Hi Everyone,
Just a few, quick reminders that have already appeared elsewhere but I want to make sure everyone gets this information:

AP Testing Updates and Info
Please read the detailed information in Cougarmail this week. New information about how to pay and actual dates and time are included. I've reprinted the payment info since this has probably been the most asked question of the week.
New Advanced Placement (A.P.) Testing Updates for Students and Families
AP Testing begins May 11th and concludes on May 22nd.
How Do I Pay for the Tests?
SLV High School is now accepting payment for AP Exams. Students, you should log in to your College Board account, see how many tests you are taking and multiply that by $94. 
If you are part of the free/reduced lunch program, your cost is $53/test. 
Send a check made out to SLVHS, and put your (student's) first and last name in the memo line. Address the envelope to SLVHS Attn: Annina Hausmann. 
Payment is due to SLV High School by May 4th.
If your situation has changed and you and your family need financial support at this time, please contact Annina Hausmann at
And the dreary weather seems appropriate for our non-prom day. I know this is hard and disappointing for many of you (and your parents too). I love seeing you all dress up and everyone being so fancy. I am sorry. Know that we care and we are here for you.
