take the practice test on site for free is a great opportunity for any sophomore no matter what you and your child see as the proper post-secondary path to take. The results can also help SLVHS to support students in their academic needs.

Club Day at SLVHS
Cougar Club Benefit App Raises Money for SLVHS
eScrip has transitioned to a phone app called Benefit. You can use it to purchase items from over 200 retailers such as Amazon, eBay, Kmart, CVS, Safeway, Home Depot, major airlines and more (see www.benefit-mobile.com/our-retailers for a full list) and they will donate 2-10% of your purchase to the Cougar Club to support academic enrichment programs. Last year the Cougar Parent Club made $250 with only six people using it. We could make so much more (and not have to do other fundraisers) if more people would sign up. It just takes a couple of quick steps to get started:
- Download the Benefit app.
- Select SLV High School Cougar Club as your beneficiary
- Link your credit card or bank account.
- Then you purchase gift cards for the amount of your choice for any of the retailers on the list and use those to make your purchases.
Please try it out. This a great way to support SLVHS educational programs without having to spend any additional money.
Email email@example.com if you have any questions about it or problems enrolling.
After you pass your driving test, you will be issued a provisional driver license. For the first YEAR of having a provisional license, you must be accompanied and supervised by a licensed parent, guardian or other licensed driver 25 years of age or older, or by a licensed or certified driving instructor when you:
- Transport passengers under 20 years of age at any time, for the first twelve months. (Siblings with note of parent permission in car is okay)
- Drive between 11 pm and 5 am for the first twelve months.
This means that for the first year of having a provisional driver’s license, you cannot give anyone under 20 years old a ride unless it is your sibling or you have a licensed parent, a guardian, or other adult 25 years old or older in the car with you.
An exception for driving someone to and from school only is possible with parent and principal of school permission.
You are also not allowed to drive between 11 pm and 5 am during your first year after getting your license unless you have a licensed parent, a guardian or other adult 25 years old or older in the car with you.
If a driver with a provisional license is violating these laws and has an accident, by law parents are held responsible.
A 30-day restriction will be placed on the teen’s license if he or she receives two or more points for violations in one year. Three or more points nets a teen a six-month suspension and a one-year probation. If the teen violates probation, the suspension can extend beyond his or her 18th birthday. Additionally, community service hours or fines will be imposed for violating certain provisions.
