Advanced Placement Testing (Cont’d) General Testing Guidelines You must bring your student I.D., a pencil with eraser, and a blue or black pen. (Talk to your subject area teacher about whether or not calculators and what kind of calculators are allowed for certain tests. We will not provide any calculators). You must also arrive to testing on time. You will not be allowed to bring a cell phone in to testing. The CollegeBoard is very strict about this policy due to situations that have occurred across the country in the past. Tests can take longer than 4 hours. Students testing in the afternoon must account for this time when planning work schedules and commitments following testing. Review Sources The CollegeBoard offers test prep materials and practice tests. Some of these resources are free, others cost. http://www.collegeboard.com/?student http://www.collegeboard.com/student/testing/ap/prep.html Through the CollegeBoard web site www.collegeboard.com/apstudents, students will also find more information about AP testing and different college requirements for scores on tests to earn credit and advance standing. Please refer any specific questions about testing offered at Millard West to Mrs. Zoucha, 402-715-6001.

The Midwest Region depends on high school blood drives to meet area and national blood needs. To help meet this need, the Red Cross has had great success in recruiting high school students and encouraging them to be lifelong donors. In order to donate blood you must:    

We encourage all eligible students (and parent/community members) to donate blood. Our goal is to collect 121 usable units. Please talk to your son/daughter about giving blood. If, for any reason, you would prefer your child to not give blood, please make that known to them so they do not register. If you have any questions or concerns about the blood drive, or if you would like to donate, please e-mail Jim Johnson at: jajohnst@mpsomaha.org.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PARENTS

Project X Parties Project X is an anything goes-type teenage movie. In it three unpopular students gain immediate fame thanks to throwing a party at one boy’s house when his parents are out of town. At the party, alcohol, ecstasy and social media are contributors to the party getting out of control. This is more than just a teen movie with them portrayed as having “fun.” It goes way beyond fun with teens attempting to recreate Project X with their friends. At this time of year, parents need to be even more vigilant than ever. In Houston, a Project X-inspired party turned deadly when one teen was shot and killed when other party guests began firing randomly into the crowd. What are the goals of such parties: 1)Create a large group, easily done with social media 2)Massive destruction of property 3)Use of alcohol and other drugs What can parents do? If you hear or see signs of such gatherings, consider following the steps of a proactive parent who caught wind of a local Project X party being planned:  After he heard about the party, he asked his kids what they knew about Project X and then reminded them of where he stood on underage drinking and other drug use.  He spoke to them about the potential real life consequences (legal, health and safety).  He pointed out that even if the kids weren’t drinking, smoking or using other drugs, they could still lose a lot simply by being present at one of these parties.  He reminded them that if they found themselves at such a party, they could contact him and he would be there to pick them up.  He helped them plan alternative activities for that night that were fun and safe and encouraged his kids to invite their friends and discourage them from attending the party.  He networked with other parents to alert them and informed local law enforcement.
