The Illuminate Parent Portal is up and running at Haughton High School!
August 27, 2014 - The students of Haughton High School were given caregiver specific letters today during first block. These letters give the directions for parents or caregivers to log onto our new Student Information System. This portal will allow caregivers to check the student's grades, view assignments, and read about upcoming events, tests, etc. Please ask your child for the copy or copies he/she received today. You can then follow the instructions to have access to your Illuminate parent portal. We think you will be impressed with the information now available to you. Welcome to Illuminate!
If you are a sophomore or junior and want to take the PSAT, you need to sign up now.
Sign-ups to take the PSAT test will begin on September 3, 2014. The PSAT (preliminary SAT) is a program sponsored by the College Board and National Merit Scholarship Corp. It is a standardized test available to sophomores and juniors. The test gives you a chance to enter the NMSC scholarship programs and gain access to college and career planning tools.
The most common reasons for taking the PSAT/NMSQT are to:
§ Receive feedback on your strengths and weaknesses on skills necessary for college study. You can then focus your preparation on those areas that could most benefit from additional study or practice.
§ See how your performance on an admissions test might compare with that of others applying to college.
§ Enter the competition for scholarships from NMSC (grade 11).
§ Help prepare for the SAT. You can become familiar with the kinds of questions and the exact directions you will see on the SAT.
§ Receive information from colleges when you check "yes" to Student Search Service.
Sign-up in Mrs. George’s office beginning Sept. 3 through Sept. 12. The test costs $14.00, and will be administered at the school October 15, 2014.
There will be a parish-wide parent/student meeting on September 16, 2014, at the Bossier Instructional Center. The meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m., and will review the information about the test and its benefits to high school students.
