Students, get ready for AP tests

The Sandy High Update

Wednesday, April 30, is the last day to purchase Senior All-Night Party tickets for $30. After that, the price increases to $50. Only students with tickets will be allowed to attend the party, which is held immediately after graduation on June 5.

While traditionally held at the high school, this year's party is being held at an undisclosed location, where seniors will have access to a variety of activities and games, as well as swimming.

For students taking advanced placement (AP) tests, it is never too early to start preparing. The AP calculus test will be held May 7; the AP English test will be May 8; the AP history test will be May 9 and the AP chemistry test will be May 13.

Students should pay the remainder of their fees on the tests and remember to begin cramming. The tests are optional, but are extremely beneficial for college. A high score on the test can lead to earning credits for college, which means one fewer prerequisite course in the future. This is a win-win situation, considering that a low score cannot count against you.

Class council elections also are coming up, and will be held during tutorial Friday, May 2. Students are encouraged to attend the assembly and pick the leaders of their class. Those elected will go on to represent their class in the student council during the 2008-09 school year.

Student athletes should also keep up to date on their games and practice schedules. April weather can bring several cancellations and delays, which means rescheduling. Practice and game times can usually be found on the activities board. Students are also encouraged to listen to the PA system for updates before and after school.
