Student Council is hosting a Canned Food Drive in support of the NW LA Food Bank. For every ten cans, students can earn one hour of community service. The top three homerooms will earn prizes, too! The drive ends December 11th.

Students – The PSAT will be given again at Byrd on Tuesday, January 26th.  This is a College Board exam that gives 10th and 11th grade students an opportunity to check their progress towards college readiness.  It also provides practice for the SAT.  For 11th grade students, PSAT scores are used to screen for candidates for the National Merit Scholarship Program Competition.  Participation in PSAT testing is voluntary.  Students planning to test must register by paying the $17 test fee and the deadline is TODAY.  You may pay online at PayForIt.net or to the bookkeeper in the office.  If you took this test in October, you cannot take it in January.   Mrs. Prothro will take up that money later.  The exam fee is non-refundable.  Call Mrs. Prothro at 364-5455 if you have any questions.
